Each year, the most innovative companies in the health-tech industry are selected to this elite group by the Journal of mHealth’s editorial and advisory team based on quantitative and qualitative metrics.

The first independent organization to provide clinical services for ICU patients via telemedicine, Advanced ICU Care pioneered a new approach to critical care. With over 12 years of experience and as the largest tele-ICU provider in the U.S, Advanced ICU Care utilizes innovative technology to deliver 24/7 intensivist collaboration and a sustainable method for hospitals to provide the highest standard of care to ICU patients. This high-tech/high-touch collaboration with bedside clinicians has led to length-of-stay and mortality rates that are 30% below actuarial predictions, which translates to Advanced ICU Care helping to save up to five lives every day. The company is honored to be acknowledged for the value its collaborative high acuity telemedicine services provided to over 65 partner hospitals in 25 states nationwide.

In the last four years, the Global Digital Health 100 has become an international benchmark of innovation, recognizing companies that have the greatest potential to change healthcare delivery models. Honorees demonstrate strong disruptive impact, proof of concept, technology innovation, social value, effectiveness, execution of strategy, and industry integration.
