In its fourth year, this program recognizes top companies, people, platforms and products in the health, fitness and medical technology industries today.
Prealize, which was known as Cardinal Analytx Solutions until it rebranded in January 2020, supports delivery of proactive healthcare by leveraging the power of AI and machine learning (ML) to identify not only patients at rising risk of health changes, but also the timing and key drivers of that risk.
"Prealize is honored to once again be named as a top innovator in healthcare analytics by MedTech Breakthrough," said Prealize CEO Linda T. Hand. "Over the past year, we have expanded our capabilities to support that critical connection between accurate predictions of risk in population health to the meaningful actions that payers and providers can take to help patients prevent or mitigate health risks. This proactive approach to healthcare offers great potential for enabling patients to achieve better outcomes at lower costs."
More than 3,750 companies were nominated for the 2020 MedTech Breakthrough Awards. Prealize joins other top brands and innovators in health, medicine and fitness, including Eli Lilly & Co., GE Healthcare, Johnson & Johnson, Livongo, Medtronic, Nike (Nike Run Club), Oscar Health, Peloton, WebMD and Zebra Technologies, which received honors in the awards program's other categories.
