Texas A & M University System, The Key Developments

Royal Philips Teams Up with The Texas A&M University System to Establish Center for Global Health & Innovation

Royal Philips and The Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp announced a collaboration aimed at developing population health solutions as part of the Healthy South Texas pilot project, creating integrated Emergency Medical Services (EMS) technologies for more efficient and effective coordination of response efforts, and developing point-of-care diagnostics and biosurveillance to help avoid epidemics and pandemics. As part of the collaboration, Philips and The Texas A&M University System will establish The Center for Global Health and Innovation on campus, an open innovation environment that will foster public-private partnerships to rapidly design, develop, prototype, and showcase healthcare solutions. The collaboration will focus on three main project areas: Healthy South Texas Population Health Initiative (HST) - The main goal of the HST program is to build a robust and replicable foundation for prevention, community outreach, and engagement. The program will also extend wellness services by expanding and enhancing disease prevention and control programs to every citizen of South Texas. Philips and Texas A&M University System will look to scale and replicate these best practice models of population health management nationally and globally. EMS Integrated Solutions – Aimed at increasing real-time visibility into medical resources and availability, the program will co-develop holistic solutions that can help support emergency medical coordinators, increasing efficiency and efficacy. The program will include developing a platform for coordination of EMS supplies and service, as well as solutions that leverage Philips decision-support and analytics technologies to help State, City and Municipal administrators prepare for, respond to, and recover from major medical disasters. Training programs on these new and existing technologies will also be included. Point-of-Care Diagnostics and Biosurveillance – By combining Philips expertise in point-of-care diagnostics for patients with The Texas A&M University System’s expertise in animal biosurveillance, the collaboration seeks to establish an integrated network for monitoring infectious diseases and help to establish standards for a One Health approach. The One Health concept recognizes that the health of humans is connected to both the health of animals and the environment, and it is recognized that greater collaboration between healthcare providers focused on each of these areas can prevent public health threats.

Texas AandM University System Selects Servitas, LLC to Develop 48 Acres West of the George Bush Drive and Wellborn Road Intersection into Student Housing

The Texas AandM University System has selected Servitas, LLC to develop 48 acres west of the George Bush Drive and Wellborn Road intersection into student housing. The land will be ground leased to NCCD-College Station Properties LLC which will engage Servitas to develop the property and contract with Servitas Management Group, LLC to serve as manager of the development. Under the terms of the ground lease, NCCD-College Station will pay $18.5 million upfront to Texas AandM University, and future revenues are projected to average $20 million annually over 30 years. The facilities will revert to The Texas AandM University System upon termination of the ground lease. Park West, as the development is to be known, is the large of five recent public-private projects of the Texas AandM System in College Station. Those five projects are expected to generate more than $900 million in benefits to Texas AandM over the life of the long-term projects typically 30 years or more and Park West will account for almost two-thirds of that total. When the Park West development opens in August 2017, it will provide an additional 3,402 beds in the community for students in facilities ranging from studio apartments to three-bedroom garden-style units.
