“Twenty-one companies won across 20 categories, which is a phenomenal turnout,” HME Business Publisher and Executive Editor David Kopf remarked. “Moreover, we had a really diverse set of products and services winning awards. They covered a spectrum ranging from smart accessibility solutions to really smart business services that help providers thrive in a changing healthcare and reimbursement landscape.
Thanks to every company who entered,” he added. “The competition was fierce in some categories, and some terrific solutions that got narrowly edged out.”
Kopf also thanked this year’s judges.
“Every year our judges take time out of their busy schedules to review and score our entries,” he said. “From the outset we wanted these awards to be from the providers and for the providers, so it wouldn’t be possible without their generosity with their time and expertise. Thank you!”
