With over 200 health IT companies headquartered in Georgia — both corporate giants and agile, rapidly-scaling startups — the state has been referred to as the digital health capital of the country. It’s only appropriate, then, that Georgia made an appearance as the only state with its own pavilion at this year’s HIMSS Conference, one of the biggest events of the year in the Health IT world.
Sponsored by the Georgia Department of Economic Development and the Metro Atlanta Chamber (MAC), 13 of Georgia’s best and brightest Health IT stars showcased their products and sent their thought leaders to the pavilion.
“Because Georgia’s health IT sector is the largest in the nation, we have the talent to drive the latest trends and technology across the industry,” said Kornelius Bankston, MAC’s director of Bioscience Ecosystem Expansion . “With our delegation’s strong presence at HIMSS, we can demonstrate why metro Atlanta is among the top 10 best healthcare cities and a top 10 tech talent market.”
Check out some of these healthcare stars:
- Cloud-based healthcare management and billing platform Azalea Health brought both their CEO, Baha Zeiden, and VP of Sales, Justin Pierce.
- Pathology Tracker is a tracking system for pathology clinics with a recently-launched mobile app. Think of it like a FedEx tracking label for your lab specimens.
- QGenda provides cloud-based scheduling software for physicians. The Atlanta-based company recently celebrated its 10th anniversary.
Georgia’s strong showing at HIMSS showcases why the state is, and will remain, a leader in this growing industry.
