The winners were announced at ABL Organization’s 12th Annual Innovations in Healthcare(SM) Awards Event, on April 28, in Newport Beach. The Event drew top executives from healthcare providers, information, medical and bio-technology, wellness, and professional services companies.

The Innovations in Healthcare(SM) ABBYs were awarded in three categories:

In the "Innovation in Healthcare Information Technology & Telecommunications" category, A-Life Medical, Inc., of San Diego, CA, represented by President Jaye Connolly, won the award in recognition of its Natural Language Processing LifeCode products that reduce time and expensive delays in the medical billing process (http://www.alifemedical.com).

In the "Innovative Approach to the Delivery of Healthcare" category, Specialists On Call, Inc., of West Lake Village, CA, represented by CEO Joe Peterson, MD, won the ABBY for its use of video and telecommunications technology to facilitate 24/7 consultations with off-site expert emergency-trained neurologists to deliver care, particularly in inner city and remote medical facilities (http://www.specialistsoncall.com).

And in the "Innovation in Medical/Bio-technology" category, the ABBY went to VQ OrthoCare, of Irvine, CA, represented by CEO Jim Knape, for its BioniCare Knee System – electrotherapy-enabled knee braces that are a cost-effective and clinically efficacious alternative to knee implant operations (http://www.vqorthocare.com).

The Awards Event was keynoted by the 2010 “Leadership in Innovation” Award winner Debra Reisenthel, Founding CEO of Novasys Medical, Inc., of Newark, CA (http://www.novasysmedical.com).

Also at the Event, David Sayen, CMS Region IX Administrator, in his "Pre-Note" address, discussed a number of the innovative "Demonstration Projects" currently underway to ensure that providers are incentivized to provide increasingly higher quality care.
