ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 12, 2012-- The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) recently announced IPG, a leading nationwide provider of Implantable Device Benefit Management (DBM) solutions as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. TAG, the state's leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia's technology industry will recognize this elite group at the 2012 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 28, 2012, at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, Georgia.
"The Top 40 companies are shining examples of what makes Georgia a hotbed for innovation in technology," said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. "Georgia is home to more than 13,000 technology companies, so we applaud the 2012 Top 40 finalists for standing out as leaders in innovation and in Georgia's technology community. These are the types of companies that will help Georgia become recognized as one of the top states in the nation for technology." Today, healthcare providers are increasingly challenged with managing multiple service lines for high cost implantable medical devices. The release of IPG's breakthrough technology, INSIGHTTM Device Management System (INSIGHTTM) has helped IPG's Case Management staff more easily collect and assess critical data in the case referral process.
Subsequently, IPG launched a customer-facing version of the technology, myINSIGHTTM in March 2011. A purely web-based platform, myINSIGHTTM provides significant capability and functionality to IPG's customers, while also making a substantial difference in how they can perform in the device management marketplace.
"As a strategic partner, IPG continues to expand their infrastructure and aggressively deploy key technology to deliver added efficiencies to customers, mitigate the risks and simplify operations related to implants. The IPG myINSIGHTTM technology provides a solution that makes it easy for hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers to securely exchange timely information with IPG, while leveraging existing technologies they use today," said Marty Smith, Chief Information Officer for IPG.
"We are honored to be recognized by TAG for our contributions toward strengthening Georgia's technology leadership, and we are committed to supporting the state's economic development by continuing to aggressively deploy technology to improve efficiency in the delivery and management of medical device therapies." About the Award TAG'S Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based companies for their degree of innovation, the scope and financial impact of their innovations and effect of such innovation in promoting Georgia's technology industry throughout the U.S. and globally.
