Have you ever stopped to think about the data that drives the activity tracker you use, the health app you rely on, or the health information you find online? Most of us don’t think about “health data” on a daily basis, but it’s really pretty powerful, and what you see now is just the beginning.
The 2015 Health Datapalooza (#hdpalooza), taking place May 31 to June 3 in Washington, D.C., will provide an exciting glimpse of what’s happening and what’s ahead in the world of health data.  Many of the themes this year are focused on data-powered ways to improve services and quality of care, offer more choices, and improve access to information for health care providers and consumers, including one’s own medical information.
The Health Datapalooza began as a small conversation about how HHS could launch its Health Data Initiative (located at HealthData.gov today).  In its sixth year, it’s now a key conference, bringing together over 2,000 data experts, technology developers, entrepreneurs, policy makers, health care system leaders and community advocates.
