To help people make health and wellness an effortless part of daily life.

Guiding Principles
We believe:

  • Health is more than healthcare. Emphasis on wellness has shifted the focus from preventing and treating diseases to living healthier, richer lives.
  • People should be empowered to take responsibility for their own health and wellness. Recent technology advances and market dynamics have set the stage for an overdue transformation -- creating a new approach, where people have the tools and information needed to take charge and make healthier personal choices.
  • Personal connected health is about people, not devices. Technology is useful only when it is integrated effectively into people’s daily lives.
  • It won’t happen tomorrow unless we all work together today.  People, industry and government must embrace health as a shared objective and adjust their goals, standards and practices accordingly.

About us

Company details

The Personal Connected Health Alliance (PCHAlliance) aims to make health and wellness an effortless part of daily life. The PCHAlliance, a non-profit organization formed by HIMSS, believes that health is personal and extends beyond healthcare. The PCHAlliance mobilizes a coalition of stakeholders to realize the full potential of personal connected health. 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.
To support its vision, the 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 PCHAlliance publishes and promotes the global adoption of the Continua Design Guidelines, an open framework for user-friendly, interoperable health data exchange in personal connected health. The Continua Design Guidelines are recognized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), an agency of the United Nations, as the international standard for safe, secure, and reliable exchange of data to and from personal health devices. Continua is a major initiative within the PCHAlliance focused on developing an eco-system of open plug-and-play interoperable personal connected health devices and services which are validated in accordance with the Continua certification program.  
The PCHAlliance accelerates technical, business, policy and social strategies necessary to advance personal connected health through its flagship key initiatives, including the Academy for Healthy Longevity, to promote lifelong health and wellness.
