Global Center for Health Innovation Adds TPA Stream as First Startup Tenant


The new member joins the facility's growing mix of innovative
healthcare companies

The Global Center for Health Innovation (Global Center) announced today
that Cleveland-based Health IT startup, TPA Stream, has joined the
building as a new tenant. TPA
, which creates a web-based software to help streamline
healthcare administration, will occupy 4,500 square feet in the unique

The addition of TPA Stream as a Global Center tenant represents
continued momentum in BioEnterprise's efforts to transform the building
into an active innovation center where health systems, large healthcare
corporations, investors and startups convene to collaborate and attack
healthcare problems that can't be solved independently.

TPA Stream is the first startup to move into its own space at the Global
Center and joins other organizations such as BioEnterprise, Plug and
Play and HIMSS, all of whom moved into or renewed their commitment to
the Global Center in early 2018. Bringing startups, investors and
corporations under one roof supports the vision BioEnterprise announced
when it assumed responsibility for the Global Center's strategy,
marketing and tenant programming almost a year ago.

"We wanted to transform the space into a resource where healthcare
organizations could convene, collaborate and advance their strategic
objectives or develop new solutions," said Aram Nerpouni, BioEnterprise
President & CEO. "Critical to this process is the active collaboration
between corporations, investors and startups. We're excited to bring TPA
Stream into the Global Center community and connect them to some of the
sector's biggest and most innovative thinkers. We have no doubt that
their presence at the Global Center will be beneficial for TPA Stream
and all tenants."

As part of their ongoing strategy to convene and develop new solutions,
BioEnterprise and the Global Center continue to engage healthcare
thought leaders globally. Accenture Healthcare is partnering with
BioEnterprise and the Global Center community to develop a data platform
to assist community service providers attacking the opioid crisis. Roche
and Accenture Healthcare conducted a digital oncology forum in the HIMSS
Innovation Center with participation from the Global Center's health
system stakeholders.

"The Global Center is one of the nation's most unique spaces for
healthcare-related companies, and we're excited to call this building
our new home," said Jacob Sheridan, TPA Stream CEO. "In the past few
weeks, we'd had conversations with many other companies looking to join
us at the Global Center. We're excited to be a part of the Global Center
community and look forward to working alongside fellow tenants to help
them think differently and solve some of healthcare's biggest issues."
