HOUSTON, April 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthcare Innovators Professional Society (HIPS), the first-of-its-kind
By fostering peer-to-peer networking and administering support services among top hospital thought leaders, HIPS seeks to drive positive change and provide a catalyst for innovation across the healthcare landscape. The organization's mission is to serve, support and connect innovation leaders from hospitals and healthcare innovation organizations across the country.
"We are honored to have these thought leaders on our council," said Dr. Toby Hamilton, executive director of HIPS. "Because of their unique background and experiences, they will all be great assets to HIPS as we work to push the boundaries of healthcare transformation in a professionally coordinated support effort."
Hamilton added that HIPS was formed because there is currently no common framework, structure or tools for chief innovation and chief strategy officers serving in hospital systems across the country.
"These thought leaders are responsible for managing the process of innovation and change management within the hospital system," he said. "Given their unique positions, they would benefit from peer-to-peer interaction and access to content and discussion specifically tailored to their roles."
In addition to providing these executives with a support system and a peer sounding board, HIPS will offer its councilors case studies, councilor-developed innovations and HIPS-specific blog content developed for and shared only with the HIPS community. Other benefits include access to leading healthcare incubators and accelerators as well as a diverse network of capital providers.
HIPS will hold its first annual conference for its councilors in October 2018 at the Texas Medical Center Innovation Institute in Houston.
