CHIME Innovation’s InnoCast to Showcase Successful Startup-Provider Partnerships
ANN ARBOR, MI, June 22, 2020 – It’s one thing to have a creative solution that in theory solves a gnawing problem in healthcare and another to have a real-world customer who can vouch for that innovation’s value. This month the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) will kick off InnoCast, a new program that highlights partnerships between startups and healthcare organizations that have worked together to solve real problems in healthcare.
“Innovation in a vacuum is rarely, if ever, a success,” said Jonathan Fritz, JD, CHIME’s chief innovation officer. “Healthcare is especially challenging, with regulatory, patient safety and other issues that need to be addressed. Having a strong partnership that allows an entrepreneur and a digital healthcare executive to test, iterate and retest a solution in a real-world healthcare setting helps to quickly work out any problems and ensure the solution truly delivers customer value.”
CHIME Innovation will host InnoCast, which will hold its first session at 10 a.m. ET June 24. The session will highlight a partnership between UT Health Austin and Sentinel Healthcare focusing on contact tracing and home monitoring. Speakers include:
- Aaron Miri, CIO at UT Health Austin
- Liz Jacobs, MD, associate chair of research in the Department of Medicine at Dell Medical School
- Nirav Shah, MD, CEO and founder of Sentinel Healthcare
Registration is free and open to the public. The session will be followed by a Q&A for members of CHIME, CHIME International and any CHIME associations. The members-only Q&A will include Darlene Bhavnani, Ph.D., UT Health Austin’s infectious disease epidemiologist and global health specialist, and Harris Health CIO David Chou as moderator.

Editor’s note: The media are welcome to attend the June 24 session. No special registration is required.
