Via Madison Magazine
While major cities across the country have built reputations as leaders in the health care market, the Madison area has positioned itself as an emerging center for health innovation. Smaller, yes, but the hub of activity is arguably as robust as other rising markets including Austin, Texas, Salt Lake City and Seattle. Wisconsin’s capital city and surrounding region are home to a network of businesses and organizations, including Epic Systems—the industry leader in electronic health records—plus three major hospitals, multiple insurers, numerous health-tech startups, a strong manufacturing base and a world-class university known for its groundbreaking research and its continued studies in health science.
This year’s M List recognizes leaders and trailblazers of 30 dynamic companies and organizations on the leading edge of health innovation in the Madison area. Ranging from health-tech startups to service organizations, these M List honorees contribute to the region’s thriving health care ecosystem. In addition, Madison Magazine is recognizing nine industry giants as “Titans,” as well as four noteworthy projects and organizations that are “Ones to Watch.” This is the fifth year of this prestigious list, and each year the focus has changed. Previous years have honored professionals in the areas of technology/biotech, food, social innovation and education/mentorship.
