DURHAM, N.C., June 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Global research leader Frost & Sullivan has recognized Validic, the healthcare industry's leading digital health platform, for its transformative and disruptive impact on healthcare, as a Top Ten Company Disrupting Healthcare. Frost & Sullivan analysts researched the healthcare landscape identifying companies with disruptive solutions that best address the present and future needs of the industry.
Frost & Sullivan analysts identified nine areas in healthcare expected to experience the most disruption and transformation in the coming years. These included patient engagement, care coordination, chronic disease management, interoperability and more. Companies with solutions that best addressed the needs for these key healthcare initiatives were selected as 2015 Healthcare Disruptors.
Frost & Sullivan noted Validic's leading digital health platform as solving "key data integration challenges with devices and applications." According to Frost & Sullivan, Validic's transformative and disruptive impact stems from its ability to "enable next generation patient engagement and population management for care coordination and wellness programs" by integrating data from fitness, clinical and other sources into one platform for action.
"We are honored to be recognized by global research leader Frost and Sullivan for Validic's disruptive technology and transformative impact on healthcare," Validic's CEO and Co-Founder Ryan Beckland said. "This list includes some of the best healthcare companies in the world today, including several of Validic's partners and clients. We greatly admire and respect all of the companies on this list, and we are humbled to be included. Together, these small handfuls of organizations are creating the solutions to the issues plaguing the healthcare system, both in the U.S and around the world. Validic remains committed to empowering this ecosystem of innovators to improve outcomes and reduce costs by bringing the provision of healthcare to everyday life."
Validic's platform, which was previously awarded by Frost & Sullivan as the Best Value in Healthcare Information Interoperability, enables quick and easy mobile health and clinical data access to its broad range of clients across all segments of healthcare.
"On analysis of the market landscape for healthcare interoperability solutions, Validic clearly stood out as generating the best value," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Shruthi Parakkal. "One of the things that sets Validic apart is the company's focus on customers throughout the entire process," noted Parakkal. "Furthermore, its mHealth interoperability platform is a unique technological solution with a quick deployment time of a few hours, and is 90 percent cheaper than a healthcare company trying to build a comparable mHealth solution internally. Validic is a great value to healthcare companies looking to accelerate their digital health business strategies."
