Healthcare and IT
Marketing Conference



The Healthcare and IT Marketing Conference (HITMC) is organized by Healthcare Scene is a network of influential Healthcare IT blogs, health IT career resources, and conferences that cover everything from EHR to mobile health. Our goal for the conference is to provide a unique event for healthcare and IT marketers and PR professionals to learn about the latest trends in marketing and PR from both inside and outside of healthcare.


After an extremely successful first ever Healthcare and IT Marketing conference in 2014, we started to realize that HITMC really stood for Healthcare IT Marketing Community as opposed to Conference. Each year we hold our annual HITMC conference, but we also host smaller meetups and events throughout the year that bring together an amazing community of people. You can learn more about the healthcare marketing community on along with finding great content, webinars, and the monthly #HITMC Twitter chat. We’re excited by the high caliber of people involved in the community. Marketing to doctors, practice managers, patients, and hospital executives is a unique challenge, but with the right strategy you can break down the barriers and get your story heard.


Along with the amazing content and sponsors of the event, we’ve learned that there is a lot more to the conference than just education. We really bring together the Healthcare and IT Marketing community in a way that had never been done before. Many of the attendees love having a community of like minded professionals in the same room where they can talk about their related efforts to reach doctors, hospitals, and patients.
