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.

We want to break the silos that make it so hard for true change to happen, so CHXD Is designed to foster connection across the health ecosystem, including payer, provider, pharma, government, health tech, and non-profit.

Connect online via the CHXD online community

To make it easier for you to find and connect with those like-minded individuals, we have built a CHXD online community. This community can be accessed from your computer or your mobile phone. The CHXD online community is free and open to anyone who is committed to improving the health experience.

Join the CHXD Online Community


Members come together through:

  • Online: CHXD Community
  • 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.
