Call for Presentations

2018 Health Datapalooza

General Information

At the Health Datapalooza, attendees from both the public and private sectors engage in meaningful discussions around the future of health data and share the latest innovations and new methods for liberating data and creating actionable knowledge to drive health policy and practice. This year, we are inviting you to send us your best ideas for presentations to one of eight conference tracks - including a "wild card" track for your most out of the box innovation! From consumer-facing technologies and cybersecurity, to value-based systems transformation and multi-sector data sharing, and real-word evidence, artificial intelligence, and international approaches – the 2018 Health Datapalooza covers a large breadth of relevant topics. This year’s steering committee is particularly interested in ideas that address policy and data implications and the impact of data innovations on patient outcomes and quality improvement.

The deadline for submission is Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. ET. Submissions will be reviewed by members of a selected review committee. The Call for Proposals is a supplement to the program committee content development. The 2018 Health Datapalooza will feature up to 42 concurrent sessions and over 150 speakers.
