Members of the Center for Health Experience Design have the valuable opportunity to connect and collaborate with others who share their interest in and passion for specific interest areas. These "Affinity Groups" will bring organizations together from across the ecosystem, including: payer, provider, pharma, government, health tech, and non-profit.
Members come together for any of the affinity groups through:
- Online: CHXD Community with Affinity Groups
- Events: Quarterly Workshops, Webinars, and more
- Networking: Monthly Calls, Breakouts at HIMSS, Health 2.0, and SXSW Health
- Projects: Sponsored Collaborations with multiple stakeholders
Through the Center, members work together to move the industry by sharing insights and trends, bouncing ideas off of and solicit support from other affinity group members, and working on research projects and design and innovation initiatives that express a collective vision for the future.
