"The Texas Medical Center TMCx program offers startups valuable access to and advice from healthcare leaders, innovators, advisors, policy experts, and venture capitalists to help drive our continued success."
Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 26, 2016
The Right Place, a digital health startup that enables hospitals and post-acute care providers to more quickly match and discharge patients to the right place of care, today announced that it has been invited to join the Texas Medical Center Innovation Institute’s TMCx accelerator program. Beginning today through June 2016, the 13 companies selected for the TMCx program will focus on digital healthcare innovation.
“As a Houston-based team that has been quietly at work in Boston for more than a year, we’re thrilled to be included in the TMCx program as we look to introduce The Right Place to skilled nursing facilities, hospitals, and ACOs in Texas,” said Katherine Chambers, Co-Founder and CEO, The Right Place. “The time for Houston is now. As the largest medical center in the world with global leading institutions alongside commercial innovation, the Texas Medical Center innovation program offers startups valuable access to and advice from healthcare leaders, innovators, advisors, policy experts, and venture capitalists to help drive our continued success.”
In November 2015, The Right Place formally launched its bed and referral management mobile solution for skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) that includes a digital bed board, paperless hospital referrals, and instant Medicare eligibility check. The solution is already helping more than 50 SNFs optimize their bed capacity; make better, faster referral decisions on patient placements; and track real-time facility data.
