The Personal Connected Health Alliance (PCHAlliance), a non-profit organization formed by HIMSS, aims to make health and wellness an effortless part of daily life. The Alliance believes that health is personal and extends beyond healthcare. PCHAlliance members are a vibrant ecosystem of technology and life sciences industry icons and innovative, early stage companies along with governments, academic institutions, and associations from around the world. PCHAlliance convenes the global personal connected health community at the annual Connected Health Conference, the premier international event for the exchange of research, evidence, ideas, innovations and opportunities in personal connected health. The Alliance publishes and promotes adoption of the Continua Design Guidelines, which are recognized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) as the international standard for safe, secure, and reliable exchange of data to and from personal health devices. The PCHAlliance accelerates technical, business, policy and social strategies necessary to advance personal connected health through its flagship Academy for Healthy Longevity to promote lifelong health and wellness.

PCHAlliance is driving advancements in mobile and communications technologies, and the growing use of new devices, health trackers and apps by consumers and healthcare providers. No longer is a doctor's visit the only way to check up on your health. In PCHAlliance’s vision for healthcare, consumers can use readily available technologies to access their personal health data, receive targeted health and wellness education, consult with healthcare providers and gain support from friends and family to improve their health.
