Health Monitoring Systems Named Pittsburgh Tech 50 Awards Finalist by Pittsburgh Technology Council

[Pittsburgh, PA, August 11, 2015] – Pittsburgh’s Health Monitoring Systems, the country’s largest provider of population health surveillance data, has been chosen as an “Innovator of the Year” finalist in the Pittsburgh Technology Council’s Tech 50 Awards.

For nearly 20 years, the Pittsburgh Technology Council’s annual Tech 50 Awards have recognized southwestern Pennsylvania’s most successful, innovative, and thought-leading technology companies, which have become the backbone of Pittsburgh’s new economy.

The awards represent transformative technology centers of excellence with tech companies at all stages of growth. Tech 50 also recognizes the region’s top tech executive.

“Each year, the Council canvasses the region for the most distinguished public and private technology-oriented companies, and the Tech 50 awards honor those companies that demonstrated the strongest growth and advancement in product or sales success, financial strength, corporate citizenship, job growth and retention and innovative product or technology,” said Audrey Russo, President and CEO, Pittsburgh Technology Council. “We are excited to announce the category winners at the awards gala this fall. It is truly a night to celebrate our region’s technology companies and the contributions they have made to our economic vitality.”

“We are especially proud to be nominated in the category of “innovator of the year,” according to Kevin Hutchison, Health Monitoring Systems’ CEO. “Our company provides health monitoring coverage to 12.5% of American population—and we have the ability to collect 300,000 data messages each hour from hospitals across the nation. As we continue to grow and help public health departments to monitor, collect, and maintain vital information, we are excited to be a part of Pittsburgh’s vibrant tech community.”

Tech 50 winners will be announced on October 29, 2015 at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh.
