HealthTrust Innovation Center

HealthTrust’s Innovation Center is the avenue for suppliers with new technology to present their truly innovative products for review. Internal subject matter experts and service line clinical experts from within the HealthTrust membership will determine if those products are clinically acceptable and if the financial and operational impacts are of such value to add them to the HealthTrust contract portfolio.

Current or prospective suppliers with “new technology” directly related to patient care, information technology or supply chain management are eligible to submit products for review.

Products deemed to meet the “new technology” definition by internal review may be invited to participate in member-level review, which could take place as part of a live event. One such live event is the HealthTrust Innovation Summit.

Applications received by Jan. 15, 2020, will be considered for the Innovation Summit. Submissions received after this time will be reviewed and considered for addition to the HealthTrust contract portfolio through processes aligned with the Strategic Sourcing team’s work plan.

Submit Product for Consideration Live Summit Event

HealthTrust’s definition of “new technology” is classified as a product that, as compared to existing products and as demonstrated in an independent, peer-reviewed publication(s):

  • Offers significant technological advancements,
  • Significantly improves clinical outcomes or patient care (i.e., documented reduction in procedure times, outcomes, lengths of stay, readmissions, infection rates), or
  • Significantly streamlines work processes and/or the economics of facility operations (i.e., increase or decrease expenses in supply chain or resource utilization).
