Happy 6th Birthday to Us!


On this day in history, a mere six years ago, something great was born. Something that would transform how healthcare information is created, consumed and utilized. Something that would continue to increase efficiency and improve outcomes. That ‘something’ is Modernizing Medicine. We love having reasons to celebrate and throw parties (word on the street is that they’re beyond epic), and today we celebrate the 6th birthday of Modernizing Medicine. It’s time for us to close our eyes, blow out seven candles (one for good luck of course) and make a wish. So much has been accomplished (and so much more still to come) and we wanted to recap the momentous milestones we have reached as a company thus far.
