NEW YORK, Oct. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- CipherHealth was awarded the No. 2 spot on Modern Healthcare's eighth annual Top 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare list. This marks the second year in a row the New York City-based healthcare technology firm ranked in the Top 5. CipherHealth shares the list with healthcare providers, insurers, and suppliers nationwide.
Each year, Modern Healthcare ranks leading organizations with high levels of employee satisfaction and success in the healthcare field. Taking various factors into account when determining its rankings, including employee satisfaction, workplace culture, and work-life balance, Modern Healthcare conducts a thorough exploration of each organization by surveying all employees of the companies under consideration. The firm also conducts in-depth interviews with company leaders.
New York City is known for its status as a healthcare technology hub with many innovative companies working to solve healthcare's largest problems. CipherHealth is proud to represent New York City on this list among other elite healthcare organizations.
Randy Cheung, CipherHealth's co-founder, said, "It speaks to the passion and dedication of our team that we were able to rank this highly on the list multiple years in a row. We are practicing the same things we work with our clients on, increasing transparency, accountability, and open communication. As our team grows both in volume and scope, we have seen continued success by staying true to the values that made us great early on."
CipherHealth's tools have helped hospitals and other healthcare organizations reduce avoidable readmissions, improve patient satisfaction, and enhance the quality of care since 2009. Beyond benefiting patients, the tools CipherHealth offers lead to higher levels of staff satisfaction.
