Harnessing the Power of Data to Improve Health

Featured Speakers: Aneesh Chopra, US CTO; Tim O’Reilly, O’Reilly Media; Matt Miller, NPR; Harvey Fineberg, IOM President; Todd Park, HHS CTO; and many others

The Health Data Initiative is a public-private collaboration that encourages innovators, entrepreneurs, startups, data geeks, community activists and policy makers to utilize health data to develop products and applications to raise awareness of health and health system performance and spark action to improve health.

On June 9th the Department of Health and Human Services and the Institute of Medicine will hold a second health data forum that will bring together over 500 people in person to showcase how health data can create tools and applications to support more informed decision-making by consumers/patients, health care systems, and community officials.

The innovators presenting are a great example of how data and technology can be harnessed in powerful ways to help provide better care and better health.

Over 40 companies will be featured. This event will be live streamed throughout the day with a series of major announcements (challenges issued, new university programs and partnerships, and new major activity in the startup world).
