LAS VEGAS, Feb. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- CirrusMD, a virtual care company, is headed to the annual Healthcare Information Management and Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference having just been named Juniper Research's Future of Digital Award Winner in the category of "Digital Health – Best Platform/Technology." This is the second top award for CirrusMD in recent months. CirrusMD earned their spot at this year's HIMSS 2016 conference as a winner of the mHealth Summit Venture+ Forum Pitch Competition in November, 2015.
With utilization rates six times higher than the industry average, and reengagement rates of 22 percent, along with multiple industry awards, the firm is positioned to be a top early-stage digital health company to watch in 2016. "High utilization rates and a solid business model which supports payers, providers, and patients as they work toward better outcomes are big parts of the equation," says Andrew Altorfer, CEO and Co-founder of CirrusMD.
"Winning the Venture+ Forum as an established digital health company was an affirmation that our unique remote care solution, designed specifically for value-based care, is winning over all sides of health care," said Altorfer. "And it shows in our utilization numbers."
Those numbers have CirrusMD's products and services poised for much wider adoption in 2016. Engaging with an expected 45,000 healthIT conference attendees this week is an opportunity for CirrusMD to show how they deliver a new reality of value-based health care — one that meets the needs of all stakeholders: patients, physicians, risk-bearing entities, health data providers, and the healthcare system as a whole.
About 250,000 people already have access to the CirrusMD platform, receiving continuity of patient care, on-demand access to physicians over a variety of channels, and measurable value-based health care delivery.
"Juniper Research's Future of Digital Awards for Technology and Innovation are given to businesses whose solutions are positioned to make a significant impact in the future," Altorfer said. "We're pleased to be selected as a leader in innovation within the digital health field. We are constantly striving for improved user experiences at lower costs, and it shows."
CirrusMD develops "closed loop" virtual care solutions for value-based health care. The company's unique telemedicine platform ensures continuity of patient care and enables on-demand physician access over multiple channels -- text messaging, image sharing, video chat and phone. At its most basic CirrusMD delivers care to patients the way physicians deliver care to their own friends and family, while reducing costs, increasing patient access, enabling data continuity and improving quality care for everyone.
