Signature Events

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

The Health Data Analytics Summits focuses on the convergence of AI, Big Data, and technology that may impact health care 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 heard from health care decision makers and data scientists.

The Health Care Engineering Systems Symposium brings together more than 150 participants, including physicians, life scientists, engineers, biomedical companies, and investors to discuss and learn about health care engineering. Projects are presented by researchers from the University of Illinois, along with clinical presentations provided by the OSF HealthCare System Leadership. Participants are able to network and strike research alliances.
