ANDOVER, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IDG's CIO today announces Injured Workers Pharmacy (IWP) as a recipient of the 2016 CIO 100. The 29th annual award program recognizes organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in information technology (IT).
"Delivering innovation and business value are top priorities for CIOs everywhere, and our CIO 100 awards program celebrates the leading IT organizations that excel at both," said Maryfran Johnson, Editor in Chief of CIO Events. "Our 2016 winners are raising the bar even higher this year with their outstanding work in digital transformation, customer focus and IT-business collaboration."
IWP implemented two innovative solutions focused on streamlining prescription management and improving care for their pharmacy patients. These combined solutions simplify new patient enrollment, the prescription management process and facilitate the interaction between patient, physician and pharmacy.
“We are very proud to be recognized by CIO for the focus we have placed on technology to help our patients get healthy and back to a productive life. Patient Experience is an important part of the healing process and using technology to help make the medication management process easier for our patients has to always be a priority for us,” said Ken Martino, President & CEO for Injured Workers Pharmacy.
“It’s an honor to accept such a prestigious award on behalf of the IT and business teams who contributed to the success of our innovative patient centric solution. We sometimes think of ourselves as being the David amongst the Goliaths in the pharmacy management space and we challenge ourselves every day to come up with clever ways for IWP to prevail and be recognized as our patients advocate. Being selected as a 2016 CIO 100 winner is an incredible testament to our digital strategy and recognizes the results we’ve achieved through our pragmatic and innovative use of technology,” said Lee Cappola, VP – Information Technology.
About the CIO 100
Recipients of this year's CIO 100 Award were selected through a three-step process. First, companies filled out an online application form detailing their innovative IT and business initiatives. Next, a team of external judges (many of them former CIOs) reviewed the applications in depth, looking for leading-edge IT practices and measurable results. Finally, CIO editors reviewed the judges' evaluations and selected the final 100.
Coverage of the 2016 CIO 100 Awards will be available online at CIO.com on August 1, 2016 and in the August issue of CIO's digital magazine.
