Health Innovation Week Comes to D.C.

This week marks Washington, D.C. Health Innovation Week, featuring events attended and hosted by entrepreneurs, technologists, physicians, nurses, consumers and patients from across civil society and government.

Activities for the week include today’s HealthCampDC, an un-conference about “Vitality Through Data”, and Saturday’s Health 2.0 developer challenge code-a-thon. But the week’s main event takes place tomorrow, Thursday, June 9th , when the Institute of Medicine and Department of Health and Human Services will host the second annual Health Data Initiative Forum, which aims to enable individuals and communities to make more informed decisions about their health by helping to create the right conditions for increasingly active and successful innovation around health data. The forum will include a number of fast-paced demonstrations that present a range of tools and applications developed using health data, a series of discussion, and a data and apps exposition where participants can learn more about available data and identify opportunities to expand upon current efforts.

Several individuals from Edelman will be in attendance covering the events live or screening them from satellite meet-ups. Please follow us below to stay up-to-date.
