Luis Romero and Philip Houston have worked in hospital supply chain their entire careers. In 2014 they founded The Ternio Group, a company dedicated to creating and delivering better solutions for surgical management. Recognizing the important role that preference cards play in surgical operations, they collaborated to develop a modern, data and technology-driven solution to address the problems of waste and inefficiency associated with legacy preference card management systems. That solution is PrefConnect.
