Call for Speakers


The 2019 (Formerly Health IT Expo – #HITExpo) is just around the corner and to help us fill out the agenda, we have launched our Call for Speakers. We are really excited to continue the culture of practical innovation that we created at the inaugural conference. We are looking for members of the Health IT community to help us ensure we have the very best practical content for those who attend the conference!


Speaking at Health IT Expo will be a fantastic experience and opportunity to feature the large and small things healthcare IT professionals are doing to get more value out of their Health IT investments. If you work in Health IT and have valuable experiences, tips, tricks, or advice to share, please submit a proposal. We are looking for interesting stories and powerful case studies on a variety of topics that focus on practical insights into how you’ve: improved care, lowered costs, increased efficiencies, or increased revenue.


If you have ever thought to yourself “I think my experience with X could benefit my peers at other hospitals and health systems” – now is your chance!


As a no BS conference, we expect practical sessions with tangible, Implement Today! takeaways. We don’t want a session on “Healthcare Security is Important in Today’s Landscape.” That’s not useful to attendees. We do want sessions like “10 Specific Ways You Can Better Secure Your Hospital Today” or “One Health Analytic You Can Use Today to Reduce Hospital Readmissions” or “A 7 Step Plan for Hospitals When A HIPAA Breach Occurs” or “This One Tweak to Our EHR Saved Our Doctors 1 Minute Per Patient”.


We require every presentation provide a list of actionable takeaways which we’ll aggregate for attendees to take back to their hospitals and health systems so they can take action and improve their HIT use immediately.


Here is a general outline of the type of speakers we are looking for:

  • Practical advice on how to improve care, lower costs, increase efficiencies, or increase revenue
  • Passionate about sharing knowledge with others
  • First-hand experience with the subject matter
  • Able to share the ROI or benefits that resulted from the new program, technology, solution, or process
  • Creative, dynamic presenters

Below are the five main themes for Healthcare IT Expo 2018:

  • Security and Privacy
  • Analytics
  • Communication and Patient Engagement
  • IT Dev Ops
  • Operational Alignment and Support

To submit a proposal, just fill out this short Call for Speakers form. All submissions will be reviewed by the Content Committee and those chosen will be contacted via email.


Thank you and we look forward to a great speaker lineup at 2019!
