Health Datapalooza focuses on the newest, most innovative, and effective uses of health data, and prizes the contributions of diverse voices and perspectives. You'll spend your days at the conference growing your network, building relationships with collaborators, and learning from experts with real world experience using data to improve health and health care.

What Separates Health Datapalooza from Other Health Conferences?

Just the Right Size

Some conferences are big and overwhelming, while others are small and lack diverse voices. Health Datapalooza offers a big conference feel in an intimate setting. The conference supports a healthy exchange of big ideas from a wide variety of voices in a setting where meaningful and action-oriented conversations take place.

Big Tent Conference

Health Datapalooza is unique in that it brings together diverse and influential voices representing both the public and private sectors, and offering different viewpoints - from industry leaders to policy makers, delivery systems to startups, academics to data liberators, patients to clinicians, and everything in between.

Action-Oriented

Datapalooza attendees appreciate hearing about the real world concepts and actionable steps that they can take back to their workplace – presented by both newcomers and leading experts with real experience using data to improve health and health care.
