Modernizing Medicine Named to Red Herring’s Top 100 North America List

Modernizing Medicine, Inc., creator of the Electronic Medical Assistant® (EMA™), a cloud-based, specialty-specific electronic medical record (EMR) system, announced today that it was named to Red Herring’s Top 100 North America list. The prestigious, annual list recognizes the top private companies across the continent that are expected to achieve significant growth in the near future.

Winners were selected based on a number of criteria, including market size, number of customers and users, venture investment and social contribution. The companies were recognized at an event on May 16, where entrepreneurs, corporate strategists and venture financiers also gathered to discuss topics of importance to their companies, including what it takes to be an entrepreneur and the qualities of leading technology companies.

“We are honored to be named to the Top 100 North America list,” said Daniel Cane, President and CEO of Modernizing Medicine. “As we continue to grow and expand upon EMA’s capabilities, it is incredibly encouraging to receive international recognition, and we thank Red Herring for its support.”

The win comes shortly after IBM announced that it selected Modernizing Medicine to join the IBM Watson Ecosystem. The exclusive group is comprised of only a handful of companies that are developing Watson-powered apps to bring a level of cognitive computing technological sophistication to their products. Modernizing Medicine’s schEMA powered by IBM Watson app enables the practice of evidence-based medicine by physicians at the point of care.
