HDAA Town hall April 2022Since its birth in 2001, the Healthcare Data & Analytics Association has been the place to collaborate with industry professionals, ask and answer questions, share lessons learned, get first hand validation of vendors' claims, and accelerate adoption of data and analytics to produce better healthcare outcomes and cost improvements for your healthcare system.

Membership is free to employees of healthcare systems and providers, insurance companies, public health groups, government healthcare agencies, and to students pursuing a healthcare analytics career.
