Technology Association of Georgia: Southeastern Software Association Honors Bioscape for Innovation in 5th annual awards ceremony in the "Where Georgia Leads: Health IT Category."
May 13, 2014 (Newswire) - The TAG Southeastern Software Association (SSA), one of the founding members of the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), announced Bioscape Digital as the winner of the Impact Award in the "Where Georgia Leads: Health IT" category at the their 5th annual event on April 24th, 2014.
TAG is the state's leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia's technology industry, and the SSA is one of the South's oldest technology organizations and was the largest of TAG's three founding organizations, along with WIT and B&TA in 1998.
This year's Impact award winners were selected from 96 nominated companies, from which 23 finalists were selected across the five categories: Technology Solutions Provider, Independent Software Vendor, Corporate Internal Software Development Group, Where Georgia Leads: Healthcare IT, and Emerging Megatrend. The finalists in the Where Georgia Leads: HealthIT were Accuhealth Technologies, Azalea Health, Bioscape Digital, Bluetube, BrightWhistle, and ER Express. The selection criteria were based upon the complexity of the problem, creativity of the solution, and the overall business impact of the product. The winners were announced at an awards dinner on April 24th at the Hyatt Regency in Marietta, GA.
"The Southeastern Software Association Impact Awards recognize companies and their teams who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in bringing new technology solutions to the market," said Bates Mattison, Executive Director of the Institute for Healthcare IT and guest judge for the Impact Awards. "Congratulations to Bioscape Digital for their innovation and creativity in winning the Health IT award, and the testament to the skill, ingenuity and vision of its creators".
Bioscape Digital's award-winning 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 understand their health insurance options. 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.
"This is a fantastic honor," said Stuart Bracken, CEO of Bioscape Digital. "We are excited to have been recognized out of such an impressive group of finalists, since there is such a great ecosystem of Health Technology companies in the area. We will continue to innovate and improve as we look to transform the patient experience at hospitals around the world."
