Modernizing Medicine Earns the No. 1 Spot on the South Florida Business Journal’s ‘Fast 50′ List for the Second Year in a Row

Boca Raton, FL – June 5, 2012 – Modernizing Medicine, the creator of the Electronic Medical Assistant® (EMA™), a cloud-based, specialty-specific electronic medical records (EMR) system, announced that it has been named the number one fastest growing company by the South Florida Business Journal (SFBJ) in its ‘Fast 50’ for the second year in a row.

Each year the SFBJ ranks South Florida’s fastest-growing companies to determine the prestigious ‘Fast 50.’ Companies chosen include both private and public companies and range in industry (including real estate development, manufacturing, technology, healthcare and retail), size, and annual revenue.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized for the second year in a row as the fastest growing company in South Florida by the South Florida Business Journal.  To be ranked number one amid a list of extremely successful companies is especially an honor,” said Daniel Cane, CEO and co-founder of Modernizing Medicine. “Our entire staff has worked incredibly hard to make Modernizing Medicine what it is today and this award is a true testament to the game-changing product we have brought to market.”

Since securing the number one spot on last year’s ‘Fast 50 list’, Modernizing Medicine has grown its customer base by over 93%, almost doubling the total number of providers using EMA to over 2,600. Modernizing Medicine has also more than doubled its staff and grown its product line with the addition of EMA Plastic Surgery™, EMA Cosmetic™ and EMA Orthopedics™. The company was previously named one of “America’s Most Promising Companies” by FORBES, was named the #1 “Top Mobile Startup in South Florida” by the South Florida Technology Alliance and was named one of the “2012 Florida Companies to Watch” by the Florida Economic Gardening Institute. Daniel Cane and Dr. Michael Sherling, Modernizing Medicine’s co-founder and Chief Medical Officer, were also recognized as exceptional leaders and innovators with ’40 Under 40’ awards from the South Florida Business Journal.
