As part of the HHS Health Data Initiative, The Health Datapalooza will be held this year on June 5th and 6th in Washington, DC. This event is being put on by the Health Data Consortium, a group of organizations that joined together with the aims of promoting new data, making existing data more accessible by consumers and developers, and encouraging the development of products and services that improve health and health care. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is a member of the Consortium.
More information on this event, including how to register to attend or submit an application to present, can be found at hdiforum.org.
The CMS Innovation Center is helping plan one session of this two-day event. An ACO “deep dive” will demonstrate how Accountable Care Organizations can make effective use of claims data through innovative software services and analytics. Surgeon and author Atul Gwande will be leading a discussion between the audience and a diverse set of stakeholders from data analysts to a number of the Pioneer ACOs.
HDI Forum III: The Health Datapalooza promises to bring together a diverse group of data experts, technology developers, entrepreneurs, policy makers, health care system leaders, CIOs, CTOs, and community advocates to support innovative applications of health and health care data.
The Forum will feature keynote addresses, an Apps Expo, demonstrations of new, cutting-edge apps, and thought-provoking panel discussions. There will also be plenty of time for networking and one-on-one interaction.
