2018 was truly an amazing year at ClearDATA. This past year, we had significant growth, developed new product offerings with Google and Microsoft, achieved Amazon Web Services Premier Partner and DevOps Competency status, furthered our HIPAA certifications and implemented several new safeguards to foster healthcare innovation regardless of increasingly complex regulations like HIPAA and GDPR.
As if that’s not enough, we also received $26 million in funding including new strategic investors Humana and Health Care Service Corporation. Now, to top it all off, we earned a spot on the Entrepreneur 360 list for Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America – for the second time – based on the five pillars of entrepreneurship — innovation, growth, leadership, impact and business valuation.
This achievement belongs to every member of the ClearDATA team, all of whom have a relentless drive to uncover emerging technologies that healthcare companies large and small can leverage to bolster innovation while protecting data privacy and improving patient outcomes. ClearDATA began with a truly entrepreneurial mindset more than seven years ago to solve basic inefficiencies in the healthcare system and better the patient journey. Our hyper-growth over the past several years is a direct result of the commitment our entire team has to our mission of making healthcare better, every single day. From helping close the time to market for drugs that can improve patient care and extend someone’s life, to offering support to hospitals during times of disaster, everything ClearDATA sets out to do is ultimately aimed at making both our community and the world a better place.
Our proven ability to foster innovation that truly makes a difference in people’s lives relies on the collaboration of our employees with healthcare organization leaders across the country. Combined, their dedication and support are transforming healthcare.
It’s an honor to be recognized for our achievements on this prestigious list as we continue to operate under the premise of thoughtful growth to make healthcare better for every patient. We are proud and committed to continue our journey as a leader in the healthcare innovation movement, and look forward to what 2019 holds.
