Callibra, Inc. dba Discharge 1-2-3 is Named Winner of 2011 Chicago Innovation Award

CHICAGO, Nov. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Callibra, Inc. dba Discharge 1-2-3 of Schaumburg, IL has been named one of the ten winners of the 2011 Chicago Innovation Awards for their Discharge 1-2-3 Composer™.

The winners were announced at an event held at Chicago's Harris Theater on Tuesday, November 8, with more than 1400 people attending.  The Chicago Innovation Awards, celebrating its 10th year, is the Chicago region's foremost recognition of the most innovative new products or services brought to market or to public service each year.  

The Discharge 1-2-3 Composer, utilizing patent pending technology, allows Emergency Physicians fast "point and click creation" of custom patient instructions in multiple languages. The efficiency of the product can reduce physician time on this mundane task as much as 1 1/2 hours per physician, per shift, while breaking down language barriers between emergency departments and patients. Emergency Medicine clinicians need to create patient instructions on a "patient specific" basis as much as possible without compromise of time. Patient Discharge Instructions inform the patient what their diagnoses were, educate them about their illness, provide clear guidelines for how to continue their care at home, and most important, when to seek further medical attention. The Discharge 1-2-3 Composer has already been licensed by leading Information System Vendors as an exclusive component for creation of patient Discharge Instructions and is available separately as well. The software functions the way clinicians think facilitating a speed and ease of use that is simply unsurpassed. Clinicians rave about the usability and the improvement in patient understanding.

"The new products and services brought to market in the Chicago region each year represent the most important economic engine driving the new economy," said Thomas D. Kuczmarski, Co-Founder with Chicago journalist Dan Miller of the awards.  "The economy is challenging but each nominee believes the simple truth that a powerful new product will find a rewarding market and each has the courage to pursue their vision."

"We are extraordinarily proud to be a winner of the Chicago Innovation Award.  To be recognized as one of the Top 10 innovators in the Chicago area from such a talented and diverse field of more than 400 nominees is an amazing accomplishment," said Dr. Christopher Galassi, CEO and Technical Director of Callibra, Inc.  "Chicago is a city built on innovation and allows us great opportunity".

Callibra, Inc. will join the other winners of this year's Chicago Innovation Awards in ringing the opening bell of the NASDAQ stock market in New York City on November 15, an opportunity provided by TechAmerica, a sponsor of the Awards.  "It is one way of carrying the message of Chicago innovation to other parts of the nation," said Luke Tanen, Director of the Awards.

There were more than 400 nominees for the 2011 Chicago Innovation Awards, representing an increase of more than 60 percent over the past two years.
