Boca-based healthcare technology firm Modernizing Medicine was just named to Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2020. The recognition means more than bragging rights for the company that went from 60 employees as a startup here to nearly 800 a decade later. Well-known co-founder and CEO Dan Cane said they’re earning national attention, including Deloitte Fast 500 five years in a row. “This is a testament to our financial growth as an organization. Product-wise, our company has also earned national accolades along with our teams and people. Being an award-winning company certainly has its benefits both attracting and retaining talent,” Cane told Boca Voice.
The firm moved expanded and moved from the Research Park at Florida Atlantic University to Boca Raton Innovation Campus early last year.
They’re still working remotely after the coronavirus office shutdown and “will continue to do so for the near future,” Cane said. “We want to be able to have folks return to the normal they once knew, or at least as close to it. If extreme methods are still needed to safely return to work, I would rather wait and not take the risk. “Productivity has not been negatively affected by the work from home transition,” he added. “We’ve been successful with our 100% work-from-home mode – a huge testament to both the team and the technology infrastructure we have in place.”
Earlier, Modernizing Medicine announced the goal of employing 800 employees and they’re nearly there. “We currently have a total of 796 full-time employees working for the organization across the country and in our Chile office, and 601 of those are in Florida,” Cane said.
As half of 62 corporate headquarters in Palm Beach County based in Boca Raton, the city’s economic development manager said making Inc.’s list helps high-profile the city, too. “Successful companies like Modernizing Medicine helps us tell Boca’s story when recruiting out-of-state companies for relocation,” said Jessica Del Vecchio. “They’re a home-grown company; a true example of how hard work and a great corporate culture can help a business successfully go from start-up phase to making it on Inc.’s list in a relatively short period of time.”
Inc. singled out 395 out of 3,000 finalists for this year’s list. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey. The results showed that 94 percent of Modernizing Medicine’s team were “engaged.” Some of the perks the organization offers include catered lunches, a zen room, complimentary yoga classes, treadmill workstations and volunteer time off.
“I couldn’t be more proud of the culture our employees have truly helped to shape, and how they live out our company values and mission of transforming healthcare,” Cane said in a statement.
The company has a suite of products and services designed for clinical, financial and operational aspects of dermatology, gastroenterology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, otolaryngology, pain management, plastic surgery and urology practices. They also offer products designed specifically for ambulatory surgery centers.
