MONT-SAINT-HILAIRE, QC, Sept. 11, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - MediaMed Technologies, a rapidly expanding Quebec business, is pleased and proud to announce that Mr. Daniel Handfield, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder, has been named as a finalist for the 2013 Desjardins Entrepreneur Awards in the "Innovation and Productivity" category. This nomination highlights the expertise, excellence and proactivity shown by Mr. Handfield and his team in the search for innovative solutions as they seek to maintain their position as a leader in technological solutions.
This distinction recognizes the innovations that have allowed MediaMed Technologies to increase its productivity, specifically with the design of Med-GPS, a computerized care performance management solution based on Lean and Six Sigma principles. "By combining all the hospital data in a common language, Med-GPS can identify costs associated with each patient. Knowing these costs enables health care institutions to compare themselves against others, to share best practices and to generate considerable savings. Med-GPS is the best way of demonstrating that it is possible to do more and better with existing resources in the current health care system," noted Mr. Daniel Handfield, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of the company.
"Innovation is one of the company values and is exemplified by all our employees. We are deeply touched at having been recognized in this category at the provincial level, and it reinforces our desire to do things differently to improve health," added Mr. Handfield.
This nomination illustrates, once again, the visionary approach and objective that MediaMed Technologies has to improve the health care system in Quebec, in particular by assessing costs per patient.
The winner will be announced on October 15, 2013, during the Gala at the Québec Hilton.
