Explore Opportunities and Trends at Health Datapalooza
Apr 28, 2014, 8:00 AM, Posted by Paul Tarini
We’re a little over a month away from the 2014 Health Datapalooza (HDP) conference. For those of you who don’t know, HDP—an event of the Health Data Consortium, which RWJF supports—is a great venue to explore the opportunities and trends of open health data.
Trying to get a firm understanding of this space can be challenging, but HDP brings it all together. The conference has tracks focusing on the use of open data by businesses and consumers, in community and clinical settings, and for research purposes.
But the bigger opportunity I have seen is the chance to intersect and interact with people who are working in a variety of areas—that’s when the learning and networking opportunities get really powerful.
This year, I’m looking to see where data is being used to make connections across health care, public health and human services and drive integration of those different systems and help restructure them. If you have an interest in that space, please let me know by commenting below.
