Fierce Healthcare Names PatientPing as One of its 2021 “Fierce 15” Companies

Accolade Recognizes the Company’s Route Solution and Its Commitment to Helping Hospitals Achieve CMS CoP E-Notifications Compliance

Boston, MA—  January 11, 2021— PatientPing, the nation’s leading care collaboration platform, today announced that it has been named by Fierce Healthcare as one of the 2021 Fierce 15 companies. Representing many corners of the industry from health IT to health payers to precision medicine, Fierce 15 celebrates the spirit of being “fierce” – championing innovation and creativity, even in the face of intense competition – making PatientPing one of the most innovative and promising healthcare companies. 

Over the past year, PatientPing has added hundreds of hospitals, post-acutes, community providers, Accountable Care Organizations, provider organizations, and health plans to new and existing markets across the country, as well as introduced several new offerings to its comprehensive suite of solutions. Most notably, the introduction of Route, a single solution to ensure hospitals achieve compliance for the electronic patient event notifications (e-notifications) Condition of Participation (CoP), published as part of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Interoperability and Patient Access Rule. Route alleviates hospitals’ compliance IT and data-sharing burdens for inpatient admissions, discharges and transfers (ADT), and emergency department presentations and discharges. The solution then seamlessly delivers e-notifications to providers as identified by patients and to requesting community provider groups. 

“We’re so proud that PatientPing has been named as one of Fierce Healthcare’s Fierce 15 companies,” said Jay Desai, CEO and co-founder of PatientPing. “In light of the past year and ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, care coordination has never been more important. Sharing real-time information about patient care encounters to activate care teams plays a critical role in ensuring patients get the care they need when they need it while also introducing new levels of visibility for providers. This Fierce 15 recognition further highlights PatientPing’s ability to enable better, safer and faster treatment and care transitions for patients.”  

“In what’s been an especially challenging time, this group of Fierce 15 winners are reimagining the path forward for healthcare and leading the changes that will shape how healthcare of the future is delivered,” said Tina Reed, Fierce Healthcare’s executive editor. 

PatientPing’s mission is to connect providers to seamlessly coordinate patient care, particularly during the most vulnerable moments of a patient’s care journey. When healthcare providers struggle to collaborate with each other, patients fall through the cracks, leading to wasted resources, unnecessary procedures, and potentially patient harm. To combat this problem and improve care coordination, PatientPing has the nation’s largest network of ADT data, which links over 1,100 hospitals and 6,000 post-acute care facilities, enabling 135 million patient ADT events for 43 million covered lives across the continuum of care. This access to real-time patient data ultimately leads to improved patient outcomes.
