Alight Solutions, a leading cloud-based provider of integrated digital human capital and business solutions, has been selected as the winner of the “TeleHealth Innovation Award” in the fifth annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program. The independent market intelligence organization tracks leading technologies and products in the global health and medical market, and the awards program relies on an expert panel of judges to identify breakthrough innovations.
Alight’s platform for virtual expert medical opinions received recognition for its proprietary technology that allows for two or more physician specialists to collaborate on rendering an opinion for the most complex cases — often involving oncology or musculoskeletal-related diagnoses. The platform enables Alight’s expert physician network, made up of over 2,000 of the nation’s top specialists, to work together on assigned cases, coordinating responses to the patient’s questions by specialty area, and delivering a multidisciplinary opinion in unison. The expert multidisciplinary team is also available to individuals on an ongoing basis, as well as to their treating providers for peer-to-peer consultations.
“Alight is up-leveling the telehealth and virtual care landscape by empowering patients and providers with a breakthrough platform for multidisciplinary teams of expert physicians, nurses, and clinicians to collaborate on delivering streamlined guidance,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “We extend our sincere congratulations to the entire Alight team for decisively winning our ‘TeleHealth Innovation Award.’”
The MedTech Breakthrough Awards honor excellence and recognize innovation, hard work, and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Robotics, Clinical Administration, Telehealth, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), mHealth, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. The program attracted more than 3,850 nominations from nearly 20 countries.
