Innovator of the Year for Health IT

Innovator of the YearWe’re proud to be based in Pittsburgh, PA!  And, on November 3rd, we were equally proud to be honored as Innovator of the Year: Health IT at the Pittsburgh Technology Council’s Tech 50 Awards.  For 20 years, the Tech 50 Award has honored southwestern Pennsylvania’s most successful and innovative technology companies – list of finalists.

The award criteria included recent newsworthy events, key 2016 accomplishments, how products are revolutionizing the market and regional economic impact.  The judging panel was impressed with TeleTracking’s double digit growth for the last five years, the implementation of 100 new patient flow solutions at some of the country’s largest health systems, and the end result of more patients receiving timely access to care.  For example, health systems that have implemented TeleTracking have realized results such as:

  • patient transfer volume up 230% in 6 quarters
  • emergency department diversion hours all but eliminated
  • emergency department wait times decreased by 33,000 hours
  • reduction in patient admit (in ED) to occupy (patient room) time by more than 3 hours
  • decrease in unplanned discharges by 30%

As Mike Gallup, president of TeleTracking, accepted the award, he shared his thoughts on the robust nature of the Pittsburgh tech market by saying, “I’ve worked in Silicon Valley, Research Triangle Park in Raleigh and now in Pittsburgh.  There is no better place than Pittsburgh right now for technology and innovation and the people are the reason for that.  They have an incredibly strong work ethic that consistently leads to high quality results.”

We’d like to extend our sincere thanks to the Pittsburgh tech community for the supportive, innovative culture that is fostered here.  And we’d also like to thank our clients for their ongoing belief in the importance of patient flow and the role that TeleTracking plays in helping them deliver outstanding care.

Produced for the ceremony, we’re happy to share this video that brings our life.
