Health Innovators unconference is designed to provide a creative environment to bring together diverse groups of people who otherwise might not meet at traditional health or medical events. Participants themselves provide the content, with break-out sessions they develop themselves and plug into a schedule grid on the day of the event. Anyone can present and host a session in nearly any format. The agenda for the evening grows organically as the conversations and ideas develop. Discussions cover topics such as participatory healthcare, the use of social media in healthcare, mHealth and other technological advances. Multiple sessions run in parallel. Participants will hear and network with some of the extraordinary and innovative people transforming health care.
This event is for people who work in the Healthcare field (Hospitals, Pharma, Biotechnology, Med Tech) who:
- Have a problem you are trying to solve in Healthcare but don’t know how to solve the problem.
- Want to change something in Healthcare and needs other healthcare professionals input.
- Have an idea and want to get it validated by other.
- Want to teach other about your expertise.

An unconference is a participant-driven meeting. Typically at an unconference, the agenda is created by the attendees at the beginning of the meeting. Anyone who wants to initiate a discussion on a topic can claim a space. Unconferences typically feature open discussions rather than having a single speaker at the front of the room giving a talk.
