Accelerate Health, the innovation hub of HIMSS, presents a two-day healthcare innovation forum that examines unconventional ideas, technologies and investments making waves in traditional care delivery systems. Hear from health innovation leaders as they share how they are embracing disruption and challenging the status quo, and get a peek inside the mind of investors as they share their health information and technology market projections and portfolio plans. 


  • Disruption: We’ll take a full scan of the state of digital health disruptors who are shaking up traditional healthcare interactions, how healthcare organizations are responding, and what this means for the hospital tech stack of tomorrow. Plus, get up close and personal with real-use cases on groundbreaking healthcare innovations.
  • Partnerships & Emerging Collaborations: Hear deal-making and innovation insights from startups, VCs and corporate investors. We’ll explore what it takes to identify, design and grow a good strategic investment, and how both sides measure success.
  • Data Evolution: From interoperability challenges to data misinformation, to value-based care to consumer data ownership, we’ll examine major sticking points in unlocking the full potential of care.  
  • Networking: Get to know the Accelerate Health community during designated networking breaks throughout the program.

This optional specialty program is available to all, with or without full conference registration.
