Transforming Communities With Data – Healthy Communities Data Summit 2014


This April, Health 2.0 and the Foundation for Healthcare Innovation are partnering together for the 2nd Annual Healthy Communities Data Summit (HCDS) at the UCLA Grand Horizons Ballroom. Transforming health at a community level is no easy task, but this event will facilitate the conversations needed to initiate and inspire change by bringing together local policymakers, clinicians, innovators, and patients to discuss inspired uses of health data, lessons learned, emerging trends, and more.

If you are passionate about innovations that improve patient access, best data practices, creating awareness of health issues amongst key stakeholders, and learning about new projects and datasets, then you should join us in LA April 3rd!

In addition to compelling keynotes and panel discussions, there will be LIVE demos and the announcement of many brand new datasets, tools, and state-level projects. Other agenda highlights include:

  • Open Health Data Trends and Applications: Current Landscape, Opportunities, and Best Practices
  • Data Analytics to Health Communities: Closing the Loop
