(PRWEB) February 17, 2016
HealthRight, the most comprehensive ehealth services provider, today announced it has been selected as a finalist in the Healthcare Innovator category of the 2016 PACT (Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies) Enterprise Awards.
The Enterprise Awards, presented by PACT and in partnership with KPMG, recognizes and honors leadership and outstanding achievement in the technology, healthcare and life sciences industries throughout the region.
HealthRight’s unique “high tech-high touch” approach leverages cutting edge technology and deep clinical knowledge to create a patient experience that is efficient, cost-effective, and supportive. HealthRight nurse advocates, available to patients at all times and at no cost, provide 360 degree care coordination, including guidance, support, clinical intake, and follow up services. HealthRight doctors are available to patients 24/7/365, from anywhere, offering patients a trusted alternative to long wait times and high copays, improving compliance and better health.
“We are honored to be recognized by PACT as a finalist in such a competitive category,” said John Palumbo, CEO, HealthRight. “This acknowledgment is a sign that there is a huge need for disruption in the health care space. Our team is working to address the biggest challenges impacting the health care industry today – access to high quality and affordable care – one member and one company at a time.”
In addition to working directly with consumers, HealthRight has two affordable and flexible programs for employers that augment their current benefit plans. iCare and iCare+ are structured to meet the needs of any size organization and allow employees to connect with clinicians conveniently – from anywhere, at any time. As with all HealthRight services, these telemedicine programs also offer access to important follow-up care, such as prescriptions, lab tests, or imaging studies and health savings.
“With more than 450 nominations, the judges were truly challenged and did a terrific job identifying honorees that represent the best of our region’s proud technology and life sciences communities,” said Dianne Strunk, Vice President of PACT. “Thank you to all of the companies that submitted, and on behalf of PACT and Enterprise Award Judging Partner KPMG, I congratulate all of this year’s Finalists.”
A highly distinguished, independent panel of judges selected finalists in each of the award categories. The winner for each of the nine award categories will be announced at a black-tie Gala on May 12th.
