BETHESDA, Md., March 28, 2017 – GetWellNetwork®, Inc., the leader in Interactive Patient Care™ (IPC) solutions, hit a new milestone with the number of patients using its technology to engage in their health care: 3.75 million inpatients and 900,000 outpatients for a total of 4.6 million patients in 2016. This milestone was made possible through a seventh consecutive year of significant growth for the company – GetWellNetwork added more than 100 new client facilities and expansions last year and extended its cross-continuum patient engagement platform to more than 150 clinics nationwide with the acquisition of Seamless Medical Systems earlier this year.
“We are very proud of this milestone at GetWellNetwork. Our reach and growing asset of patient data is unique in the noisy ‘patient engagement’ world, and our scale enables us to push innovation and provide these increasingly important solutions cost-effectively to our provider community as their needs evolve,” said Michael O’Neil, founder and CEO, GetWellNetwork. “We are delighted to be the partner of choice for a growing community of health care systems, hospitals and clinics that are leading care delivery innovation, and we are excited to continue shaping the future of the patient experience together with them.”
GetWellNetwork has expanded its presence in the pediatric space, seen significant adoption of its mobile data collection tool, Marbella, and continued to move into the international market. The company added to its pediatric client community of more than 50 organizations, which now includes eight hospitals of the top ten on U.S. News & World Report’s Honor Roll of Best Children’s Hospitals.
