The Shams Group (TSG) announced today that it has been selected as a finalist in this year’s Fierce Innovation Awards: Healthcare Edition, an awards program from the publisher of FierceHealthIT, FierceHealthcare, and FierceMobileHealthcare. TSG was recognized as a finalist in the category of Population Health Management.
We were selected as a finalist for our innovative, industry leading product, Patient Kiosk.
Finalists were selected by a distinguished panel of CIOs from renowned U.S. hospitals and healthcare systems, including Allina Health, Rush University Medical Center, Mayo Clinic and JFK Health System. A complete list of judges can be found at https://www.fierceinnovationawards.com/healthcare/2014/judges.
The Fierce Innovation Awards recognize pioneering technologies and solutions that will catapult healthcare delivery into new realms. “Our finalists represent the exciting innovation happening in the healthcare industry today,” said Wendy Johnson, FierceMarkets’ healthcare group publisher. “These companies have developed game-changing technologies and solutions that can improve safety, efficiency and patient outcomes.”
All applications were evaluated based on the following criteria: quality of care and patient outcomes, care efficiency, financial impact, market validation and overall innovative “fierceness.” Finalists were selected based on calculation of the judges’ scores in each area.
We are honored to be recognized as a finalist at this year’s Fierce Innovation Awards for the Population Health Management category. We have implemented our Patient Kiosk at Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH) and have had great success taking it live. With 80-90% patient adoption in the ED, GBGH has transformed the patient experience and intake process – saving on average 2-4 minutes per patient.
Additionally, GBGH staff had wonderful things to say about their experience in working with The Shams Group: “Honestly, out of all the vendors I have worked with in my life both personally and work wise I haven’t met a better group than TSG. They actually do what they say, they are responsive to our needs/requests. They treat us well, they make changes that may not have been in scope quickly and we never get grief about it. Their staff are long term employees, that seem to be treated well! Everyone I have interacted with are all on the same customer service page.” – Application Specialist at GBGH
Our endeavors have been recognized at ACEP’s Innovate ED 2014, where our Patient Kiosk was a huge success. Our mission is to assist healthcare organizations to leverage information technology that will improve their care process and increase their patient and physician satisfaction.
