Prestigious honor recognizes innovative IT products and programs that drive transformational progress in the federal market
FALLS CHURCH, Va., April 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Sierra7 and product partner, AvaSure, were recognized as a 2023 Disruptive Tech Awardee for bringing AvaSure’s TeleSitter®/TeleNurse™ solution to Federal healthcare IT programs. This award recognizes an innovative product, program, or emerging technology solution that has been implemented within a Federal Agency and shows measurable results.
“Sierra7 is honored to be recognized alongside our partner AvaSure as a 2023 Disruptive Tech Program Award Winner,” said Rafael Fagundo, Sierra7’s CEO and founder. “I would like to thank G2Xchange for this prestigious award. Our team is proud to continue delivering reliable transformational solutions serving the VA and supporting its mission to enhance the lives of the Veteran community.”
At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Veteran Affairs Medical Centers (VAMCs) faced personnel shortages and safety risks for patients and staff. VA’s solution was to implement TeleSitter®/TeleNurse™ enabling medical providers to communicate with patients effectively and safely throughout the pandemic. This solution has made transformational changes by increasing patient safety, improving patient care, and optimizing labor resources at hospitals and medical centers. This technology supports an augmented care environment where a virtual team can assist the bedside team, not replace them.
“We are proud to be such a major part of VA’s drive to improve access to care and quality for the Veterans who have contributed so much to our nation’s security and prosperity over the years,” said Adam McMullin, AvaSure’s CEO. “By establishing new platforms that deliver transformational patient safety and virtual care, we can help VA achieve better health outcomes for Veterans at lower costs.”
Sierra7 and AvaSure continue to develop and drive innovative solutions for VA and the Federal health market. This partnership has resulted in programs that support 29 VAMCs and the award of more than 12 Federal contracts.
G2Xchange will be honoring program awardees, as well as Change Agent Award winners, during their upcoming Disruptive Tech Summit: Programs and Change Agents Shifting the Landscape held in person on Wednesday, April 12, 2023, from 2:00-5:30 PM EDT.
