BOSTON— (April 16, 2019) – PatientPing, the nation’s most comprehensive care coordination platform, today announced that it has been shortlisted for the Healthcare IT Startup Company of the Year Award in the 2019 NEVY Awards, hosted by the New England Venture Capital Association (NEVCA) and presented by Dell Technologies.
