MEDSEEK Named on the HCI 100 List for 6th Consecutive Year

MEDSEEK, the provider of the healthcare industry’s only enterprise strategic patient engagement and management solutions, today announced that it has been named on the Healthcare Informatics 100 list for the sixth consecutive year. MEDSEEK enjoyed another record-setting year in 2011, with the demand for its web-based patient engagement technology continuing to drive the company’s success and the emerging need for advanced, predictive analytics promising to strengthen the momentum in 2012. “MEDSEEK has enjoyed steady growth since it was founded in 1996 and last year was our strongest year ever,” said Peter Kuhn, MEDSEEK’s CEO. “We’ve focused on the patient experience for 16 years and the marketplace continues to see the value of our integrated strategic patient engagement and management tools. We expect our success to continue as hospitals increasingly look for ways to leverage digital health technologies to engage patients.” MEDSEEK anticipates continued growth with healthcare reforms, the demand for patient engagement and the rapidly changing healthcare environment driving the need for hospitals to employ Web-based technologies to keep up with Meaningful Use, care collaboration, population health management and payment reform. The use of predictive analytics and behavioral science to find e-patients and predict their needs is further expected to drive demand for MEDSEEK’s products. CONVERGE, MEDSEEK’s team of digital health strategists, expects increased demand for its strategic planning and consulting services. “Hospitals are facing a rapidly evolving healthcare landscape,” continued Kuhn. “With healthcare reform and a shift in emphasis toward risk-based reimbursement models, it is imperative that hospitals develop solid strategies to successfully implement cost-effective, web-based technologies and advanced, predictive analytics to find and engage e-patients, understand their needs and equip them with the tools they need to manage their own care. MEDSEEK is committed to delivering the most sophisticated digital health tools to help our customers discover new sources of revenue, realize new cost savings and stay ahead of the competition.” The list, which has been compiled for over 20 years by Healthcare Informatics, ranks the 100 vendors with the highest revenues derived from healthcare IT products and services earned in the U.S. based on revenue information from the previous year. To formulate this list, the HCI editorial staff worked with two market research and analysis companies: Porter Research (Atlanta) and ST Advisors LLC (San Francisco). The sales figures were submitted, compiled, and reviewed by Porter Research, who ensured deserving companies were included in the list. For those who did not submit their healthcare IT revenues, both Porter and ST Advisors estimated data based on patterns of previous years’ revenue, along with information derived from official financial filings, press releases, and unrelated healthcare industry consultants.
