Cincinnati, OH, United States, 2010/10/04 - Healthy Advice® Networks, a provider of point-of-care health-education programs for consumers & physicians announces being chosen "Company of the Year—Supplier/Vendor" at PM360’s Trailblazer Awards on Sept 24.
Healthy Advice® Networks, the nation’s leading provider of point-of-care health-education programs for consumers and physicians, is proud to announce they were chosen as “Company of the Year – Supplier/Vendor” at PM360’s Trailblazer Awards gala event held at the Mandarin Oriental in New York City on September 24.
The Trailblazer Awards Company of the Year Award honors the company that demonstrates outstanding achievement in three categories: Innovation in Marketing, Social Responsibility, and Talent Development and Retention. A panel of leaders in the industry judged all submissions and narrowed the highly competitive category down to three finalists. Winners were announced at the awards ceremony Friday evening. Healthy Advice Networks distinguished itself by being one of only a few companies selected as a finalist in two categories and also was recognized for its innovative new product, PracticeWire®, which delivers real-time health information directly into the physician’s back office, filling a previously unmet need.
“The Trailblazer Awards recognize the best work in the industry and Healthy Advice Networks far exceeded expectations,” stated Anna Stashower, Publisher of PM360. “Not only were the judges impressed by the continuous innovation in their business of health education at the point-of-care, but also by their exemplary work giving back to the community by donating air time for causes such as Haiti relief or H1N1 and for non-profits such as the March of Dimes and the Arthritis Foundation. Added to these winning points was their almost complete lack of employee turnover.”
Deborah Schnell, President, Sales and Strategic Planning at Healthy Advice Networks added, “We are proud to be recognized by PM360’s judges and privileged to serve an industry that saves lives every day. We recognize the responsibility we have to continue to innovate and deliver solutions that support our clients’ objectives of helping patients live healthier lives and achieve better health outcomes. In addition, we are doing that while creating unbeatable value for our sponsors.”
