Actionable Intelligence Network presents the Health Data Unbound Virtual Conference, an on-demand event. Registrants will receive on-demand access to the video recordings of all conference sessions. For more information and to register, please view our Registration/Pricing page.

Conference Themes

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 has 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.
