HDP attendees

Next week, AcademyHealth will host the 2023 Health Datapalooza in Arlington, VA on February 23-24. Health Datapalooza is a gathering place for people and organizations creating knowledge from data and pioneering innovations that drive policy and practice and generate market value. The two-day program is jam packed with exciting plenaries, breakout sessions, and networking opportunities. This blog post offers a sneak peak of all that Health Datapalooza has to offer in 2023.

Health and Safety

As always, protecting the health and safety of our attendees is our number one priority. All in-person attendees, staff, and contractors must have up to date COVID-19 vaccinations two weeks prior to the meeting date to participate. Attendee vaccination status will be verified via the software platform LINK. For instructions on how to use LINK to verify your vaccination status and more information about health and safety at Health Datapalooza, please visit our health and safety protocols page.

Rich Content: Learning and Leading in Keynote and Breakout Sessions

Health Datapalooza is the place for how, not hype. The agenda includes four plenary sessions across the themes of data, policy, and action. In these plenary sessions, speakers from across the health policy and heath data sectors will offer insights on the use of data as a tool for innovation, trust and transparency, the implications of data sharing and interoperability, and more. Attendees can expect to walk away from each session with calls to action that center equity, make them think outside the box, and inspire them to respond to challenges in health care with fresh ideas. Highlights from the plenaries include a keynote from Micky Tripathi, National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, a panel on digital health post Dobbs, a fireside chat with Jonathan Blum, Principal Deputy Administrator and Chief Operating Officer, CMS, and a keynote with Maneesh Juneja, Digital Health Futurist, looking at “Generative AI: What does it mean for the future of healthcare in the USA?”
