OVERLAND PARK, KS – (April 14, 2015) –ABPathfinder, Inc., developer of a cloud-based software tool to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of autism therapy, has been named a recipient of Microsoft’s 2015 Health Innovation Awards for enhancing the quality of patient care through analytics.

For nearly two decades, Microsoft’s awards program has recognized health organizations and technology solution partners that use Microsoft devices and services to streamline clinical processes, boost clinician productivity and operational performance, and improve the quality of patient care. Microsoft announced the 2015 winners today at the HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition in Chicago.

“The health care industry is prioritizing the adoption of modern technology and cloud services to scale for clinician needs and enable higher quality care for patients,” said Michael Robinson, vice president of Health and Life Sciences at Microsoft. “This year’s Microsoft Health Innovation Award recipients are advancing the goals of improved patient-provider interactions and increased clinician productivity through their pioneering use of Microsoft technologies to achieve health care solutions.”

ABPathfinder’s groundbreaking software captures and graphs real-time data, allowing for efficient tracking of skills, behaviors and goals. The software’s advanced analytics empower therapists and special education teachers to develop informed strategies, lesson plans and individualized therapy plans for children with autism or cognitive impairments. ABPathfinder leverages Microsoft’s Azure cloud technology to securely store sensitive data and allow access to client information from various devices and locations.

Studies demonstrate that ABPathfinder improves measurable outcomes, with patients acquiring skills up to 20 percent faster, and conserves resources, cutting administration and planning time by 50 percent. The software was recently named the top special needs solution in education by EdTech Digest. ABPathfinder announced major enhancements to the software’s appearance, navigation and backend features at the CEC 2015 Convention & Expo last week.

“Therapy centers and schools are using our software as a time- and money-saving solution, reallocating their focus on paperwork to patients and students,” said Jeff Blackwood, president and CEO of ABPathfinder. “We’re honored to receive this prestigious award and look forward to continue working with Microsoft’s technologies to improve the care ­– and ultimately, lives – of individuals.”

Nominations were submitted by hospitals, health systems, clinics and organizations around the world. An esteemed panel of industry experts judged this year’s winners on how their solutions are delivering groundbreaking results and producing better health outcomes for more people.
