Novation, the leading health care expertise, analytics and contracting company for the more than 100,000 members of VHA Inc., UHC, Children’s Hospital Association and Provista, LLC, today announced that it will be hosting its annual Innovative Technology Expo on September 10, 2014, at the Irving Convention Center, Las Colinas.
The Novation Innovative Technology Expo features the latest in innovative health care technologies that improve patient outcomes as well as improve patient or health care worker safety. It’s an opportunity for medical technology suppliers of all sizes to gain direct feedback about the use of their innovative products from key hospital member clinical experts and health care providers.
“Both hospital clinicians and suppliers have told us that the Innovative Technology Expo is a unique industry experience as it provides an opportunity for meaningful conversations and hands-on demonstrations between well-informed health care decision makers and product experts,” said Debbie Archer director, procurement and innovative technology, Novation. “Based on the success of last year’s Expo, with 85 suppliers demonstrating more than 100 products, this year’s event is sure to be well attended.”
The deadline for suppliers to register for the event is July 18, 2014.
The Expo is part of Novation’s Innovative Technology Program which includes review by member-led councils and task forces of supplier submitted technologies. Once reviewed, these teams determine whether the product provides incremental clinical benefit over existing products. The members may elect to award an innovative technology contract outside of Novation's competitive bid cycle.
Since 2003, more than 1500 new and innovative technologies have been submitted through the Novation Innovative Technology program. To learn more about Novation's Innovative Technology Expo and program, visit our EXPO web page.
