NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Klick Health received top honors at last night’s Medical Marketing & Media (MM&M) Awards, winning the coveted Gold Award for Large Agency of the Year for the second time in three years. The award also marks the sixth time in seven years that Klick has been recognized as Agency of the Year by an industry authority.
According to MM&M, one judge said, “Klick is fun, inspiring, and dynamic and it’s set on a track for continued long-term success.” Judges were very impressed with Klick’s innovation and commitment to improving healthcare, wrote the magazine, adding that another judge said, “The SymPulseTM (Tele-Empathy) Device is an excellent way of innovating to help patients.”
“We are honored to be recognized by the industry with this award,” said Klick Co-founder and CEO Leerom Segal “It is a testament to a long list of awe-inspiring contributions that Klicksters have made and continue to make as we strive to make a meaningful difference in people’s lives.”
Klick President Lori Grant added, “We are very grateful to our growing list of clients who have entrusted us as stewards of their business and we are proud to work alongside them in advancing the state of the healthcare industry, as well as helping people live richer, longer lives.”
In its July 2018 Top 100 Agency issue, MM&M wrote, “Over the course of its 21 years, Klick Health has altered the perception of what a health marketer can do, to the extent that almost anything seems within the realm of possibility.”
Among Klick’s developments over the past year:
- One of Klick’s first incubation initiatives, Circulation, recently announced it is being acquired by LogistiCare Solutions, LLC, the nation's largest non-emergency medical transportation broker.
- The agency won two Cannes Lions Health Awards at the 2018 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity for health education and social media campaigns it created for clients.

The platform is the subject of a clinical study at the hospital to validate its effect on patient and family understanding, engagement, and satisfaction.
- A team of Klick data scientists developed algorithms that could lay the groundwork for assessing blood glucose levels 30 minutes into the future for people with Type 1 diabetes.
