Registration is now open for the fourth annual Global Digital Health Forum (December 4-6, 2017), a premier gathering for digital health professionals from around the world.

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.

Hosted by the Global Digital Health Network and Personal Connected Health Alliance, the diverse event will feature 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.

“We are inspired by the level of passion, dedication, and engagement we see from Forum participants,” says Heidi Good Boncana, co-chair of the Global Digital Health Network and senior program officer at the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs. “This year’s Forum will highlight the most exciting trends in digital health and, as in past years, serve as a gathering place for a dynamic community to learn, share, and inspire.”
