BOSTON, Oct. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Seniorlink, a leading provider of care collaboration solutions, is pleased to announce that it was the winner of the 2017 TripleTree iAward for Clinical Collaboration, one of three awards that recognize healthcare technology companies with the capability to drive innovation across the industry.
For more than 15 years, Seniorlink has pioneered solutions that help risk-bearing provider and payer organizations to deliver high-quality, person-centered care more efficiently, resulting in better outcomes at lower costs to the overall healthcare system. Seniorlink leverages interdisciplinary care teams, family caregivers and technology platforms, such as their most recent innovation, Vela.
The TripleTree iAward is given to companies based on the uniqueness of their product offering, marketplace traction and business growth, as well as the size of the total addressable market. The award acknowledges the efforts of healthcare industry entrepreneurs and innovators in delivering new capabilities that advance and accelerate transformations that improve outcomes and lower costs through care delivery outside of the hospital setting.
"We would like to thank TripleTree for recognizing the pioneering work the team at Seniorlink has done on behalf of state Medicaid plans and health plans," said President and Chief Executive Officer Thomas Riley. "As an innovator of care collaboration solutions, we serve patients and family caregivers by partnering with provider and payer organizations to augment existing care management capabilities through solutions that leverage human touch and technology. Through the years, we have saved programs more than $400 million, while demonstrating improved outcomes across reduced hospitalizations, ER visits and reduced falls risk."
Seniorlink is continuing to promote collaboration through the development of its technology platform, Vela. This technology helps care teams to reach, engage and support caregivers in the delivery of high-quality, person-centered care. Vela meets the demand for coordinated care for high-risk, complex patient populations by encouraging seamless, real-time collaboration among all members of a patient's care team, resulting in better outcomes at lower costs.
"We are pleased to include Seniorlink among our 2017 winners as the company demonstrated leadership and initiative as it helped to solve meaningful issues in the healthcare industry," said Michael Carroll, Chief Marketing Officer at TripleTree.
This is the ninth consecutive year that TripleTree has presented the iAward. Seniorlink will be invited to Minneapolis for an interactive session with TripleTree professionals, innovators and industry leaders as part of the award.
