BKDpulse Receives BKD’s 2020 Innovation of the Year Award
NATIONAL OFFICE – BKD CPAs & Advisors’ CEO Ted Dickman is pleased to announce that BKDpulse™ received the firm’s 2020 Innovation of the Year Award. BKDpulse launched in October 2019 and is an in-depth dashboarding platform of financial benchmarking data for community health centers (CHC) that stands out in the market.
The 2020 Innovation of the Year Award is voted on by members of BKD’s Growth and Innovation Governance Committee and Innovation Advancement Committee. The honor is part of BKD’s innovation program, BKD EDGE, which was created in 2018 to encourage new product, service and market ideas to better service clients.
BKDpulse was developed through the collaborative efforts of the firm’s healthcare, analytics and BKD EDGE teams as a tool to help CHCs. The idea originated from Partner Jeff Allen.
“This is an important step along our innovation journey, and I’m excited to provide a new tool to help the healthcare institutions that have served our communities diligently and selflessly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. I’m proud to recognize our team members for coming up with creative solutions to assist CHCs as they navigate new waters,” said Dickman.
BKDpulse has not only received positive response from CHC clients and prospects, but also the National Association of Community Health Centers, which also has become a BKDpulse user. BKDpulse also has become the source of new spinoff ideas looking to repeat the design and capitalize on the market success for other industries.
