eHealth Portal Leader Jumps to #1473 from Its #1723 Ranking in 2008
MEDSEEK, the leading provider of healthcare enterprise portal solutions, today announced that it has been named one of the 5,000 fastest growing private companies in the U.S. by Inc. Magazine. Sales of its eHealth ecoSystem solutions have increased more than 150% over the past three years, vaulting the company 250 spots to #1473 in the second annual Inc. 5000.
“We are excited to receive this recognition. MEDSEEK’s dedicated focus to improving health and health care through the beneficial application of Web technology is paying dividends, in a time when the entire nation is turning to eHealth to help transform health care,” stated Peter Kuhn, CEO of MEDSEEK. “We attribute this success to our proven track record for delivering solutions of value. Our reputation for upholding our commitments and adding dollars to hospitals’ bottom lines has resulted in a growing demand for our innovative eHealth solutions.”
Kuhn added, “With significant federal incentives on the horizon for organizations that prove ‘meaningful use’ of HIT, MEDSEEK is uniquely positioned for growth. We are the only eHealth provider that can implement technology that enhances the experience of all healthcare constituents across the enterprise, streamlining access to information, improving communication, strengthening relationships and enhancing clinical decision making.”
“Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate,” said Inc. 5000 project manager Jim Melloan. “That’s why our list is so eagerly anticipated every year.”
The Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2005 through 2008. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by the first week of 2005, and therefore able to show four full calendar years of sales. Additionally, they have to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent -- not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies -- as of December 31, 2008. Revenue in 2005 must have been at least $200,000, and revenue in 2008 must have been at least $2 million. The top 10 percent of companies on the list comprise the Inc. 500, now in its 28th year.
