The 4Medapproved Corporation was founded in December of 2010 to address the growing nationwide need in the medical community for aggregated unbiased and trustworthy information regarding the topic of electronic medical records. The added push by the federal government with the HITECH Act and Meaningful Use Requirements further promoted the management team and staff to create access to expanded tools and guidance on the site as well as to a full educational curriculum through the 4MedTraining program. The site was designed intentionally to provide open and free access to this agnostic knowledge base for all medical community end-users.
An effort was launched in late 2011 to create site sponsorship opportunities for vendors, distributors, manufacturers and consultants in support of this important resource initiative. 4Medapproved.com has been successful in securing a strong initial group of forward-thinking companies and organizations to help continue this mission (see our current list of contributing content providers, sponsors and partners) and to create a comprehensive network of Health Information Technology providers for total product and service delivery through the 4MedMarketplace online.
