Technology Association of Georgia Honors 40 Companies for Innovation and Contributions to the State’s Technology Community
ATLANTA, GA, February 4th, 2019, The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia’s technology industry, today announced Azalea Health as one of its Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia. TAG will recognize this prestigious group at The Summit 2019 on February 11-12, 2019, at the Cobb Galleria Centre.
TAG’S Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based technology companies for their innovation, financial impact, and their efforts at spreading awareness of Georgia’s technology initiatives throughout the U.S. and globally.
“The 2019 Top 40 finalists are an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of Georgia’s Technology community,” said Larry Williams, president & CEO of TAG. “The 2019 Top 40 finalists are shining examples of what makes our State such a hotbed for technology and we applaud them for standing out as leaders in Georgia’s technology community.”
This year’s Top 40 were selected from among over 100 applications submitted by companies from across Georgia. Companies selected for the “Top 40” will be showcased in an exhibition at The Summit 2019.
“This year’s Top 40 was more competitive than ever,” said Dennis Zakas, managing partner of Zakas & Leonard, LLP and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “In our quest to showcase the most innovative companies in Georgia, we had to make hard decisions, resulting in the exclusion of numerous deserving companies, many of which had been recognized as a Top 10 company in the past. The companies that we selected this year are truly outstanding.”
“We are honored to have once again made TAG’s list of Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia,” said Baha Zeidan, CEO and co-founder of Azalea Health Innovations. “Azalea Health’s significant growth in 2018 was driven by our unwavering commitment to delivering premium and affordable health IT solutions to the undeserved rural market, as demonstrated by the recent release of our Health System Patient Index, which enables providers at rural hospitals and clinics to seamlessly share patient information for improved patient care.”
The event will feature internationally recognized keynote speakers, the Top 40 and Top 10 Innovative Georgia Companies competition, the newest inductee into the Technology Hall of Fame of Georgia, 30 breakout sessions on global trend, and a two-day exhibitor showcase.
