This is the most important week for healthcare in Washington, D.C. — a week of events that unite the most diverse and connected group of leaders talking about the most important issues in medicine.

It has started with Health Datapalooza, a comprehensive deep drive into the power and availability of healthcare data. The week ends with MedCity ENGAGE, MedCityNews.com’s summit on innovations in patient engagement and healthcare delivery on Wednesday and Thursday at the Westin City Center.

So we begin with data and conclude hearing from implementers who will apply it. I want to unite the two groups. So if you’re at Health Datapalooza, keep reading.

Anyone attending Health Datapalooza can come to ENGAGE, show their ticket and get 50 percent off the $1,000 on-site rate.

It’s critical that healthcare hears not only what data is available and how the next generation of leaders will push it into apps and EMRs. Healthcare innovators need to hear what’s happening now and next: How health insurance companies, major health systems, policymakers, Big Pharma and other leaders are moving ahead with plans to leverage data, engage patients and get their perspectives on what will be improved next when it comes to medical homes, accountable care organizations and other unique approaches to healthcare delivery. Those are the kinds of leaders at ENGAGE: from the leaders of Mayo Clinic, Children’s Mercy Hospital and Clinics, and Cleveland Clinic to UnitedHealth and Humana to leaders from Veteran’s Affairs, ONC and members of Congress.

We’re hearing about the data, so now hear what people are doing with it. If you’re in town for Health Datapalooza, complete the story of healthcare innovation and data by coming to ENGAGE.
