May 3, 2022
Graphite Health, a software company intent on transforming the digital
future of healthcare, today received Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas
Award Honorable Mention in the Health category. Fast Company’s 2022
World Changing Ideas Awards showcase some of the world’s most inventive entrepreneurs and companies tackling global challenges.
“We are honored that Graphite Health has received this recognition from Fast Company alongside so many other great innovators working to change the world.” says Ries Robinson, CEO of Graphite Health. “We need to make innovation in healthcare easier, allowing health systems across to the U.S. to integrate best-in-class technology solutions quickly and at-scale so that they can focus on taking care of patients instead of vetting new apps. Graphite Health is addressing this critical need through its application platform, software development kit, and marketplace, to finally bring healthcare into the 21st century and unlock better quality care, lower costs, and overall efficiency.”
A panel of eminent Fast Company editors and reporters selected winners and finalists from a pool of more than 2,997 entries across transportation, education, food, politics, technology, health, social justice, and more. The 2022 awards feature entries from across the globe, from Switzerland to Hong Kong to Australia.
Fast Company’s Summer 2022 issue (on newsstands May 10, 2022) will highlight, among others, probiotics for coral reefs, easy-to-assemble kit homes for refugees or disaster survivors, a 3D printed vaccine patch, an electric truck, a system to heat homes from the waste heat of a name-brand factory, and prosecutor-initiated resentencing for overly long prison sentences.
“We are consistently inspired by the novelty and creativity that people are applying to solve some of our society’s most pressing problems, from shelter to the climate crisis. Fast Company relishes its role in amplifying important, innovative work to address big challenges,” says David Lidsky, interim editor-in-chief of Fast Company. “Our journalists have identified some of the most ingenious initiatives to launch since the start of 2021, which we hope will both have a meaningful impact and lead others to join in being part of the solution.”
