Best in Biz Awards is the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts. More than 400 entries were received in this year’s awards program, from a wide array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and regions in the U.S. and Canada.
The eHealthcare Leadership Awards program was developed and first presented 13 years ago by eHealthcare Strategy & Trends, a leading industry resource published by Health Care Communications, Rye, NY. The Sixteenth Annual Healthcare Internet Conference was sponsored by Greystone.Net, an Atlanta-based strategy firm. Winners of platinum, gold, silver, and distinction awards represented 18 industry classifications, from hospitals and health systems to pharmaceutical firms and online health companies. Awards were given in 14 different categories.
OpenQ’s SafeGuard™ is a breakthrough compliance solution for managing social enterprise compliance risk. This patent-pending technology allows regulated companies facing multi-faceted compliance and regulatory risks to consolidate internal and external feeds and shared files from social media and other collaboration tools. SafeGuard™ can accurately and compliantly archive, proactively identify vulnerability, and analyze risk with real-time alerts and message quarantine capabilities that enable fast review and remediation. Language processing capabilities delivers identified risks to an intuitive interface that enables the efficient management and follow-through for compliance cases.
Comments on the news
“Receiving an award for a new product is great, but it really demonstrates the value of OpenQ’s experience in regulatory and legal compliance across hundreds of customer projects,” said Otavio Freire, OpenQ’s Chief Technology Officer. “OpenQ has been creating technology solutions for social-mobile compliance for regulated industries since 2006, and SafeGuard is already protecting hundreds of companies from social media compliance risks, a growing concern that is keeping organizations from really benefitting from social technology.”
OpenQ’s President, Jim Zuffoletti, added,“We’re thrilled the value provided to our customers enabled OpenQ to receive a gold for business process improvement. All of OpenQ’s products enable businesses to recognize the true value of social-mobile technologies in heavily regulated environments.”
