Experience an unbiased, strategic digital healthcare perspective

Healthcare and life science leaders sit on the precipice of both rapid scientific advancement and business model uncertainty. As they look to respond to supply chain disruption, inflation, novel competition, clinician burnout and ongoing pandemic response, healthcare and life science leaders must accelerate digitalization efforts that will enable intelligent engagement in their organizations and with their customers and patients.

Whether you’re looking to validate your strategy, enhance your professional network or simply reconnect with peers face-to-face, the  Gartner IT Symposium/Xpo™ 2023 conference is the premier conference to attend for CIOs and IT executives in healthcare and life sciences tasked with leading a digital-first organization.

Program Highlight: Throughout the conference, you can participate in healthcare and life science-aligned sessions, designed to contextualize the most relevant IT trends explored in broader conference sessions. In addition, you'll benefit from formal and informal opportunities to network with other technology leaders inside, and outside, the healthcare and life sciences' industries - all providing you the insights and connections you need most.
