Posted by Ken Accardi

May 5, 2010 11:50:00 AM

Ankota's rapid rise and relentless focus on ROI for its customers is recognized in SmartCEO Magazine's Annual Circle of Excellence Awards
 
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND - "We are thrilled to be named the HOT STARTUP by SmartCEO Magazine," said company CEO and co-founder, Will Hicklen. "SmartCEO follows the most dynamic companies in the Mid-Atlantic region-this is an exciting recognition that we are growing a successful company that addresses immediate needs for home healthcare companies," said Hicklen. SmartCEO's Circle of Excellence Awards event will be held on May 12, 2010 at the Intercontinental Harbor Court Hotel in Baltimore from 6:00-9:00p.m. Several customers and leaders in the healthcare community will join Ankota in the celebration.

SmartCEO Awards Ankota Hot Startup of 2010

"The secret to Ankota's early success is its relentless focus on immediate ROI for its clients-something the struggling healthcare industry can embrace," writes Jeanine Clingenpeel in the May 2010 feature story. Ankota's technology is usually self-funding in the first quarter of use. Customers typically see immediate reductions in certain operating expenses, increase their capacity with existing staff, and accelerate billing by days or even weeks.
 
"Circle of Excellence winners are not only selected and honored for their accomplishments, but for demonstrating success in applying unique leadership attributes that significantly benefits their business and the community," said Craig Burris, Publisher at SmartCEO Magazine. "We are honored to recognize Will Hicklen as one of Greater Baltimore's standout leaders." The full article is available online http://www.smartceo.com/content/digitalba0510
Hicklen credits the company's early success to an all-star leadership team that includes Dr. Hunter Young, a physician at Johns Hopkins and the company's Chief Medical Officer, Ken Accardi, Chief Technology Officer and veteran CIO from GE Healthcare, and Marc Ottinger, formerly of Anderson Consulting, who is COO. Ankota is Hicklen's fourth software startup, the last, iLumin, was successfully sold to Computer Associates.
 
The idea for Ankota came to Will while helping his wife, Sandy, during her three year battle with cancer. Hicklen's frustrations over coordinating her care illuminated an inefficient system with tremendous opportunity to improve care planning and execution.
 
His 20+ years experience with supply chain technologies and business performance management gave him a unique perspective. "There are great people in healthcare who are very committed to what they do, but they are saddled with a system that forces them to spend time doing unproductive things. This is incredibly inefficient and costly to the system." Adding, "These are problems that we have solved in other industries."

NEWS FROM ANKOTA CUSTOMER CHESAPEAKE MEDICAL STAFFING

Posted by Ken Accardi

Apr 30, 2010 1:25:00 PM

The news article below was released by Ankota customer Chesapeake Medical Staffing, who are using Ankota's Private Duty Agency software to expand their business.

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND (April 20, 2010) -  In today's challenging climate, with hospitals less busy than in past years and with labor more abundant due to the recession, the focus is clearly on ways to cut costs.  This trend creates a unique situation for companies such as Chesapeake Medical Staffing because the demand for outsourcing in the hospital sector has decreased yet the need for expert medical help has not.  Chesapeake Medical Staffing announced today that they will be significantly expanding their business into the home care and private duty sectors.

Chesapeake Medical Staffing

"We must be able to reinvent ourselves and meet the new needs of the changing healthcare industry, so that we remain relevant and necessary.  In order to move forward and find new markets for our business, we have made a decision to expand into the home care and private duty sectors, which will be booming in the coming years," said Terri Weller, President and Chief Clinical Officer.  She added," We already have highly trained nurses, many of whom are experts in acute care, so they can easily transfer into the home care setting."

Chesapeake Medical Staffing currently has technology and software that works effectively for hospital staffing, but with this expansion, needed specific technology that will address home care and private duty.  Creating new technology can be costly and take time to develop so Chesapeake Medical Staffing conducted research and found Ankota, Inc., a national company offering Healthcare Delivery Management (HDM) that could be implemented right away because it is Software-as-a-Service.

"In this competitive market, many companies are seeking much needed technology to help them save money and be more profitable.  We are able to help immediately.  Ankota helps with care planning, scheduling, resource optimization, resource tracking with multiple devices including mobile phones,  In addition, Ankota allows for real-time escalation of care concerns, tracking and paperless reporting "says Ankota CEO and co-founder, Will Hicklen. "It's a great partnership and allows us to help our clients achieve their ultimate mission, better patient care."
