TechNation|TKA, HTG Form Asset Management Business

The formation of an asset management firm, Healthcare Technology Group (HTG), was announced by The Innovation Institute and Tech Knowledge Associates (TKA), its subsidiary specializing in full-risk health care technology management. Drawing from decades of service and experience, HTG aims to reinvent and simplify the concept of medical equipment management.

HTG will be led by Steve Cannon as president and CEO. Cannon has a long and distinguished career in health care, as well as in the health care technology and the asset management industry. He has held executive leadership positions at Sun Health and Premier, one of the nation’s largest GPOs. He served as the inaugural president at AllParts Medical, and has held executive leadership roles at Aramark, Philips Healthcare, Sodexo and Althea U.S.

Cannon says that he intends for HTG to be the partner of choice for asset management in the U.S. health care market, and provider of health care technology consulting and other services for both the health care and commercial market segments nationwide.

Under The Innovation Institute, and with the Healthcare Technology Group business model and brand, Cannon added that the company expects to bring its technology and service standard to a broad number of health care providers. Speaking about HTG’s vision, Cannon explained that, “At a strategic level, HTG plans to offer unprecedented partnership structures to in-house programs for both health systems and rural hospitals – programs that have historically only been offered to large hospitals and health systems.”

Cannon also emphasized that “HTG will be able to deliver a comprehensive and differentiated clinical asset management program in an ever-changing environment.” He says the company intends to create value and be transformative by providing one of the most comprehensive service offerings in the industry. HTG’s programs are designed to reduce their clients’ cost of maintaining their equipment portfolio, while also delivering improved equipment performance, reduced equipment downtime, enhanced customer satisfaction and optimized patient outcomes.
