Recently EyePACS was selected from among 300 nominees as one of the nation’s top ten telehealth solution providers for 2017. The honor was bestowed by Healthcare Tech Outlook Magazine, an annual special-edition publication that identifies telemedicine services “which require minimal upfront investment to their clinical repertoire” and “will play a pivotal role in providing cost-effective, higher value care.” The editors state that they are seeking solutions that “have exhibited comprehensive know-how and in-depth expertise.”
It is, indeed, an honor to be listed among some very innovative and fascinating telehealth solutions that are helping to use technology to deliver care in a wide range of healthcare scenarios. According to Healthcare Tech Outlook, their evaluation team and selection panel skim through hundreds of solution providers in the marketplace to shortlist the final 10 that are at the forefront of tackling technological challenges in this space. “In the process of selecting the 10 Most Promising Telemedicine Solution Providers 2017,” a spokesman said, “we analyzed the company’s offerings, core competency, news/press releases, client testimonials, milestones and other recognition… we have a full-fledged market research team which actively tracks all the solutions available in the marketplace. Round the year, they keep collating information from market reports, industry news, social media, surveys with potential buyers, and industry events.”
Capping that ongoing review, the publishers begin to solicit nominations from subscribers and online visitors three months before the special edition is to be published. An evaluation team carefully reviews those nominations, which numbered 300 this year, and also conducts independent research to shortlist about 50 top solution providers. A “distinguished panel” of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, and analysts, including the Healthcare Tech Outlook editorial board, selects the final “10 Most Promising Telemedicine Solution Providers 2017.”
Among the other telemedicine solutions featured in addition to EyePACS are: Analyze Health, integrating lab testing into telehealth ecosystems; Avedis, streamlining documentation and data collection; Corticare, a neurotelemetry company providing brain monitoring services; Great Lakes Neuro Technologies, pioneering innovation for patients with movement disorders; Health Navigator, developing digital decision-support tools and clinical vocabularies; InnovaTel Telepsychiatry; Intellivisit, using artificial intelligence to connect people to care; Teledoc, providing on-demand care using a wide range of personal electronic devices; and WorldCare International, offering expert medical second opinions via hospital partnerships.
