Brightree Named to Inc. 5000 for Fifth Year in a Row

ATLANTA – August 21, 2014 – Brightree®, the leading provider of cloud-based clinical, billing and business management software solutions for the post-acute care industry, announced today that it has been recognized on the Inc. 5000 annual ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America for the fifth consecutive year. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Traditionally known for its leadership position in the Home Medical Equipment (HME) market, Brightree has extended its investments in hospice, home health and infusion solutions, as well as in surrounding services – such as patient and private payments, revenue cycle management (RCM), portal-based ordering systems and referral acceleration and management relationships.

The 2014 list rankings were determined based on growth in company revenue between 2010 and 2013. During this timeframe, Brightree experienced a 175 percent growth rate, earning $74.9 million in 2013.

“We are proud to be named a five-time honoree on the Inc. 5000 list as it’s a testament to the commitment and passion of our entire team,” said Dave Cormack, CEO of Brightree. “Post-acute care—including home medical equipment, home health, and hospice—are playing an increasingly important role in transforming U.S. healthcare to heighten patient satisfaction while also lowering costs. Our innovative technology and services enable providers to become more strategic and more efficient, so they can enhance financial performance while improving overall patient care.”
