ATLANTA, Dec. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Assent, provider of the award-winning PatientPad® self-service patient check-in and patient education solution, today announced it has earned top honors in the "Emerging Technology Company" category at the 2011 Spirit of Endeavor Awards presented by the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) and TechAmerica Georgia.

Digital Assent was honored with this prestigious award for the PatientPad – an innovative wireless touch-screen solution that eliminates the paper registration forms in physicians' offices and delivers targeted health information to patients while they sit and wait.  The company was also recently selected as a finalist for Forbes Magazine's "List of America's Most Promising Companies."

"Companies such as Digital Assent are one of the reasons Georgia has been ranked first in the nation for entrepreneurial activity," said Tino Mantella, president and CEO of the Technology Association of Georgia.  "We are proud to recognize Georgia's most exciting new technology companies through our Spirit of Endeavor Awards and look forward to hearing much more from them in the future."

The Spirit of Endeavor Awards recognize and celebrate innovative technology companies and individuals in Georgia that drive new ideas, invigorate the community and lead people through technology. 

"We've come a long way since winning last year's Cool Technology of the Year award," said Andrew Ibbotson, president and CEO of Digital Assent. "Being recognized as this year's top Emerging Technology Company is a testament to the hard work, creativity and dedication of our rapidly growing team," he added.  "We are proud that Digital Assent stood out among so many deserving nominees, and thank TechAmerica and TAG for acknowledging our success."  Year-to-date, the company has sold more than 2,500 PatientPads to 400 practices in 38 states.

All winners and finalists of the 2011 Spirit of Endeavor Awards were recognized at a special ceremony on Dec. 9, 2011 at TWELVE Atlantic Station in Atlanta. The 2011 Spirit of Endeavor Awards are sponsored by Platinum sponsor Concurrent, Gold sponsor ASAP Solutions Group, CorFire, and Silver sponsor Burnette Insurance, CresaPartners, Definition 6, Ernst & Young  and Intel. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the TAG Education Collaborative.
