A-Life Medical, Inc. Named Winner of the 2010 Red Herring Top 100 North America Award

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- A-Life Medical, Inc., the pioneer and leading provider of computer-assisted coding (CAC) products and services to the healthcare industry, announced today it was named a winner of Red Herring’s Top 100 North America award, a prestigious honor recognizing leading private companies from North America, which celebrated these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.

Red Herring’s Top 100 North America list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo!, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube and eBay would change the way we live and work. Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America.

“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe A-Life embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. A-Life should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.”

“We are gratified to be named winner in the Red Herring 100 North America award competition. This is a significant achievement for our company and its growing team of professionals. We understand that Red Herring, after eyeing hundreds of submissions, had a tough choice in identifying those entities it deemed exceptional in discovering and advocating top business opportunities. A-Life is recognized in the healthcare information technology sector for its cutting-edge CAC technologies and solutions, which led to the rapid growth and innovation that Red Herring is now acknowledging. And for that, we are greatly appreciative,” stated Jaye Connolly, president at A-Life.

The winners were named at an event held in San Diego on June 24, 2010, during the Red Herring North America Conference.
