RightCare said that it was selected by the Greater Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT) as the recipient of the 21st Annual PACT Enterprise Award for the category "Game Changing Healthcare Company."

In a release, the Company said that this award is given to rapidly growing companies that provide an innovative solution that has the potential to make a large and positive impact on cost, quality and access in healthcare, while demonstrating a valuable return on investment.

RightCare is a medical technology company located in Horsham, Pennsylvania, that provides hospitals and health systems a software application comprised of three modules--RightCare Risk Assessment, RightCare Coordination Central, and RightCare Post Care Connect-- designed to assess patient risk at the time of admission, ensure the appropriate care plan is offered, and seamlessly transition patient information to post-acute care providers.
