Velocity Medical Solutions Named An Intel Innovation Award Finalist

ATLANTA, Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Health IT Leadership Summit, an annual event founded by the Metro Atlanta Chamber, Technology Association of Georgia's Health Society, and the Georgia Department of Economic Development, today announced that Velocity Medical Solutions has been named as a Finalist for the 2013 Intel Innovation Award.

The award, which recognizes companies developing leading-edge healthcare IT technology, and unique approaches to improving health and the healthcare delivery process, will be presented at the Health IT Leadership Summit on Tuesday, November 12, at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta.

The passion to improve cancer treatment outcomes is the undercurrent that drives Velocity's health IT solution for oncologists. Velocity's clinical intelligence platform creates a longitudinal map of all the imaging and treatment information for a cancer patient and integrates it into a comprehensive and powerful dashboard that helps the provider team make more confident decisions.  Velocity allows oncology providers to create treatment plans, monitor a patient's response to therapy, collaborate as a team, and share clinical knowledge with each other.

"Cancer patients worldwide are benefitting from the innovations that Velocity brings to image-guided cancer therapies," said Paul Pantalone, Chief Technology Officer of Velocity. "However, the concept and development of the technology took place right here in Georgia, and it's an honor to be recognized as one of the state's top health IT innovation leaders. The Velocity team is dedicated to improving cancer treatment outcomes."

"It was truly a challenge for our judges to select the four finalists from among the many Georgia-based applicants," adds Jodie Braner, chair of this year's awards committee. "We're looking forward to announcing the winner at the Health IT Leadership Summit on November 12. It will be an exciting opportunity to showcase Georgia's healthcare IT innovators to leaders from every part of the healthcare industry from this state and beyond – providers, payers, vendors, government, non-profits and academia."
