Free Passes for Patients to Attend in Boston

UPDATE: Thanks to all the patients who requested free passes.  We can’t wait to have you join us at  We’ve had to close the form to handle all the logistics for attendees.


Do health IT conference include patients?


Turns out that the sad answer to that question is most of them don’t.  That’s not to say that a conference must have patients to be good.  However, it just seems wrong for a conference about topics that impact patients would not try hard to include the patient voice in their conference.


More importantly, a healthcare conference that includes patients is a better conference.


At least this is what we believe at  We value having patients in attendance at the conference.  They remind us of the importance of what we do in health IT.  They remind us why we need to be careful in how we implement technology solutions in healthcare because it impacts real peoples’ lives.  They open up new windows to innovations that help both patients and providers.  The call out BS when it’s being shared.  Patients make a health IT conference better.


While still has much work to do to include patients even more fully in the conference, we’re excited to have Danielle Collins sharing her patient story as the first keynote of the conference.  She’s a powerful example of how patients working together with health IT companies can impact the lives of so many patients for good.


We’re also happy to announce that we’re planning to give out at least 25 free full conference passes to patients who can represent the patient voice at the conference July 31-August 2, 2019 in Boston, MA.


In order to ensure the free passes go to patients who are coming to the conference as patients, we’ve created this really simple form to request a free patient pass.  We don’t need to know your patient history.  We just want to make sure you’re truly coming to represent the patient voice at the conference so we can include as many patients as possible.


Unfortunately, the free pass to the conference doesn’t include travel and lodging.  However, the registration does include full breakfast and lunch on Thursday and Friday and multiple evening parties.  We’re hoping as we grow the event that we’ll be able to cover travel and lodging for patients at future events.
