BIRMINGHAM, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Guideway Care (Guideway), an innovative healthcare company dedicated to advancing health equity, optimizing patient outcomes and lowering the total costs of healthcare episodes , today announced it ranked 83 on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech, and energy tech companies in North America, now in its 29th year. This is the second year in a row that Guideway has been listed.
Craig Parker, CEO, Guideway, credited this achievement to Guideway’s deep understanding of the complex landscape of the patient care journey, the impact of social determinants of health (SDoH) and non-clinical issues that pose barriers to accessing care and staying on track. Guideway’s specially trained and highly skilled care guides serve as a critical extension of a hospital or health system’s clinical team to resolve non-clinical issues, providing a “human touch” for a variety of health equity initiatives including chronic care management, wellness and screening efforts, readmission prevention and other programs to improve overall health while reducing costs.
"Our mission is to advance health equity, optimize patient outcomes and drive down healthcare costs,” said Parker. “This recognition from Deloitte underscores the substantial impact of our efforts in revolutionizing and enhancing the efficiency of the healthcare sector. Care guidance represents the optimal blend of human and technological elements, enabling personalized and meaningful peer-to-patient relationships and bespoke communication. It empowers patients and their families with the vital support necessary to maintain adherence to treatment throughout their healthcare journey. Medicare recently said social determinants account for 50% or more of a person’s overall heath and well-being, and we help healthcare providers stay connected to patients on the topics that can make the biggest difference in their overall journey.”
“Each year we look forward to reviewing the progress and innovations of our Technology Fast 500 winners. This year is especially celebratory as we expand the number of winners to better represent just how many companies are developing new ideas to progress our society and the world, especially during a slow economy,” said Paul Silverglate, vice chair, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology sector leader. “While software and services and life sciences continue to dominate the top 10, we are encouraged to see other categories making their mark. Congratulations to all the winners who show us how creativity, hard work and perseverance can lead to success.”
“As for growing companies, it’s always rewarding to be recognized for the ongoing commitment it takes to navigate obstacles, transform when necessary and ultimately create a thriving business,” said Christie Simons, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP and industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications within Deloitte’s audit and assurance practice. “Over the nearly 30 years we’ve been compiling the Technology Fast 500, we’ve seen new categories emerge, growth rates explode, and certain regional markets shine from the bright talent they attract. We are proud of all the winners for achieving this well-deserved honor.”
