The Best of Health Data and Health Policy Innovation

AcademyHealth is excited to once again offer the joint experience of the Health Datapalooza and the National Health Policy Conference (NHPC). Join us for three days of virtual, boundary breaking discussions about the latest and most important health policy issues facing our nation and the data and evidence that will drive innovation and help achieve our goals of better health and health care for everyone.

Through a combination of online plenary, breakout, and poster sessions, as well as virtual networking and group activities, the 2021 event will harness and strengthen the synergies that exist between the data and policy worlds and offer innovative solutions to directly confront the challenges, opportunities, and threats facing U.S. health care.

I enjoyed the merging of the data and policy communities. Was a much-needed blend of two groups who need to keep each other in-sync with the applied nature of what we are each doing, to ensure that what we are doing is rooted in need and not just academic exercise. – 2020 Co-located Event Attendee
