Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SEATTLE - Oct 23, 2020 - MedBridge, the industry-leading patient engagement, professional development, and reporting solution for healthcare professionals, has been named the 17th fastest-growing private company within Washington State by the Puget Sound Business Journal (PSBJ).
PSBJ’s annual list is a data-driven compilation of 100 top-performing private companies within the state that are meeting the highest benchmarks for growth and net revenue. The list includes companies from across a wide variety of sectors and provides a window into areas of dynamic entrepreneurial growth.
“Over the past year, MedBridge has continued to broaden our offering of innovative patient engagement and outcomes improvement solutions,” said Justin Kowalchuk, MedBridge founder and CEO. “We remain committed to helping our clients improve the lives of patients and quality of healthcare at a lower cost, especially during this time of disruption and rapid change. We are honored to be recognized by the Puget Sound Business Journal as one of the fastest-growing companies in the state, and are grateful to our dynamic employees and valued clients who have helped make that possible.”
The award reflects another year of strong revenue growth and leading-edge product development for MedBridge. This spring, MedBridge launched its Telehealth Virtual Visits solution as a way for healthcare organizations to provide continuity of care, increase engagement, and deepen connection with patients. As part of an integrated platform, Telehealth Virtual Visits allows providers to share prescribed exercises and education with patients in real time and track and monitor patient recovery and adherence. With Virtual Visits, healthcare organizations across settings have been able to greatly expand access to high-quality care. One client was able to open a virtual care clinic that reduced costs by 47 percent while shortening visit wait times by 60 percent and improving functional outcomes in 98 percent of patients.
Education is also key to improving outcomes, especially as the healthcare industry continuously evolves. In response to this year’s immediate need for providers to make a quick transition to virtual care, MedBridge paired its telehealth solution with new, innovative micro-learning content. With easily consumable, just-in-time training, clinicians can quickly bring themselves up to speed on clinical best practices to promote improved patient learning and adherence during telehealth sessions. MedBridge’s innovations continue to support both providers and patients, improving care and lowering costs.
MedBridge has received a number of honors this year, including two 2020 Silver Stevie awards from The American Business Awards and Best Patient Portal award from MedTech Breakthrough Awards. The company was also named to the Top 100 Fastest-Growing Private Businesses list by PSBJ once before in 2018.
