6th Annual Health Technology Conference from CAHO ! Connecting Healthcare & Technology


CAHOTECH offers a unique platform for healthcare providers to learn about disruptive technological advancements and futuristic trends. The event focuses on scalable technology solutions to make modern healthcare accessible, available, efficient and affordable to all. 

Over the years, CAHOTECH has connected hundreds of technology companies to thousands of healthcare organizations, introduced our healthcare partners to newer methods and technology to improve their quality and efficiency of care, and highlighted the best practices in making such purchases – ensuring that there is information sharing among consumers of healthcare technology in a fast-evolving market that is hard to keep track of.

Since 2020, the pandemic has transformed the event into a virtual event. We believe that such a transformation, though with its own flaws, also allows more people to attend the sessions with convenience and comfort. We are also able to get a larger base of speakers and ideas and this transformation into a virtual event is turning out to be a blessing in disguise.

2021 Edition

CAHOTECH 2021 is a 5 days virtual event, starting with the PitchFest and Hospital Innovations Showcase on 13th and 14th August respectively. The 3 days main conference sessions (brochure enclosed) will be from 3 pm to 7 pm on the following themes:
