For a nation and a world that needs the best and boldest minds of our time to give their energy to making health care available, effective, and affordable for all people, ViVE is a breath of fresh air.

The brainchild of two leading organizations in digital health and innovation, ViVE merges the leadership of CHIME and the digital marketplace of HLTH to create a technology event focused on the business of transformation in healthcare. The event is designed to spark dialogue, creativity, and collaboration across sectors to drive the current revolution in digital health to its best outcomes for patients from all walks of life.

The inaugural ViVE event will take place March 6-9, 2022 in Miami Beach, launching with significant support from over 300 sponsors and event supporters, including title sponsors Allscripts, Amazon Web Services, athenahealth, AT&T Business, Baldrige Foundation, Canon Medical, Cerner, Clearsense, Dell Technologies, Divurgent, DrFirst, ELLKAY, EY, Hyland Healthcare, IBM Watson Health, InterSystems, Mediant Health Resources, MEDICOMP Systems, Medigate, Nordic, Olive, Optimum Healthcare IT, Philips, Sirius Healthcare, and Tegria.

“Healthcare is standing on the threshold of advances in technology that are going to make science fiction into reality,” said Tanya Townsend, CHIME Board Chair, System VP and CIO, LCMC Health. “We are hearing from leaders across all healthcare sectors that ViVE is exactly the kind of event that we need; ViVE will foster the collaboration that will move us to a completely new era in digital health.”

“HLTH has always strived to bring together a diverse mix of thought leaders with outside-the-box perspectives on the most pressing topics impacting our industry, and ViVE will continue this mission,” said Jody Tropeano, Head of Content, HLTH. “Our agenda will challenge attendees to think differently and embrace change, and hopefully have some fun doing it.”
