MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the medical imaging workflow solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Intelerad with the 2013 North America Frost & Sullivan Entrepreneurial Company of the Year Award. In 2012, Intelerad launched a series of new products designed to optimize medical imaging workflows in distributed medical imaging environments, particularly multi-site ambulatory facilities. Intelerad's proactive efforts and speed of response to market needs gave the company a substantial competitive advantage in the market and helped it pull ahead of its competitors.
"The newly introduced products are highly innovative in that they respond to emerging market needs for more efficient workflow solutions and effective ways of communication," said Frost & Sullivan Principal Analyst Nadim Daher.
