Health data and policy innovation are an integral part of all efforts to transform health care. Recognizing the consequential relationship that exists between health data and health policy advancements, we’re virtually convening the two communities to share their work, exchange ideas, collaborate, and tackle the most critical health issues facing the U.S. today..
Originally two independent events, the Health Datapalooza and the National Health Policy Conference (NHPC) were first presented jointly in 2020. The combined event established and reinforced the professional connection that exists between the health data and health policy communities.
Through a combination of plenary, breakout, and poster sessions, as well as networking and group working activities, the event harnesses and strengthens the synergies that exist between the data and policy worlds.
Participants have the opportunity to offer innovative solutions to directly confront the challenges, opportunities, and threats facing health and health care.
