Innovation takes flight during the pandemic.
At the beginning of 2020, Houston Methodist was well down the innovation path. Dr. Boom had already launched the Center for Innovation, and teams were actively partnering with technology companies.
Technology to keep our patients safe.
Washing our hands. Staying six feet away from each other. Limiting large gatherings. Wearing a mask. In no point in history has safety ever been a bigger priority than during this pandemic.
When innovation meets opportunity, there’s almost no limit to what we can accomplish together. The challenges we have faced with COVID-19 have ignited technologies and innovations that could've taken years to launch.
Enriching the patient experience.
Being hospitalized is never easy, and COVID-19 makes it even more complicated. Many of the ways we treat and care for patients has changed, with technology playing an even greater role.
Keeping our teams safe and connected.
Caring for patients while keeping our employees safe – we’ve always held this as a hallmark of what matters most.
