Health Datapalooza supports a healthy exchange of big ideas from a wide variety of voices - bringing together a diverse and influential audience, and offering different viewpoints. Some of the most important contributions at Health Datapalooza come from patients, who offer meaningful insight and perspective into a variety of health care topics, including both health accessibility and quality of care.

Attend the 2018 Health Datapalooza as a patient and:

  • Contribute your voice to a meeting designed and planned by patients for a discussion of health accessibility and consumer choice.
  • Gain insight into how consumer data is being used to improve both access and quality of health care – and how to ensure your place in the discussion.
  • Be involved in the big decisions to improve health and health care for all.

In support of patient participation at this year’s Health Datapalooza, we’ve made available a limited number of complimentary registrations and full patient scholarships for patients who would benefit from participating in the 2018 event. 

We are no longer accepting submissions for the patient scholarships. 

The full patient scholarship includes:

  • One full registration to the 2018 Health Datapalooza
  • Travel and accommodation for the scholarship recipient
  • Reimbursement of up to $245 for meals and incidentals (based on GSA reimbursement for this zip code, calculated based on two full days and two travel days)

Complimentary registrations include:

  • One full registration to the 2018 Health Datapalooza

Travel and registration for patients made possible in part by the generous support of the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI)


Do you qualify for a patient scholarship?

Applicants for the scholarship must be attending the Health Datapalooza primarily to represent patients/consumers and add a patient voice to the discussion.  Preference will be given to activated and engaged patients who would be otherwise unable to participate in the absence or registration and/or travel support.  Individuals employed as full-time consultants, or in any paid capacity for health technology (including startups), pharmaceutical or device manufacturers, health care delivery systems, and state or federal government agencies are unlikely to qualify.

Applicants will be evaluated based on a number of criteria including:

  • Statement of interest (required with application)
  • Prior experience in patient advocacy or engagement
  • Participation in Health Datapalooza in previous years (we aim to have a mix of new and returning participants)
