ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Atlanta Business Chronicle recently named Ingenious Med as one of Atlanta’s top 100, fastest growing, privately-owned companies. The publication recognizes companies for their “unconventional methods and top speed growth,” demonstrating stability, adaptability, and sustained, explosive successes year-over-year. This was the third consecutive year that Ingenious Med was recognized as a “Pacesetter.”
Ingenious Med provides IM1, the premier patient encounter platform, unifying communication, coding, revenue, and business intelligence into a single easily integrated solution for 30,000 users at 900+ healthcare facilities across the U.S. The company has seen a three-year sales growth of 229 percent.
Additionally, for the last five years, the Atlanta-based company grew its staff by 40 percent a year, which contributed significantly to the cities’ STEM job boom. Ingenious Med frequently hires candidates from within the community and partners with The Georgia Institute of Technology to introduce college students to healthcare IT.
“The Atlanta business community has been incredibly supportive to us as we’ve grown from a small startup to a nationally recognized enterprise. It’s important to pay that support forward by investing in the Atlanta technology community, and specifically young professionals who aspire for careers in STEM,” said S. Hart Williford, president and CEO of Ingenious Med. “As we continue to expand our offerings, it’s essential we continue to hire smart, talented and passionate people. Fortunately there isn’t a lack of those attributes in Atlanta.”
Aside from growing its team, the company also forged several key partnerships throughout the year, expanding its reach in the healthcare industry. Due to the success of its IM1 platform and roster of premier clients, Ingenious Med secured a majority stake investment from North Bridge Growth Equity, a leading growth equity firm focused on investing in high-growth technology companies, in October 2014. Following this acquisition, Ascension Ventures, Heritage Group and Kaiser Permanente Ventures have recently invested in the company as well. Their support, along with that of North Bridge, will aid in accelerating Ingenious Med’s disruptive impact and growth as it expands clinician alignment offerings in 2015.
