Shimmer an innovator in digital health technology, has been recognised as one of the top 100 global digital health companies in the Global Digital Health 100 Awards as compiled by The Journal of mHealth. This is a prestigious honour which recognises the most innovative companies working in the mobile and digital health sectors today.
Reflecting the evolving importance of mobile technologies and digital solutions in the healthcare sector, the Global Digital Health 100 acknowledges the significant work being carried out, in this field, by pioneering organisations from around the globe.
“This year has been amazing for digital health” said Matthew Driver, Managing Editor of The Journal of mHealth. “There are so many great companies producing really innovative and amazing products that are set to revolutionise healthcare delivery. We had a very difficult time narrowing the pool and selecting the final 100. Shimmer shows great promise and therefore deserves to be among the Finalists. We know that all the 2014 honourees will grow into some amazing companies that are sure to make an impact.”
The Award represents 6 months of research by the editorial team at the Journal, who considered the offerings and innovations from over 1,500 different mobile and digital health companies worldwide, before selecting the final 100. This is the first year of the Award, but The Journal of mHealth plan to make it an annual feature. “We hope that this will also become a barometer of the trends occurring in the global digital and mobile health sectors.” said Matthew Driver.
