Many times, Houston HIMSS has one presenter for our monthly Lunch and Learns (L&L). This month, we will hear presentations from 6 different innovative companies with new solutions that are associated with our own TMCx.

We will start out the session with comments from TMCx Advisors who are part of the Houston HIMSS Chapter Leadership committee. These individuals that make up the Texas Medical Center (TMC) Innovation Institute Advisor Network are an integral piece in the success of the overall program by providing strategic and tactical guidance to our innovation community. Advisors represent various fields and provide a range of expertise from entrepreneurship, investor, clinical, technical, legal guidance and more.

Then we will hear short and concise presentations from 6 different companies that are or have been associated with the TMCx program. Located in the TMC Innovation Institute, these startup companies with share information about their solutions and provide ROI case studies regarding their innovation.

In the end, each L&L attendee will be asked to rank the presentations based on perceived value to the healthcare ecosystem and Houston HIMSS will award the top three innovative vendors with an award of excellence.

This is one L&L session that you don’t want to miss. Come and learn about new and innovative technologies that can help your organization reduce costs, improve quality and provide better overall outcomes.
