For the third time in four years, Health Monitoring has been selected by Pittsburgh Technology Council as a finalist in the Tech 50 Awards. This year, Health Monitoring was again honored in the category of Health IT Innovator of the Year.
Since 1996, the PTC’s Tech 50 Awards have recognized the most successful and innovative technology companies in southwestern Pennsylvania. The awards put a spotlight on the region’s transformative technology centers of excellence, including tech companies at all stages of growth. The council also names the region’s top tech executive for the year.
“We are proud to be nominated in the category of Innovator of The Year,” says Kevin Hutchison, CEO of Health Monitoring. “Our company currently provides health monitoring coverage to 12.5% of the American population, and we are continuing to expand our services to help public health departments collect and track vital community health information.”
Health Monitoring is the country’s largest provider of population health monitoring systems, collecting, processing, and analyzing information from 3,600 ambulatory care facilities, nearly 600 hospitals, and the National Poison Data System. Its current projects focus on new applications of real-time data that enable users to track the prevalence of opioid addiction and related conditions.
The Tech 50 award winners will be announced on October 25, 2018 at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh.
