Updox Named 14th on Columbus Business First’s 2015 Fast 50 List

Industry-Leading Health Care CRM provider recognized for exceptional growth

Dublin, Ohio, October 15, 2015 - Updox, the industry leader for physician connectivity and customer relationship management (CRM) solutions for health care, was named 14th on Columbus Business First’s 2015 Fast 50 List, recognizing central Ohio’s fastest growing and emerging companies. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the award. Fast 50 honorees were chosen from a record-number 125 nominations received by the newspaper and independently verified by accounting firm GBQ Partners LLC.

This is the second honor this year that recognizes Updox’s growth. The company was also named #524 on the 34th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s entrepreneurs. Earlier this year, Updox was named one of Becker Hospital Review’s150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare” and a 2014 “Best Place to Work” by Columbus Business First.

“We’ve had an amazing year at Updox and we know that growth and success will continue through 2016,” said Michael Morgan, chief executive officer, Updox. “We’ve experienced 886% growth in the last three years, added almost 40 new jobs in our central Ohio office and are in the top 10% of fastest growing companies in the nation. We’re fortunate to be in a community that is so supportive of start-up businesses and has a great ecosystem to help launch organizations such as Updox.”

Through a broad Direct messaging platform and CRM applications suite, Updox connects all of the components within health care – physicians, patients, payers and partners – with the goal of driving improved outcomes through more efficient communications and better care coordination. Practices can communicate with patients to build engagement, as well as with other partners, such as hospitals, labs and payers, to coordinate care and expand referral networks. By growing the network and focusing on CRM, Updox takes that proven business model and makes it practical for health care.

“The adoption of technology into health care isn’t going to stop, especially as the market become more consumer-driven. Patients, as customers, are demanding the same conveniences they have with other businesses and physicians and health care partners have to find ways to easily, efficiently and cost-effectively coordinate care,” says Morgan. “Our initial customer push was focused on smaller, independent physician practices. Now, we’re connecting our network to larger practices, labs, payer providers, hospitals and long-term care facilities. Our opportunities are endless.”
