Boca Raton, Florida – June 12, 2015 – Modernizing Medicine, Inc., the creator of the Electronic Medical Assistant® (EMA™), a cloud-based, iPad native, specialty-specific electronic medical record (EMR) system, announced today that co-founder and CEO Daniel Cane was named EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® in the Florida region’s Emerging category.
EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® is the world’s most prestigious business award for entrepreneurs. Recognized globally, the award honors the most outstanding entrepreneurs who inspire others with their vision, leadership and achievement.
Cane, along with co-founder and Chief Medical Officer Michael Sherling, MD, MBA, founded Boca Raton-based Modernizing Medicine in 2010 with the mission of not only providing a better electronic medical records (EMR) system for the underserved medical specialties, but also to develop a system that would help to improve healthcare outcomes. Within five years, the company quickly captured 30 percent of the dermatology EMR market and a rapidly growing customer base in six other medical specialties.
“I am incredibly honored to be the recipient of the EY Entrepreneur of the Year award,” said Cane, who accepted the award at the ceremony last night in Orlando, Fla. “The award reflects the swift and steady growth and success of Modernizing Medicine and what the team has been able to accomplish to make improvements in healthcare.”
Cane has raised $49 million in total funding for Modernizing Medicine, which has enabled the company to expand its offerings further for a comprehensive suite of specialty products and services. Last year, Modernizing Medicine added specialty billing and inventory management and also joined the IBM Watson Ecosystem to leverage the power of Watson’s cognitive computing to deliver even more evidence-based clinical support at the point of care.
The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year award follows Cane being recently named the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce Technology Entrepreneur of the Year and the company being named the South Florida Business Journal’s Best Place to Work in the large company category and a Forbes Most Promising Company for a second time. Cane has also been a past recipient of the Sun Sentinel’s Excalibur Award and he and co-founder Sherling were both honored with the US Chamber of Commerce Leadership in Healthcare award in 2014.
