Why Health Datapalooza?


Data | Policy | Action

There is no other meeting quite like the Health Datapalooza. This conference combines the latest in health data access, analysis and application with the foremost health policy wonks working to establish equitable, just and transformative policies aimed at solving some of health care’s most intractable challenges. Most importantly, the Health Datapalooza galvanizes this diverse community to action for the common good.

Collaboration Between Policymakers, Data Innovators, and Patients

Attendees will find meaningful collaboration and face-to-face conversations between influential policymakers and entrepreneurs about the big ideas, big opportunities, and policy hurdles for improving health and health care. It’s not a place where you’ll endure a tech sales pitch, but one where you’ll engage in stimulating conversation, hear about the latest innovations bringing change in the real-world, and rub shoulders with the people who are making it all happen.

Onsite Action and Results

As a program of AcademyHealth, the Health Datapalooza is grounded in evidence and real-world application of data to improve health care delivery. It’s not a place to focus on the theoretical; Health Datapalooza is where ideas get real.

Health Datapalooza attendees not only hear presentations about the practical guidance and innovative changes they can take back to their workplace, but they can also talk through a problem with their fellow innovators onsite.
