Phreesia, 2011 iAward Winner for Healthcare Innovation, to Judge 2012 iAward Finalists

The patient check-in company, winner of Triple Tree’s 2011 iAward for Operational Effectiveness, will sit on panel to judge rising stars in the wireless health sector.

New York, N.Y.— May 22, 2012—Previous winner of the Triple Tree iAward for Operational Effectiveness, Phreesia CEO Chaim Indig will sit on the judging panel for the 2012 iAward. The winners in each of three categories—including Operational Effectiveness, Clinical Application and Consumer Experience—will be announced on May 24, 2012 at the annual Wireless Health Convergence Summit in San Diego, Calif. 

Last year, Phreesia was selected as the iAward winner based on its solution for reducing costs and improving operational efficiency in medical practices. Phreesia, the leader in patient check-in, replaces the traditional patient clipboard and digitizes the check-in process for patients and practice staff with its wireless, touchscreen PhreesiaPad. The solution captures complete patient information, verifies insurance in real time during check-in and automatically asks patients to pay their copayments and balances directly on the PhreesiaPad. Phreesia is HIPAA-compliant and captures electronic signatures on all required consent forms, and it integrates with existing practice management and electronic health record systems to maximize efficiency. Now used by thousands of medical practices and millions of patients nationwide, Phreesia increases cash flow, streamlines the check-in process and engages patients at the point of care to improve patient-clinician dialogue and enhance overall quality of care.

TripleTree is an independent, research-driven investment banking firm focused on mergers and acquisitions, financial restructuring and principal investing advisory services for innovative, high-growth businesses in the healthcare industry. Recognizing innovation, insight and initiative in the wireless life sciences industry, TripleTree’s fourth annual iAward will showcase the top companies that aim to improve healthcare delivery through wireless communication technologies. Among the 12 finalists are CureMD, Silverlink, Mobile Heartbeat and Telcare.

Says Indig, “Phreesia is honored to be among the distinguished group of panelists judging this year’s Triple Tree iAward. The 12 finalists are true pioneers in the field of wireless healthcare solutions, and their accomplishments can be measured by the rapid advancements we’re seeing in the healthcare industry today. I wish them all the best of luck!”
