BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - June 09, 2015) - Aventura, the leading provider of situational awareness technology for the healthcare industry, today announced it has been named a 2015 Red Herring Top 100 North America Tech Startup. Aventura was selected from among hundreds of finalists at the Red Herring Top 100 North America event held June 1-3 in San Diego.
"At Aventura, we are all about getting care providers to patient information as quickly, securely and easily as possible," said John Gobron, CEO of Aventura. "This award from Red Herring further underscores our position as a healthcare IT innovator and affirms the traction we have built in the marketplace over the past several years. We look forward to continuing this momentum and working with healthcare delivery organizations to improve caregiver satisfaction, IT security and the adoption of EHR and health intelligence applications."
Aventura's situational awareness platform enables real-time bidirectional interaction and intelligent harmonization of digital clinical assets at the point of care. Via a simple badge tap, care providers are quickly identified, along with their location within a facility, what device they are working on and what patient they are treating. Aventura immediately delivers a virtual desktop and dynamically provisions the applications and exact screens a user needs based on their security privileges and the patient in care. Aventura's platform leverages strong authentication and Single Sign-On to deliver fast access along with a distributed rules engine that optimizes workflow by keeping complex events in order, managing individual computing experiences, connecting 3rd-party applications in real time and influencing contextual events at the point-of-care. Aventura holds 7 patents for its technology and processes.
The Red Herring Top 100 North America award recognizes the leading private companies from the United States and Canada, celebrating these startups' innovations and technologies across their respective industries. Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technological innovation and intellectual property, DNA of the executive team, business model, customer footprint and addressable market.
"In 2015, selecting the top achievers was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the North America winners. We believe Aventura embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture."
