If you have read this blog, you know that Michael and I don't use this platform to market for our company as we strive to focus Evidence Based on opinion and education. However, a momentous occasion happened for us last Wednesday (Feb 29) when we accepted the 2012 Innovation Award from Business Insurance at the Waldorf-Astoria in NYC for our Qualified Medical Intervention (QMI) Program.
Here is how Business Insurance describes the award: “The Business Insurance Innovation Awards is a program intended to recognize leadership, inventiveness and ingenuity in products and services designed for professional risk managers. This award was created in 2010. Organizations submit their programs and products to be judged by a neutral panel of risk managers and awards are presented in conjunction with the Risk Management Summit.”
Our CEO and founder, Jim Pritchard, gave a gracious acceptance speech in the company of eight other recipients (out of 50 total applicants). Michael was given the platform to explain our QMI Program to the 200+ risk managers in attendance. And I witnessed the objective validation by our peers of the process we have created over the past 2+ years to successfully change patients’ lives through discontinuance of inappropriate drug regimens.
We are extremely appreciative to Business Insurance for sponsoring the awards, the panel of risk managers that evaluated the proposals, and our customers whose faith in us motivates our entire team. Not only are we committed to further expanding the scope and success of our QMI outcomes in 2012, but to apply our innovative thinking to other issues and be in this same position again next year.
In this together – Mark
