medical collaboration in the New York TImesClickCare and Four Other Innovative Companies in the New York Times

ClickCare is proud to be listed as a top innovative and disruptive company by The New York Times. The reporter Eilene Zimmerman was extremely careful about being accurate and was doing fact-checking right up to 10 PM the night before the online version was published. The next morning, the article also appeared in the print edition. The combination of the five companies was really quite interesting. Each looked at the elephant of healthcare from a different perspective. Readers were enthusiastic about the innovations.

Last month, Medical Office Today chose and published "8 Popular Apps for Medical Practices". ClickCare was the poster child for the graphic and the only one that focused on collaboration. The author, Daniel Casciato, noted, "smartphones and tablets continue to be game-changing communication and interactive tools for medical practices today. As a result, the market is flooded with apps to pair with your latest technology gadget." To be singled out as one of 8 is an honor.

Sara Jackson, editor of FierceMobileHealthcare, a well respected health newsletter, summarized both The New York Times and the Medical Office Today articles and noted that they "contained some intriguing financial tidbits, indicating how the new companies will actually make money on their new creations."

A Broader Perspective

We obsess about every aspect of what we do as we work to improve collaboration on behalf of the patient. Thus, we would have loved to have seen something more than "how they make money."

We care strongly about social impact. We also focus on the number of patients who have been helped, the number of physicians who become less stressed, more satisfied and enthusiastic, and the number of learners who can see what they would have otherwise missed.

Caring about social impact can sometimes be too big to deal with. So, as you use iClickCare, irrespective of your role in the healthcare hierarchy, you will notice the immense satisfaction of helping a single patient. That act of helping can come in different forms -- access to care that would not have been available, faster and easier diagnoses, less pain with wound care, and "Great Case Cures."

As the healthcare debate intensifies, and accountable care, coordination of care, and medical homes come more and more to the fore, it will be ever more important to count things other than dollars saved or made.
