We could not be more proud of the work we’ve done to support the heroes in our provider community through this difficult time, and it is an honor to be recognized for that work by the American Business Awards

Azalea Health Innovations Inc. (Azalea Health) today announced it was named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Most Valuable Corporate Response to COVID-19 category in the 19th Annual American Business Awards®.

More than 3,800 nominations – a record number – from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Virtual Event of the Year, and App of the Year, among others. Azalea Health was nominated in the Most Valuable Corporate Response category for the COVID-19 Response Awards.

Within hours of the National Emergency Declaration, Azalea announced it would provide free telehealth services to its over 800 hospital and health clinic customers, most of them in rural and underserved communities that were highly vulnerable to COVID-19. With close customer support, providers were able to quickly stand-up the cloud-based application and offer it to patients, helping them avoid potential exposure to infection. Support teams also assisted providers with telehealth billing and reimbursement best practices, revenue recovery, and new regulations. What’s more, Azalea’s FHIR interoperable solution made it easy for providers to share critical data with state health information exchanges (HIEs) to track the pandemic.

“We could not be more proud of the work we’ve done to support the heroes in our provider community through this difficult time, and it is an honor to be recognized for that work by the American Business Awards,” said Baha Zeidan, CEO of Azalea Health. “The pandemic has shown the importance of closing the digital divide in healthcare, and as the pandemic winds down, we will continue to supply underserved providers with the cutting edge in cloud-based health IT, enabling them to provide better care for their patients and maintain healthy revenue flows. Congratulations to the whole Azalea team that worked hard to make this achievement possible.”

More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

“The American economy continues to show its resilience, and as we’re poised on the beginning of what should be a phenomenal period of growth, we celebrate the remarkable achievements of a wide range of organizations and people over the past 18 months,” said Stevie Awards President Maggie Gallagher. “This year’s Stevie-winning nominations in The American Business Awards are testament to the ingenuity, the commitment, the passion, the adaptability, and the creativity of the American people. We look forward to celebrating this year’s winners during our virtual ceremony on June 30.”

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be virtually presented to winners during a live event on Wednesday, June 30. Tickets for the virtual event are now on sale.
