SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Vim, a leading technology company building digital infrastructure for health plans, care providers, and the members they mutually serve, has been selected as the winner of the “Best Overall Health Informatics Solution” award in the fifth annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by MedTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global health and medical technology market.
“Our innovative technology stack combined with our unique business and growth models are driving impact at the intersection of value-based care, interoperability, and consumer and provider empowerment.”
Vim uses breakthrough technology to seamlessly connect payers to providers at health care’s last mile: clinical workflow at the point of care. Vim makes it easy for payers and other third parties to connect directly to existing provider EHRs, providing the digital infrastructure for the next generation of health care network performance. Powered by a mix of agent-based connections, robotic process automation, and dynamic API interactions, Vim’s integration engine allows for the augmentation of existing interfaces with minimal provider lift or dependencies on third-parties.
“The pace of change in cost, quality, and experience in US health care has been limited by the costs and manual nature of data and workflow connections,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “Vim is addressing this issue head-on, equipping leading health plans in the country with connective performance technology to accelerate improvements to quality, efficiency, and experience across their provider networks. Congratulations to the entire team at Vim for this incredible example of breakthrough health care technology, taking home our ‘Best Overall Health Informatics Solution’ award.”
The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work, and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Robotics, Clinical Administration, Telehealth, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), mHealth, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,850 nominations from over 17 different countries throughout the world.
“Our innovative technology stack combined with our unique business and growth models are driving impact at the intersection of value-based care, interoperability, and consumer and provider empowerment,” said Oron Afek, CEO and Co-founder of Vim. “We are extremely honored to be recognized by MedTech Breakthrough in this effort, especially in an unprecedented year like this, and we look forward to continued growth and success in the years to come.”
Vim’s Referral Guidance integrates personalized and context-aware recommendations directly into EHR referral workflows to help providers refer patients to high performing specialists. Quality and Diagnosis Gaps embed critical data on care gaps and suspected diagnoses into standard EHR encounter workflows, putting this key piece of value-based care data in the right place at the right time and assisting in clinical documentation. Digital Scheduling allows payers to connect their websites and contact centers directly to provider calendars to optimize member experience and steer to highest value network providers.
Vim currently partners with multiple regional Blues plans and two of the largest national insurers in the country. Vim recently announced strategic investments from Walgreens Boots Alliance as well as Anthem. Their national provider network is rapidly growing, and is on track to include tens of thousands of providers by the end of the year.
Founded in 2015, Vim connects data to workflow at health care’s “last mile”: within clinical operations at the point of patient care. Health plans, patients, and medical providers of every size – from independent practitioners to integrated delivery systems – use Vim software to connect data and care across the health system.
