Rosemary Kennedy, Chief Health Informatics Officer with Connect America, is one of only three healthcare professionals nationwide being considered for a specific honor in her field. Yahoo Finance carried the news.
Kennedy’s Bala Cynwyd firm, Connect America, provides technology to enable remote monitoring of senior citizens alone in their homes.
The honorific Kennedy is being considered for is the Dr. Martin L. Block Award for Innovation and Excellence. It is issued by RISE Health, a healthcare-industry support provider from Charlotte, North Carolina.
