Ankota is proud to announce that the company's CEO, Will Hicklen, has been named among the Mid-Atlantic region's Top 10 Tech CEOs in the March 2013 issue of SmartCEO Magazine. Hicklen is the only CEO of a Health IT or mHealth company to receive the distinction.
"This really is a recognition of the team's execution as things have taken off," said Hicklen. Explaining further, "We sought first to develop a web-based, mobile software platform for post acute care providers to help them improve productivity immediately and reduce operating expenses. The long term strategy has always been to develop into an enterprise class solution to coordinate entire ecosystems of providers -- this "ecosystem" model better supports Care Transitions, Population Health, and Medical Home models. It includes Hospitals and Accountable Care Organizations, by integrating care planning and coordination with care delivery. That is a real challenge to do in an otherwise disconnected world and this award is really about the entire team at Ankota getting us there."
This recognition comes on the heels of the company's early success, as Ankota was also named SmartCEO's HOT STARTUP in 2010 and appeared in the May issue that year, see news release here.
