In a tweet on Tuesday, Triangle mobile health startup Validic buried the lede, to use an old journalism term: A mobile health journal did more than include Validic’s “partners and clients.”

“Congrats also to our partners, clients in the #DigitalHealth 100. Well deserved recognition for truly impactful work,” Validic noted about the Journal of mHealth’s report.

Validic is one of the 100.

But one has to read to the very bottom of the report to see the Validic name. (Honorees are listed in alphabetic order.)

The salute caps a strong year for Validic, which recently added Quintiles – one of the world’s largest life sciences services firm – as a client. Validic offers a mobile platform through the “cloud” to support electronic health data through multiple devices.

And earlier this year Validic raised $12.5 million in investment capital, including mega-health player Kaiser Permanente.

There was plenty of other growth, too, as Validic, which Forbes has denoted as one of the disruptive players emerging in healthcare, expanded its overseas relationships. (See the various links with this post to review Validic’s rapid rise.)

So mHealth chose to include Validic based on what it calls a “global review process” based on a variety of criteria.

Companies were selected in:

  • Healthcare Applications
  • Clinical Solutions
  • Wearable Technologies
  • Medical Devices
  • Hardware
  • Assistive Technologies
  • Telehealth/Telecare
  • Data Analytics

“Building upon the amazing response that we had from the industry to our 2014 award list this year’s 100 have been compiled from a combination of nominations and industry research to identify the most innovative and effective companies, from around the world, operating in the mobile, digital and connected care industries today,” mHealth notes.

“And, what a remarkable 100 they are!

“The diversity of this year’s list stands out straight away. With innovations targeting just about every corner of healthcare the honouree companies offer technologies across a range of categories including, clinical solutions, wearable technologies, healthcare applications, medical devices, and data analytics. These are all solutions and services that are transforming, or have the potential to transform, and disrupt the way in which healthcare is delivered.”
