Health Monitoring Systems, the country’s largest provider of population health surveillance data, has again been chosen as an “Innovator of the Year” finalist in the Pittsburgh Technology Council’s annual Tech 50 Awards.
The awards recognize technology centers of excellence, including companies at all stages of growth. Health Monitoring has been selected as a Tech50 finalist twice in the past three years.
Meanwhile, as Pittsburgh creates thousands of new jobs in engineering and systems design, its reputation as an up-and-coming tech hub continues to grow. That makes the honor of being recognized by the PTC even more significant.
“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.
“Our company provides health monitoring coverage to 12.5% of American population, and we have the ability to collect 300,000 data messages per hour from hospitals across the nation,” said Kevin Hutchison, CEO of Health Monitoring Systems. “As we continue to grow, helping public health departments to monitor, collect, and maintain vital information, we are excited to be a part of Pittsburgh’s vibrant tech community.”
