The "Best of the Best" Applications
Beginning with more than 200 submissions to the Virtual Audition process, more than 50 organizations were selected by a panel of judges to present during the Health Datapalooza. Seventeen organizations deemed to have the top applications presented their products during the morning plenary sessions.
