NEW YORK & OLATHE, Kan. (Sept. 11, 2017) — The winners of Fast Company’s prestigious Innovation by Design Awards were announced today on FastCoDesign.com (https://www.fastcodesign.com/innovation-by-design/2017). Kansas City’s Redivus Health received an Honorable Mention in the Health category. All of the honorees are featured in the October issue of the print magazine, available at newsstands Sept. 19.

“Making the Fast Company Innovation by Design list in the same year we launched our first mobile clinical decision support platform is phenomenal,” says Dr. Jeff Dunn, Redivus Health founder and CEO. “Our team is honored and exhilarated to be included with other well-known, ground-breaking companies. This prestigious recognition inspires us to keep working and innovating to reduce medical error, improve patient care and save lives.”

Redivus Health was recognized for its innovative, industry-leading mobile product, which provides physicians, nurses and paramedics with actionable, clinical guidance during an emergent healthcare event. The Redivus mobile application, combined with a cloud-based platform, delivers evidence-based protocols to enhance diagnostic and treatment accuracy for cardiac arrest, stroke and sepsis. Hospitals and EMS providers use Redivus to reduce risk, improve quality, lower costs, and increase compliance.

Standing Out Among Record Number of Submissions

The Innovation by Design Awards program, now in its sixth year, honors the most innovative and disruptive design solutions created to resolve today’s most challenging business issues. Finalists were selected from a record number of more than 2,500 international submissions across 13 categories – ultimately recognizing 299 entrants – the most winners, finalists and honorable mentions in the history of the awards. Honorees include household names like Coca-Cola and Sony, design firms R/GA and IDEO, and emerging companies like Willow and Away. This year’s judging panel, comprised of the world’s best design minds, included actor and furniture designer Terry Crews, Kickstarter CEO Yancey Strickler and Roman Mars, Founder of 99% Invisible.
