Atlanta, Georgia — March 13, 2013 – The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia’s technology industry, today announced Patientco as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. TAG will recognize this prestigious group at the 2013 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 20, 2013, at the Cobb Galleria Centre.
TAG’S Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia – based technology companies for their innovation, financial impact, and their efforts at spreading awareness of Georgia’s technology initiatives throughout the U.S. and globally.
“The 2013 Top 40 finalists are an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of Georgia’s Technology community,” said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. “The 2013 Top 40 finalists are shining examples of what makes our State such a hotbed for technology and we applaud them for standing out as leaders in Georgia’s technology community.”
This year’s Top 40 Companies were selected from among over 90 applications submitted by companies from across Georgia. Companies selected for the “Top 40” will be showcased in an exhibition at The 2013 Georgia Technology Summit.
“Our ninth year of the Top 40 was an overwhelming success, based on the number of truly innovative companies that participated in the competition,” said Dennis Zakas, a partner and founder of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, Chair of Group Office Buys, LLC, and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “The Top 40 winners demonstrate the depth and breadth of Georgia’s technology community.”
Patientco’s patient financial engagement platform produces intelligent communications specifically designed to engage patients, so that they understand exactly what they owe and their options for payment. Patientco’s Intelligence Engine extracts data to create communications that target patients uniquely based on their payment history. It then reconciles payments accurately with the Hospital’s Health Information System (HIS) to increase operational efficiencies and decrease errors.
“As a company, we are honored to be selected by TAG as a Top 40 Innovative Company in Georgia, for the second year running,” CEO Bird Blitch says. “Our Intelligence Engine engages patients financially and provides them with personalized content, so they understand more and pay faster. This decreases accounts receivable for healthcare providers and increases patient satisfaction.”
The 2013 Georgia Technology Summit is expected to draw a crowd of more than 1,000 C-level executives, entrepreneurs, technology professionals and academia to celebrate and recognize Georgia’s technology community. In addition to presentations from some of the top technology influencers in the nation, the newest member of the Technology Hall of Fame of Georgia will be inducted.
