As seen on Jewish Press of Tampa Bay “Israeli tech innovators to partner with Tampa General Hospital”

Tampa General Hospital and the Florida-Israel Business Accelerator (FIBA) are partnering in an effort to use Israeli innovative solutions for improving the quality and delivery of health care in the Tampa Bay region and beyond.

“Innovation is so much more than new technology,” said John Couris, president and CEO of Tampa General Hospital. “We expect our partnership with FIBA will significantly advance our vision to be the safest and most innovative academic health system in America.”

Out of 50 Israeli startup companies applying for the program, TGH selected seven to focus on efficiency and quality in Tampa General Medical Group’s outpatient physician offices. The chosen companies participated in weekly group and one-on-one coaching sessions over a period of six weeks with FIBA advisors to prepare them for presentations to Tampa General’s ambulatory leadership team.

The selected companies were tasked with solving challenges associated with: • Streamlining manual administrative tasks • Aligning all patient health information for pre-visit physician reporting • Improving administrative workflow processes • Designing an improved exam-room experience

Once the presentations were made, the Tampa General team began assessing the potential companies and will select at least one company for a software-based, proof-of-concept project. If the test project is successful, Tampa General will begin implementing solutions.
