Charleston, SC – July 31, 2020 – Verge Health announced today that it has been selected as a finalist in the Fierce Innovation Awards – Healthcare Edition 2020, a peer reviewed awards program from the publisher of Fierce Healthcare. The competition recognizes innovative solutions that demonstrate the greatest potential to save money, engage patients, or revolutionize the industry over the past 12 months.
Verge was chosen as a finalist in the category of Data Analytics and Business Intelligence for its innovative, industry-leading product, the Converge Platform with Insights. Verge’s platform combines governance, risk, and compliance into a single dashboard that allows health systems and individual medical facilities to identify, track, and address errors and omissions in three major data categories: providers, safety, and compliance. The Converge platform also features embedded data analytics and business intelligence tools through Insights, which provide a 360-degree analysis of safety and compliance to key stakeholders. Combining these capabilities into one platform gives administrators enterprise-wide visibility into risk and adherence, allowing them to see problems as they unfold and to respond to those issues before they become major safety or compliance concerns.
Judges include an exclusive panel of executives from major healthcare companies such as Accenture Health; Aspirus, Inc.; Aveus, a Division of Medecision; Cook Children’s Health Care System; Duncan Regional Hospital; Evolution Road; GNS Healthcare; Hackensack Meridian Health; HMS; and Proliance Surgeons. All applications were evaluated based on a product or service’s effectiveness, technical innovation, competitive advantage, financial impact, and true innovation. A full list of judges can be found at https://fiercehealthcareawards.secure-platform.com/a/page/judges.
Winners will be announced in the 2020 Innovation Report set to publish by Fierce Healthcare on Sept. 14.
