WALTHAM, MASS., May 31, 2017— Verscend Technologies, Inc. (Verscend), a leader in data-driven healthcare solutions, has ranked #42 on the Healthcare Informatics 100 (HCI 100), an annual compilation of the top healthcare information technology companies by revenue from the most recent fiscal year.

The need to engage with and make use of voluminous healthcare data has never been greater, and our data-driven solutions play a vital role in helping the U.S. healthcare system undergo positive transformation through advanced data analytics and their intelligent application."
