ATLANTA, May 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- iPro, Inc. was recently recognized by the American Business Awards and the Software and Information Industry Association for the company's iOrder ambulatory order management solution. iOrder won the Gold Stevie® Award for Healthcare Technology Solutions in the 19th Annual American Business Awards,® which "recognizes the best solutions for improving care quality, patient safety, efficiency, medical information and data exchange to healthcare professionals or consumers." iOrder was also announced as a 2021 CODiE Award Finalist in the Best Healthcare Technology Solution category by SIIA, which "recognizes excellence by honoring leading technology products and services."
iOrder enables the secure exchange of medical information between disparate electronic health record systems, delivering the knowledge of the hospital to the initial point of care with the referring doctor. The cloud-based, HIPAA-compliant platform improves patient safety and care quality by minimizing incorrect coding and unnecessary procedures, ensuring that an appropriate, reimbursable exam is always ordered. Integrated clinical decision support and digital front door features streamline provider workflows and bring end-to-end transparency to ambulatory orders—addressing a significant source of revenue leakage for healthcare organizations.
More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year's Stevie Award winners from a record-breaking 3,800 nominations. Judges praised iOrder's ability to "digitally transform the referral process in healthcare and help doctors and patients with accurate data and reduced time, effort, and cost involved in the process, thus leading way to improved healthcare and overall satisfaction."
"The future of healthcare is democratized and patient-centric," said one Stevie judge. "iOrder is building many early, strong connective tissues to get us ready for a better, hyper-connected digital healthcare system with patients at the center." Another judge noted, "iOrder provides a structured, efficient process when lives and health of individuals require it. Streamlining communications and ensuring doctors' orders are delivered accurately cannot be undervalued. iPro's focus on such a regulated environment talks to the value of the effort and their confidence in addressing the problem set."
SIIA CODiE Award judges also praised iPro's commitment to innovation and care. "This is an innovative solution that aims to fill the bridge between ambulatory care and hospitals," stated one CODiE judge. "This process takes a lot of manual work out and streamlines the ordering process, increases provider confidence and patient satisfaction."
"Roughly 80% of all serious medical errors involve miscommunication during care transitions," said iPro President Denny Phillips. "We developed iOrder to bridge the gaps between health systems, referring physicians, and patients to improve patient safety and experience and the flow of information between providers. It is an honor for our efforts to be recognized by the American Business Awards and SIIA."
