March 18, 2014 (Newswire) - The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state's leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia's technology industry, today announced Bioscape Digital as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. TAG will recognize this prestigious group at the 2014 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 26, 2014, at the Cobb Galleria Centre.
TAG'S Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based technology companies for their innovation, financial impact, and their efforts at spreading awareness of Georgia's technology initiatives throughout the U.S. and globally.
"The 2014 Top 40 finalists are an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of Georgia's Technology community," said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. "The 2014 Top 40 finalists are shining examples of what makes our State such a hotbed for technology and we applaud them for standing out as leaders in Georgia's technology community."
This year's Top 40 Companies were selected from among over 100 applications submitted by companies from across Georgia. Companies selected for the "Top 40" will be showcased in an exhibition at The 2014 Georgia Technology Summit.
"Our tenth year of the Top 40 was an overwhelming success, based on the number of truly innovative companies that participated in the competition," said Dennis Zakas, a partner and founder of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, Chair of Group Office Buys, LLC, and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. "The Top 40 winners demonstrate the depth and breadth of Georgia's technology community."
Bioscape Digital's platform places proprietary tablets loaded with text, audio and 3D visual imagery into health systems (i.e. ER and Imaging Centers). The service also allows providers to give patients discharge instructions through the platform, to collect patient feedback so that it can be addressed in real time (before the patient fills out an HCAHPS form) and even help patients get health insurance. Additionally, Bioscape offers a suite of services (PictureRx) around medication compliance and history. Clients include multiple national hospital systems as well as major regional healthcare providers and a number of other healthcare companies. "We are thrilled to have been selected as one of TAG's Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies for 2014," said Stuart Bracken, CEO of Bioscape Digital. "We are honored to be a part of such a select group of innovative companies and feel that it is further validation of the hard work that the whole team has contributed so far."
The 2014 Georgia Technology Summit is expected to draw a crowd of more than 1,300 C-level executives, entrepreneurs, technology professionals and academia to celebrate and recognize Georgia's technology community. In addition to presentations from some of the top technology influencers in the nation, the newest member of the Technology Hall of Fame of Georgia will be inducted.
