Prestigious Annual Awards Program Honors Outstanding Health & Medical Technology Products and Companies

TORONTO, May 5, 2022 – MedStack, a Toronto-based healthcare security and privacy compliance automation company, today announced that it has been selected as the winner of the “Best Patient Data Security Solution” award in the sixth annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by MedTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global health and medical technology market.

MedStack is an out-of-the-box privacy compliance automation solution built specifically for the needs of the digital health industry. The MedStack platform brings together compliance, security assessment responses, threat protection and audit readiness into a complete offering, effectively allowing digital health innovators to build privacy compliance directly into their tech stack. 

MedStack provides healthcare innovators with unprecedented power and flexibility to build, launch and scale compliant applications that automatically meet the obligations of today’s healthcare enterprise systems. MedStack takes a proactive approach to compliance, complementing the work of public cloud hosting providers with hard-coded protocols and systems to automate the majority of privacy and security requirements out of the gate.

MedStack customers are building a variety of cloud healthcare solutions, including telemedicine, patient engagement, smart medical devices, chronic condition management, mental health services, healthcare data workflows, and teledentistry.

“We are excited to be among this prestigious group of winners in MedTech Breakthrough’s 2022 award program. As a digital health startup ourselves, we understand the business challenges that other healthcare startups face. We believe strongly that if healthcare service organizations can trust digital health vendors to uphold their patient data protection obligations, together the industry can enable a wider community of solutions and therefore deliver better and more efficient care outcomes,” said Balaji Gopalan, Co-Founder and CEO at MedStack.

The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Telehealth, Clinical Administration, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), Virtual Care, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,900 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world. 

“Healthcare data security and privacy compliance requirements pose a significant barrier to the success of the digital health ecosystem,” said James Johnson, Managing Director at MedTech Breakthrough. “We congratulate the entire MedStack team on winning our ‘Best Patient Data Security Solution’ award for 2022 and their innovative approach to breaking through these complexities and challenges.”
