Hard Work Pays Off For The Global Population Health Management Platform As Patientory Is Named Start-up Company of the Year At Metro Atlanta Chamber Awards & Health Tech Upstarter By Technology Association Of Georgia
Atlanta – (November 07, 2017) – Blockchain healthcare company, Patientory, has today revealed that it has won two prestigious awards. The first award is the Phoenix Award for Start-up Company of the Year.
The awards recognize individuals and companies that have made an outstanding contribution to the growth of the health IT industry in Georgia. The phoenix represents the iconic “rising from the ashes,” and the awards celebrate strength, tenacity, and leadership demonstrated by finalists.
Founded by medical researcher-turned-entrepreneur Chrissa McFarlane in 2016, Patientory’s blockchain-enabled solution empowers consumers to take charge of their health by providing a highly secure, single platform to share and manage their healthcare information with providers and healthcare organizations.
“Patientory’s leading work in securing and maintaining health information in real time helps professionals in Atlanta and elsewhere provide the most effective care. Using blockchain technology, they are able to protect our most sensitive and personal records,” said Kornelius Bankston, director of Bioscience Ecosystem Expansion, Metro Atlanta Chamber.
This award win was quickly followed by the company being named Health Tech Upstarter in the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) Awards as well. Having raised USD $7.2 million in just three days earlier this year, Patientory is continuing to add partners such as the Blockcypher-Dash partnership announced this summer. The company also has plans to expand its coverage beyond the United States into international markets.
“We are thrilled to be recognized in these two high profile award programmes,” commented CEO and founder Chrissa McFarlane.
“We’re passionate about providing a solution that supports better healthcare outcomes through improved data access and management, and are honored to have our efforts recognized,” concluded McFarlane.
