Join us to learn, collaborate, and impact healthcare

The 2018 DHIT Summit will convene internationally recognized thought leaders and key stakeholders from the healthcare ecosystem to dig deep into how Digital Health can pervasively be used to transform health. This exciting new annual impact event is uniquely designed to focus on demand blueprinting (not solutioning) and include post-event collaboration with the goal of creating a working model of care that will bring the future of health into real-world settings to produce measureable impact. Our expert panels and workshops will focus on three key transformative topics through the lens of Digital Health, including Building Healthy Communities, Health Engagement, and Precision Health.

The Difference

This is a demand focused, impact oriented event, not a conference. Here’s the difference:


Standard Conference:
Focuses on existing solutions and discussing the lessons learned from trying to make them work.

Our Model:
Focuses on the demand side to blueprint the critical, unmet needs to guide the development of highly effective solutions.


Standard Conference:
Collaboration is non-existent, as the attendees listen to the speakers and then leave with notes.

Our Model:
Is fundamentally based on collaboration, where the entire ecosystem of stakeholders is engaged and leveraged.


Standard Conference:
There is no measurable impact, as the post-event activities simply include planning the next conference.

Our Model:
Involves post-event collaboration to test and validate solutions in real-world environments against the demand blueprint.
