OpenLoop Named ‘Startup Technology Company Of The Year’ At The 2021 Prometheus Awards
The Technology Association of Iowa 2021 Prometheus Awards, presented by LWBJ, unites Iowa innovators and leaders from technology, business, education and government to celebrate the year’s most momentous achievements.
We are proud to announce that OpenLoop was named Startup Technology Company of the Year at the 2021 Prometheus Awards. The Startup Technology Company of the Year is awarded to an early-stage Iowa technology company that demonstrates significant market potential, creativity and a promising future.
OpenLoop received this award for our vision and commitment to powering healing anywhere. With telehealth adoption skyrocketing, the industry is forecasted to reach $850 billion in value in the years ahead. Right now, OpenLoop has a huge opportunity to make a positive impact that will bridge the healthcare gap and streamline care delivery for clinicians, providers and patients alike, across the US.
OpenLoop was founded by Midwest natives, Dr. Jon Lensing and Christian Williams, with the mission to enable healing anywhere by servicing all 50 states nationwide. Growing up in rural Iowa, Lensing’s father was one of the area’s only OBGYNs. People drove from all over the state for their appointments. This problem sparked his passion for improving access to care for everyone.
OpenLoop was created from that same motivation to bridge the care gap and bring healthcare into the home. They are passionate about powering telehealth companies across the US to expand access to affordable, convenient and quality care. OpenLoop does this by connecting their network of leading clinicians with innovative digital health companies and managing many of the HR and Operations challenges that come with licensing, credentialing, insurance, PC groups and scheduling -- all through their SaaS platform.
