Atlanta-based company recognized for innovative contribution to Health IT in the state of Georgia
PREMEDEX has been selected as a winner of the Phoenix Award of 2015. Given annually by the Metro Atlanta Chamber, this prestigious award honors companies and individuals who have played a significant role in advancing innovative healthcare IT solutions in the state of Georgia.
PREMEDEX started with a primary focus on helping hospitals improve patient care and coordination, which can have a significant direct impact on operating budgets resulting from penalties assessed under new federal healthcare regulations and value-based mechanisms in new contracts. Hospitals throughout the nation use PREMEDEX solutions and services to help them better manage patient populations being discharged from hospital stays, and through the patients’ transition to rehabilitation and back to their homes or other care facilities. PREMEDEX has expanded its solutions to now also serve physician practices focused on better serving the needs of patients with chronic conditions with an efficient, turn-key Chronic Care Management solution.
“We are very honored to be recognized for our efforts to assist hospitals and physicians alike with their continued focus on delivering quality patient care in a changing and sometimes complex environment,” commented Van Willis, President and Co-Founder of PREMEDEX. “We built our software and our services with direct input from the hospital and physician practice community, and from that collaboration, our solutions continue to be well-received and have a significant positive impact on helping our clients achieve their objectives,” added Jim Bowling, Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder of PREMEDEX.
"As an early stage company, PREMEDEX quickly captured the attention of customers and venture capitalists,” said David Hartnett, Vice President of Economic Development for the Metro Atlanta Chamber. “Earlier this year, we were proud to have them be showcased as one of the startups in the Georgia Pavilion at the Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMMS), the world’s largest HIT conference.”
PREMEDEX provides a technology enabled continuity of care service platform via a cloud-based subscription model. The PREMEDEX platform and staff of healthcare coordinators streamline the communication process with patients and enable providers to capitalize on chronic care management, capture transitional care management revenue, reduce avoidable readmission, and improve patient outcomes.
