Digital Assent to Represent Georgia at HIMSS 2014
Company joins eight other health IT companies in the Georgia Pavilion (Booth 4021)
ATLANTA and ORLANDO – February 19, 2014 – Digital Assent is proud to announce their invitation by the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) and the Metro Atlanta Chamber (MAC) to represent the State of Georgia at the HIMSS 2014 Annual Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Florida.
“We are honored to represent our state on the health IT industry’s largest national stage and look forward to showcasing our new software as a service (SaaS) DocScores™ platform, which gives hospital and healthcare system marketers the ability to extract valuable consumer marketing data from their patient satisfaction surveys,” said Andrew Ibbotson, founder and CEO of Digital Assent. “We’re also excited to demonstrate the capabilities of our tablet-based PatientPad solution, which enables physicians to capture real-time feedback from patients at the point of care.”
Digital Assent’s PatientPad® system is the healthcare industry’s first in-office solution for capturing online reviews and testimonials from patients. Once collected, these patient endorsements can be easily published to the doctor’s website and Facebook page, Google search results, and popular ratings websites like Healthgrades, Vitals, Yelp and DocScores.com. Founded in Atlanta by two serial entrepreneurs from Georgia Tech, Digital Assent has more than 1,000 physician customers using its innovative technology – including private practices, urgent care clinics, hospitals and regional healthcare systems.
Georgia is the nation’s health IT capital and has a long-standing tradition of expertise in health technology innovation. Both the Georgia Department of Economic Development and the Metro Atlanta Chamber have made the Georgia Pavilion a possibility with their shared vision of promoting the development and growth of local healthcare technology companies. Digital Assent is one of eight Georgia-based health IT companies who will be representing the state at this year’s conference.
