Accelerating Digital Health Innovation

About HCSFBay

HealthCamp SFBay is a HealthCamp.

HealthCamp is a national movement led by volunteers focused on putting social media, open source and the best of the Internet, Mobile Web and process innovation to work for better health care and health technology.

It is a user-organized “un–conference” movement that brings consumers, health providers, health industry experts and technology professionals together for a one day event to exchange ideas informally, locally, openly. 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. If you have questions, please contact mconnary{at}gmail {dot} com.
