Conferences for all industries took a hit during the COVID-19 pandemic. But despite the setbacks, event organizers have continued announcing your favorite digital health conferences for 2022. Most events are in-person, with many offering options to attend online.
Whether in person or digital, conferences are one of the best ways to learn about new developments and innovations in digital health. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of healthcare IT and digital health conferences. We’ve listed events chronologically with links and short descriptions for easy planning.
2022 healthcare IT & digital health conferences
This aims to be the most comprehensive list of 2022 digital health conferences. Of course, all aspects of healthcare are gradually being digitized, so some of these events aren’t explicitly focused on technology and healthcare IT. Most events listed here are based in the United States, although you’ll find several that take place in London.
In this list of digital health conferences, you’ll find trade shows, educational events, thought leadership summits, business events, networking gatherings, and everything in between. The connecting thread is a focus on healthcare IT, innovation, technology, and digital health.
