While there have been many events on interoperability and data sharing, what’s unique here is our focus on the BUSINESS rationale for health data sharing.

  • The bases of competition in healthcare are shifting to competing on quality, cost, and patient experience. This shift creates a business imperative to share information, not to hoard it.
  • Hoarding data is not only bad for business but can be catastrophic in a crisis.
  • Data of all kinds have an important role in public health, logistics management, and the healthcare supply chain.
  • The patient’s role is critical in coordinating their own care, testing, results reporting and care management

The Health Data Unbound Virtual Conference will focus on the emergent need for interoperability of all kinds, implementation of appropriate sharing of patient information, high priority use cases, value propositions, companies with enabling technologies, business models and strategies.

Through our state-of-the-art virtual event platform, conference participants will be able to pose questions to the speakers and to network with other attendees. The event will be live and attendees will have access to recorded presentations for 60 days after the conclusion of the Summit.
