Converge2Xcelerate (#ConV2X) challenges audiences to catalyze and change healthcare using blockchain technology, telehealth, and converging technologies to build consensus for new healthcare solutions and reduces costs for health systems and health consumers. Top world authorities share business cases, pilots, and scaled use, to demonstrate the impact of new and vetted solutions to address challenges in healthcare.
The conference cuts straight to the practicality of initiatives using the HBS Case Method with panelists. Where possible, the bottom line financial impact of initiatives is shared along with “how to” guidance for replicating similar outcomes.
Each year, a current and topical theme is selected to find solutions to current challenges in healthcare and build consensus and understanding for them. This year #ConV2X 2019 presents “Proving Market Value with Pragmatic Innovation in Healthcare.”
The conference is collegiate in essence. No titles or corporate affiliations are featured on badges. This encourages all participants at all levels to share relevant experiences with new or known community members.
Professionally moderated Debates are a conference staple, as top authorities elucidate arguments, pro and con, addressing controversial issues and topics. The Innovation Ignition Competition brings you tomorrow’s investment opportunities with startups competing for mind share and exposure, to VCs, and leading tech labs.
#ConV2X welcomes all stakeholders in the ecosystem to facilitate dialogue, build alliances, educate, and bolster pioneering efforts in industry.
We are excited to share the ATA has endorsed the peer reveiw journals Telehealth and Medicine Today and Blockhain in Healthcare Today.
“Blockchain is a key driving force behind maintaining accurate, actionable healthcare data – and is an important component of where we’re headed in telehealth. The ATA is delighted to collaborate with Partners in Digital Health, as the benefits of blockchain technology are critical to our members’ success in the future,” stated Ann Mond Johnson, CEO, ATA.
The academic portfolio’s editor-in-chief, John Halmaka, MD, International Healthcare Innovation Professor, Harvard Medical School, added “We are happy to collaborate with the ATA to catalyze local and global initiatives and use cases to move health, delivery, and education forward, with telehealth and blockchain technology.”
“Pushing the confines of pragmatic healthcare innovation and academic publication practices, these journals fill gaps with editorial missions poised for the next frontier in health and care around the world,” stated Tory Cenaj, Founder, Partners in Digital Health.

We invite to you to submit a manuscript to the first international peer review journal dedicated to blockchain and converging technologies in healthcare, Blockchain in Healthcare Today (BHTY).
Averaging three article downloads per hour and over 20,000 total downloads from 65 countries since its launch in March 2018, BHTY is the preeminent open-access international peer-review journal for strategic thought leaders, new-era practitioners, and future society stakeholders engaged in blockchain technology and converging innovations in healthcare. The journal is published on a continuous basis in order to accelerate sharing of rigorously vetted theoretical and experiential knowledge required for a growth sector.
Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts, use cases, unpublished research, and defensible opinions on a broad spectrum of topics considered relevant to blockchain and converging technologies in healthcare, such as, for example:
- NEW BUSINESS MODELS: Future Society, future economy, new business models, incentive models, Tokenomics, cashless economy, Internet of value, ecosystem structure and dynamics, scalability, sustainability
- BLOCKCHAIN TRIAD: the interplay of disintermediated business models, decentralized operations they require, and technology strategy to support both
- USE CASES: use case discovery frameworks, use case roadmaps, key learnings from successful and unsuccessful experiences
- SPECIAL REPORTS: These Special Reports may include market consensus statements, guidelines, statements from a reputable task force or work group, or recommendations. Special Reports are neither reviews nor original reports of primary research.
- NEW MODELS OF TRUST: Privacy, ethics, confidentiality, governance, access control, provenance, consensus
- THEORY: game theory, psychology, consensus models, miner strategies
- USER EXPERIENCE: market and user segmentation, generational demographics, consumerization of healthcare, behavioral considerations, user centered design, adoption drivers and barriers, Return-on-Adoption
- HEALTH IT: Electronic Health Records, Health Information Exchange, claim adjudication, clinical trials, provenance, supply chain, ePedigree, medical devices, Internet of Things (IoT), wearables, sensors, smart medical home
- LEGAL & REGULATORY: health and wellness consumer protection, health and wellness Tokenomics trading, fraud, liability, indemnification
- TECHNOLOGY: On-Chain – Off-Chain solution architecture, DApps, identity management, consensus protocols, smart contracts, security, cryptography, tokens, interoperability, standards, scalability, business continuity
- EDUCATION: the fundamentals, innovation management, managing digital transformation, future workforce
Authors can include relevant software code and data in the peer review process by uploading it to BHTY’s Code Ocean computational reproducibility workflow; and strengthen the validity, attribution, and trust-based reputation of their work with BHTY’s ARTiFACTS.ai service option, a purpose built blockchain-enabled platform for academic and scientific research and development.
A no-deadline, continuous, two-week submission-to-decision turnaround by world-class peer-review board includes constructive commentary and offers the opportunity for authors to strengthen their work.

The event's single objective was to accelerate healthcare's pragmatic adoption of new technologies by informing, inspiring, and debating, the role and value of technology innovation to health systems, healthcare workforce, and patients around the world.
#ConV2X provided an opportunity to share theoretical and pragmatic, experiential knowledge, and converge, as equal shareholders in society's future.

Blockchain in Healthcare Today has partnered with Code Ocean. Authors can now transparently share code associated with their research, with readers.
Code Ocean, is a cloud based computational reproducibility platform, where researchers, engineers, developers, and scientists can upload code and data in any open source programming language and link working code in a computational environment within an article. The journal encourages authors and readers to share articles to broaden the sector's knowledge base. The initiative will also assist in reducing negative results, and ideally, accelerate time to market.
The Code Ocean platform can also be used to include an executable copy of an author's code for the peer review process.
Partners in Digital Health and Code Ocean will work towards the integration of Code Ocean into the journal submission and peer review workflow, where code and data is used. Authors will upload their code and data, within a cloud based computational environment, to create an executable “compute capsule” that can reproduce their results. A compute capsule will get a DOI and be embedded within the article upon the manuscript’s publication, enabling readers to view and verify the article’s results. Authors can upload and submit code and data associated with their article. Users can execute the code, view results, and modify the code to see how results change.
Partners in Digital Health joins distinguished Code Ocean publishing partners De Gruyter, Cambridge University Press, Taylor & Francis, and BMJ Publishing Group.
