Vizient, Inc. announces the finalists for its fourth annual Innovation Challenge, an event designed to illuminate some of the best new ideas in healthcare today. The five companies were chosen from a pool of almost 60 submissions spanning 17 states and four countries. Areas of focus include medical devices, genomics, wearables, artificial intelligence and healthcare IT. The Innovation Challenge will be held September 30 during the Clinical Connections Summit at the Hyatt Regency Dallas.
Part pitch competition, part panel discussion, the Innovation Challenge finalists will each deliver a seven-minute presentation to an expected audience of roughly 2,200 attendees at the Vizient 2016 Clinical Connections Summit. Using real-time polling technology, each audience member gets a vote, and the firm receiving the most votes will be named the Innovation Challenge Winner of 2016 immediately after the presentations.
