The main events of HCESC are the yearly Health Data Analytics Summit and the Health Care Engineering Systems Symposium.

The Health Data Analytics Summits focus on the convergence of AI, Big Data, and technology that may impact healthcare of the future. We host speakers and panelists from Northwestern University, University of Chicago, University of Illinois, Microsoft, IBM, Carle Hospital, and OSF Healthcare. The cancellation of the 2020 summit led to the creation of the COVID-19 Virtual Summit, where we will be focusing on the perspective of healthcare decision makers and data scientists.

The symposium brought together more than 150 participants, including physicians, life scientists, engineers, biomedical companies, and investors. Research projects were presented by researchers from the University of Illinois, along with clinical presentations provided by the OSF HealthCare System Leadership. Participants were able to network and strike research alliances.
