What is Health Datapalooza?


Health Datapalooza sits at the nexus of ideas, evidence, and execution. Where Federal policymakers and regulatory leads take their seats beside Silicon Valley startups and the health system’s chief information officers. More than a meeting, Health Datapalooza is a diverse community of big thinkers and roll-up-our-sleeves-and-get-it-done problem solvers who share a mission to liberate and use data to improve health and health care.

Today, as the challenges facing health and health care continue to evolve, we’re digging into the real world experience of turning information into innovation. What works, what doesn’t, why, and what’s coming next?
