AcademyHealth’s Health Datapalooza plays an essential role in deepening the partnership between the public and private sectors to unlock data and develop smart policies to innovate and improve health and health care for all. This year, the event will focus on the data-driven solutions that are addressing critical public health challenges, propelling us towards healthier communities.

The 2024 election is fast-approaching, and discussions on the most effective uses of health data and policies to improve health care delivery and outcomes are more essential than ever. Mark your calendars for the 2024 Health Datapalooza, September 16-17, 2024, in Washington, D.C. You won’t want to miss the interactive workshops, unconference sessions, and networking opportunities where data innovation stakeholders can exchange ideas and expertise.    

STAY TUNED: AcademyHealth is in the planning stages for the 2024 Datapalooza as we reimagine the program and meeting format. More information will be available in the coming months. Sign up for our mailing list to get the latest Datapalooza updates when they become available.
