Denver, Colo (Dec 13, 2019) – PM360, a leading trade magazine for marketing decision makers in the pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device, and diagnostics industries, has named Healthgrades, the leading online resource for information about physicians and hospitals, as one of the most innovative Companies of 2019.

Healthgrades has a long history of innovation. Since its inception, Healthgrades built the first online physician and hospital directory so that consumers could connect with the right doctor and hospital. The company also created the healthcare CRM category and today, this platform helps the nation’s leading hospitals target and engage the right audiences. Most recently, the company launched PatientConnect Video, the first online video health solution that connects patients with local specialists who treat their conditions.

“Healthgrades is dedicated to new innovations and is always looking for ways to further our mission of helping consumers and doctors make meaningful connections,“ said Rob Draughon, CEO, Healthgrades. “We’re honored to be named alongside other innovative leaders who are driving this industry forward and helping to redefine the entire consumer healthcare journey.” 

Healthgrades was selected as part of PM360’s 8th Annual Innovations Issue published each December. This issue was established to serve as a guide to the year’s most innovative Companies, Startups, Divisions, Products, Services, and Strategies from within the healthcare and life sciences industries. This comprehensive overview of the year’s most innovative achievements in these six categories helps other companies in the industry to find potential partners and offerings that can help them advance healthcare and life sciences.

“For the past eight years, we have worked to help the industry identify the latest and most exciting advancements that facilitate change in the industry, how it operates, or offer new advancements that better serve patients, doctors, payers, and others involved,” says Anna Stashower, CEO/Publisher of PM360. “We hope this guide can serve as an important resource for the industry throughout 2020 as we all work to improve the healthcare experience for everyone involved.”
