Scottsdale, AZ (August 15, 2012) – GlobalMed — the industry-leading, real-time healthcare delivery systems company — has for the second consecutive year been named to Inc. Magazine’s 2012 list of the nation’s 500 fastest growing private companies. This year, GlobalMed climbed into the top 100 fastest growing companies at No. 95 and into the top 10 of healthcare companies at No. 7.
Eric Schurenberg, Editor-in-Chief of Inc., stated that GlobalMed had to thrive “through three of the toughest years this economy has seen in living memory.”
Last year, GlobalMed placed 22nd on the list of 25 fastest-growing healthcare companies and 300 on the top 500 list. The latest ranking pointedly illustrates GlobalMed’s continuing success in designing unparalleled integrated telemedicine systems that provide a significant cost savings and convenience for both the patient and physician. The magazine based the ranking on the Scottsdale, Arizona-based company’s three-year growth in revenues through 2011.
“Our growing presence in the world market demonstrates the real need for the global convenience, cost-savings, and quality healthcare provided by innovative medical delivery systems—telemedicine,” said Joel E. Barthelemy, Founder and Managing Director of GlobalMed. “We continue to see the need for innovative solutions that provide better real-time data, which shows a huge improvement in the clinical decision-making process.”
GlobalMed joins a number of other distinguished companies on the top 500 list, including Microsoft, Intuit, Jamba Juice and Oracle, as well as Levi Strauss, Publix Supermarkets and Facebook, the latter three of which were added to the list this year.
Manoel Coelho, GlobalMed’s Director of Global Sales, said the United States is just one of many countries recognizing the important need for telemedicine. “The demand for telemedicine solutions outside the United States is vast as governments begin to understand how rapidly the global healthcare business model is changing,” explained Coelho. “And, they recognize the value in GlobalMed’s line of integrated telemedicine systems, including peripherals, mobile stations and image automation and cloud-based solutions that simplify patient workflow.”
An analysis of the global telemedicine market indicates that it will continue to grow at around 19 percent a year through 2015. Research and Markets of Dublin predicts future prospects are immense.
