Pexip Health Wins “Best Telehealth Platform” Award in 2021 MedTech Breakthrough Awards

2021 MedTech Breakthrough Awards Program Recognizes Outstanding Health & Medical Technology Products and Companies


April 28, 2021 - Pexip today announced its virtual care solution, Pexip Health, won “Best Telehealth Platform” in the fifth 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.

Healthcare organizations rely on Pexip’s secure video platform to deliver a broad spectrum of virtual care services. Patients can join video calls from the device of their choice, without the need to download any software or plugins, while providers can use the technologies they already own to meet with patients. With robust integrations and customization options, organizations can easily extend their care from hospital to home.

“Telehealth has been in the spotlight like never before and many organizations and patients are seeing how complex these healthcare video deployments can be,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “Pexip Health simplifies complex video conferencing to empower individuals to meet, regardless of location or technology. We offer a hearty congratulations to Pexip for taking home our ‘Best Telehealth Platform’ award in the 2021 MedTech Breakthrough Awards program.”

“Today’s clinicians need secure, high-quality video that fits seamlessly into their daily workflows. The Pexip Health video solution was designed with these tenets in mind and is already powering more than 600,000 virtual visits a week for leading hospitals and health systems in North America,” said Odd Sverre Østlie, CEO of Pexip. “Many thanks to MedTech Breakthrough for putting a spotlight on our breakthrough telehealth and virtual health capabilities and we look forward to continued growth in this space.”

MedTech Breakthrough Awards recognize the innovation, hard work, and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Robotics, Clinical Administration, Telehealth, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), mHealth, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,850 nominations from over 17 different countries throughout the world.
