We just got the exciting news at the NTC Holiday party. We gathered at Weld with about 300 Nashville-area developers and technology entrepreneurs to meet, mingle and celebrate.
The Early Stage Company of the Year award is presented to a start-up or emerging growth company that has shown exceptional growth through technological innovation. The winning company must use technology in a new and innovative way to obtain success and contribute to the region’s overall economic health.
Our innovations are helping clinicians leverage data to better care for their patients while reducing costs. The number of agencies using our analytics products tripled this year and our employee count has doubled.
While this is thrilling, what’s most significant is the affect our solutions have on the patient. Our Bridge solution is the only tool on the market that uses predictive analytics and workflows to help ensure the right patients hear about their end-of-life care options at the right time. Organizations that use our technology have increased days on hospice census by 30 percent. Further, our readmission reduction techology, Touch, helps home health organizations reduce readmissions by more than 20 percent.
We’re not stopping there though. We’re unveiling a new technology that is one of a kind. This solution uses predictive insights to determine which patients could benefit from an additional home health care episode and which former patients need care again.
The award Dan is nominated for—2015 Innovator of the Year—is presented to an individual or team who has created or implemented an innovative technology-based product, service or process that enhances customer experience, profitability, efficiency or life experience.
Dan's accomplishments with healthcare technology make him a fierce contender for this honor. A former home health owner and operator, Dan started Medalogix because he realized his industry wasn’t fully taking advantage of analytics or technology to improve care and reduce healthcare costs. Now his company's home health technology is making a positive difference for patients and the healthcare system as whole. Not only that, his Bridge tool is helping patients better live their final days.
