Pitch A Presentation

2019 Health Datapalooza

General Information


At the Health Datapalooza, attendees from both the public (governmental) and private sectors engage in meaningful discussions around the future of health data and its role in supporting healthcare transformation.


Presenters share the latest innovations and new methods for liberating data and creating actionable knowledge to drive health policy and practice. This year, the 10th anniversary of the Health Datapalooza, we are emphasizing collaborative problem solving in sessions and designing a curated program that results in new solutions and products to push policy and practice further.


So, we are inviting you to mix it up this year and send us your best ideas for well designed, novel and inventive sessions to one of our seven conference tracks - including a "wild card" track for your most out of the box idea! 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 2019 Health Datapalooza will cover a breadth of relevant topics.


There are two ways to think about your contribution: either a fully curated, 75 minute long session where you propose the content, speakers and format (be creative!) or a time limited rapid fire engaging presentation.


The deadline for submission is Monday, October 22, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. ET. Submissions will be reviewed by members of a selected review committee. The Pitch a Presentation is a supplement to the program committee content development. The 2019 Health Datapalooza will feature up to 42 concurrent sessions and over 150 speakers.

Rapid Fire Presentations will be featured in dedicated rapid fire sessions during the conference with time limits strictly enforced. Each session will have up to 10 presenters and each will have 5 minutes to enthrall the audience – using a few slides , a very brief video, or a technology demonstration -- followed by a Q&A with the audience. Rapid Fire Sessions will be organized by track and are optimized to highlight a much broader range of innovations.
