ChartWise Medical Systems Growth Continues

ChartWise Medical Systems, Inc. has once again been recognized on the Inc. 5000 list. This year, ChartWise ranks 797th, placing the CACDI software pioneer in the top 16 percent of America’s top 5,000 fastest-growing privately owned companies.

ChartWise’s three-year growth rate of 565 percent prompted the company’s inclusion in this year’s Inc. 5000. ChartWise also ranks first on Inc.’s list of the fastest-growing privately owned businesses in Rhode Island for the second year in a row.

“ChartWise and the ChartWise 2.0 CACDI software solution have benefited greatly from a team of talented individuals rowing in the same direction for a single purpose – to provide the best documentation improvement tools and support in the health care industry,” said Dr. Jon Elion, founder and CEO of ChartWise. “Additionally, our amazing partners and customers at hospitals and medical centers across the country have supported us and served as such vocal advocates for our technology that our business continues to grow and thrive year after year. We’re competitive at ChartWise, so we’re already looking at new ways to innovate and separate ourselves from the rest of the industry as we head toward next year’s Inc. 5000.”

Companies eligible for the 2017 Inc. 5000 list must have generated at least $100,000 in revenue in 2013 and $2 million in 2016. These organizations must also be privately held, for profit, based in the U.S., and independently owned.
