We are looking to identify speakers for Health Informatics Pulse (HIP)! HIP is a venue, created by Aquilent, for Health Informatics practitioners in the greater DC Metro area to meet, share with and learn from colleagues dealing with similar challenges and issues. Our mission is to make it easier for healthcare organizations to use Health IT in a manner that improves patient and constituent outcomes and overall efficiencies by sharing success stories and ideas for innovations. Our first HIP event in June had more than 80 attendees!

Our next event will be held on August 26th from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at The Barking Dog in Bethesda, MD. This location has plenty of parking nearby and is Metro accessible.

Like our Health 2.0 STAT events, HIP will feature a rapid-fire series of five minute presentations, but HIP will focus on a deeper dive into innovation and technology. Speakers will be highlighting their experiences and lessons learned from using innovative technology around health and bioinformatics. The presentations will be followed by a panel style Q&A session.
If you are interested in speaking, please review details located in the FAQ below. Please forward this request for presenters to any colleagues that you think may have an interest in speaking at this event. To follow the event, you can visit our meetup page or you can follow us on twitter @DCHealth2_0

The only prerequisite is that your presentation be about the use of health informatics and approaches within the Health domain and that you keep your presentation to no more than 5 minutes.

How will potential speakers be selected?
