Get Connected: Microsoft Connected Health Conference–May 19 & 20

Head Have you ever thought about visiting the Microsoft campus in Redmond, Washington?  If so, there are two opportunities coming up in the months ahead that may be of interest to healthcare executives, clinicians, health solutions software developers, and others with a passion for IT and health.  One of those opportunities is the annual Microsoft Health Users Group meeting that takes place in August.  More about that in a later post.  The more immediate opportunity is our annual Connected Health Conference that is hosted by Microsoft’s Health Solutions Group.

The Connected Health Conference is officially held in Bellevue, Washington, at the Meydenbauer Center.  That’s because the conference has grown too large to be held on our corporate campus.  Never-the-less, you’ll be close enough to Redmond to make a visit and there are always side meetings and other activities that do take place here on campus.

So, what can you expect at the third annual Connected Health Conference?  The event takes place May 19 and 20.  And here are just a few of the highlights:


The conference will showcase technologies that are transforming healthcare delivery and identify ways for you to become a catalyst for change in healthcare.

    I am looking for information on the 2012 Microsoft Connected Health Conference? Is there going to be one this year?

    Thanks for writing.  The Connected Health Conference series was produced by the Microsoft division (Health Solutions Group) that is now part of Caradigm – a joint venture between Microsoft and GE Healthcare.  Therefore, although Microsoft will not be continuing the Connected Health Conference, it is quite possible that Caradigm will have a conference of some kind.  For more information, see .
