OUR LEADERS SPEAK ABOUT INNOVATION

WHAT IS INNOVATION AT HOUSTON METHODIST?
From the C-suite to the ground floor, we encourage a spirit of innovation at Houston Methodist. This means empowering our teams to bring forward ideas and continuously look for opportunities to innovate throughout the entire organization.
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is the application of software "robots," (not physical robots) that mimic human action and connect multiple systems through automation without changing the existing information technology landscape.
Our dedicated team of innovators have come together to nurture an enthusiasm that borders on obsession for digital innovation. While our steering committee leads the charge, it's our belief that everyone at Houston Methodist is an innovator—from the operating room to the cafeteria—we look to our staff for inspiration, ideas and opportunity.
