Special Events

Not your typical stodgy conference, Health 2.0 brings a fresh approach as the leader in the space—bringing together the best minds, compelling panels, discussions and product demonstrations. Here are some of our special events happening during our 12th annual conference.

Join us at any one of these special events:

Provider Symposium - 9:30am - 4:00pm, September 16th

To truly drive change in health care, innovation needs to occur at both a systemic level as well as in the day-to-day workflow of clinical care. Health 2.0’s Provider Symposium unites these worlds in a discussion around the latest technological innovations designed to improve the clinical experience for physicians and the patient care.

By gathering the right people, technologies, and systems into a single room, the Provider Symposium will provide a meaningful dialogue anchored by case studies from forward-thinking institutions like UCSF, Mount Sinai, Stanford Med, and Cedars Sinai. To learn more about this symposium go here.

Macadamian Design Workshop: Smart Health Analytics for Improved Outcomes - 9:30am - 4:00pm, September 16th

AI, predictive analytics, sensors, and devices - all of these individually and together are very powerful tools in healthcare. BUT how can we use this ecosystem of assets so they truly become "smart" health tools that show improved clinical and patient outcomes - while ensuring privacy and security? Key takeaways:

  • Identifying 'meaningful' data that can help prove outcomes
  • Framework to ensure the health data is accurate, while also easily consumed and understood by organizations (including your customers)
  • Critical factors on security and privacy when gathering and using data
  • Techniques to integrate third generation data with your patient data to drive behavioral change and improved patient outcomes.
