Global well-being improvement leader Healthways (NASDAQ: HWAY) has
ranked #11 on the InformationWeek Elite 100, a list of the top business
technology innovators in the United States. This is InformationWeek’s 26th
year identifying and honoring the nation's most innovative users of
information technology; formerly the InformationWeek 500, the assessment
this year was narrowed to a more exclusive list of the top 100
Healthways has been recognized by InformationWeek for seven consecutive
years, this year for establishing an approach that ensures each new
application it introduces to the marketplace collectively serves the
common goal of well-being improvement. Improving individual well-being
has been proven to lower health-related costs as well as improve
organizational performance for employers, health plans and health
systems. Healthways apps share data, eliminate redundant requests of end
users, and coalesce to offer more value together than as standalone apps.
“Every new application that Healthways introduces is engineered for more
purposeful functionality,” said Guy Barnard, chief information officer
of Healthways. “All Healthways apps work off of a single security
protocol that shares the user’s identity, operate and are easily
navigated on any device, and support multiple languages — all while
offering a consumer-friendly experience. Our goal is to have the
strongest solution set in the market, and we appreciate that
InformationWeek has recognized our innovation.”
InformationWeek Elite 100 research tracks the technology-based
investments, strategies and results of some of the best-known
organizations in the country. Unique among corporate rankings, the
InformationWeek Elite 100 spotlights the power of business technology
“The digital business movement is a force CIOs can't ignore. Just as
Amazon.com transformed the retail industry, Netflix changed the face of
movie distribution, and Orbitz and others reinvented travel planning,
new digital companies, technologies, and business models will shake up a
range of other industries, from healthcare to manufacturing to higher
education. Digital businesses are adept at using the web in conjunction
with mobile, social, analytics, and other technologies to not only boost
sales, but also change their relationships with customers. The 2014
InformationWeek Elite 100 highlights companies that are leading this
digital business revolution, redefining business models and reshaping
industries,” said InformationWeek Editor In Chief Rob Preston.
