Florence Healthcare Recognized as the Biggest Impact Company in Georgia at 2021 Georgia Technology Summit
By enabling remote research that powers COVID-19 vaccine research, Florence’s innovations have local and global impact
ATLANTA (May 3, 2021) – Florence Healthcare, the leading platform for electronic document and data workflow management and remote connectivity in clinical trials, has been selected as the Biggest Impact Company in Georgia by the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG). This recognition is in addition to being named to TAG’s 2021 Top 10 Innovative Companies in Georgia.
The Top 10 companies were selected from the Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies competition and presented at the 2021 Georgia Technology Summit in April. The Top 40 recognition is awarded based on specific criteria focused on innovation, including degree of innovation, scope and financial impact of innovation and likelihood of success. Eligible companies must be Georgia-based and focused on the creation, development and dissemination of technology. During the summit, Florence was voted and selected for the additional Biggest Impact Company award.
Since 2014, Florence has helped clinical research sponsors, contract research organizations and clinical research sites by advancing trials through software for managing document and data flow between sites and sponsors. Florence has always been at the forefront of innovation in the industry and saw an opportunity over the past year to solve inefficiency in the clinical trial process – data review and verification. Through its Remote Site Monitoring technology, Florence addresses these inefficiencies, enables hybrid and decentralized trials and supports greater patient outcomes.
“Florence’s innovations not only impact the local Georgia ecosystem, but support meaningful work that benefits the global community – specifically by enabling remote research that powers COVID-19 vaccine research,” states Florence CEO Ryan Jones. “Atlanta is home to some of the very best in medicine and research, and we’re thankful to play a part in the industry while supporting the crucial work of clinical researchers during this time.
To continue innovating at this level, Florence has plans to grow its team of mission-driven employees and is currently hiring for several positions.
The entire Top 10 list is comprised of Florence Healthcare, Codoxo, MileAuto, PadSplit, Roadie, Stord, Ternio, Verusen, Voxie and Ware2Go. Details about each company and the Georgia Technology Summit can be found here.
