Gainwell Recognized for Healthcare Data Innovation in 2024 MedTech Breakthrough Awards Program

Prestigious International Annual Awards Program Honors Standout Digital Health & Medical Technology Products and Companies

IRVING, Texas – May 9, 2024 – Gainwell Technologies (Gainwell), a leading innovator in healthcare technology solutions, today announced that its modernized Immunization Information System (IIS) won the “Best Healthcare Data Repository Solution” award in the eighth annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program. MedTech Breakthrough is an independent market intelligence organization recognizing the top companies, technologies, and products in the global digital health and medical technology market.

Gainwell’s IIS elevates the use of data through advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) and analytics. The modern, scalable system enables a holistic approach to managing immunizations and has the potential to store almost unlimited data and make it more useful to public health agencies. 

Through its immunization solutions, Gainwell manages more than 1.7 billion immunization records, covering more than 163 million lives. Its flexible, cloud-based IIS captures data throughout a person’s life and identifies non-medical factors that may impede a patient, or community, from receiving vaccinations. Gainwell delivers reporting capabilities at the patient, organization, zip code, county, and state level to outline coverage rates for vaccine-preventable diseases. 

“Accurate information is needed to drive effective public health programs. Gainwell’s real-time population data helps organizations meet public health needs with greater responsiveness and preparedness,” said Steve Johansson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “Gainwell unlocks the true power of immunization systems, providing benefits in public health, health equity, and cost containment.”

The MedTech Breakthrough Awards honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work, and success in a range of health and medical technology categories. This year’s program attracted thousands of nominations from over 18 different countries. 

“Our IIS takes an integrated approach to protecting the health of both individuals and communities and more easily provides states with actionable information,” said Mark Knickrehm, Chairman and CEO of Gainwell. “In the end, greater transparency into public information enables better health outcomes for people across all ages.”

With an up-to-date immunization data infrastructure, public health agencies can exchange information with providers in real time. Public health departments can track immunization status and verification, manage vaccine inventory, and make data-driven decisions for populations through advanced analytics. Agencies are also equipped to execute creative initiatives, such as gap identification and targeted outreach. On the consumer side, patients can easily access their immunization records, health screenings, and resources.
