Hosted by the Texas Medical Center’s TMC Innovation Institute, the Healthcare Games Showdown™ is an Accelerator meets Game Jam in which medical and healthcare games or gamification concepts will be created by college students under the direction of medical and video game mentors.
"The Healthcare Games Showdown will draw considerable attention to how serious simulations and games can positively impact healthcare outcomes. Plus it will show that Houston not only has quality young talent, but amazing medical resources to help scale up a business. Personally, I would love to see a video game come out of this that will emprove compliance and patients taking their medications on time."
