Global Digital Health Forum

Evolving Digital Health Landscape: Progress, Achievements, and Remaining Frontiers

December 4-6, 2017
Washington, D.C.
The Global Digital Health Network (The Network), in partnership with the Personal Connected Health Alliance (PCHAlliance), will once again present the now 4th Annual Global Digital Health Forum on December 4-6, 2017 at the JW Marriott Hotel in the heart of Washington, DC. With the exponential growth of the Forum, we will offer a three-day standalone experience. The event was previously co-located with the Connected Health Conference, which is moving to Boston this October.
The theme for this year’s Forum — The Evolving Digital Health Landscape: Progress, Achievements and Remaining Frontiers —  captures the spirit of progress made in the past several years to scale digital health systems and also encourages us to look critically at the continued need for innovation,as well as integration, to improve health outcomes in a changing political landscape.
PCHAlliance and The Network are planning a diverse event with engaging sessions to connect government stakeholders, digital health developers, researchers, donors, implementers and field experts from across the globe. The Forum will feature panel presentations, hands-on workshops, poster presentations and the interactive “Appy Hour”.  New this year will be TED-style talks, facilitated expert round-table discussions, and digital health labs.  Descriptions of the session types can be found here.


Reviewed by the Global Digital Health Network Advisory Board, abstract qualities they will be looking for include contribution of evidence to the digital health landscape, relevance to the field, and identification of innovative solutions enabling scale. You are encouraged to submit high-quality abstracts that demonstrate any of these critical success factors  in global digital health. If you are submitting more than one abstract, please ensure your abstracts are unique and clearly differentiated from one another. We encourage you to work with colleagues within your organizations to streamline your presentation to avoid duplicate organizational submissions. Deadline to submit is June 15, 2017 by 11:59 PM ET.
Presenters will be notified by August 31st.
We look forward to reviewing your submission!
