WALTHAM, MASS., Nov. 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PatientKeeper, Inc., a leading provider of healthcare applications for physicians, has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the eighth annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. The Top Places to Work 2015 issue was published online at BostonGlobe.com/topplaces last Thursday and appeared in The Boston Globe Magazine yesterday.

Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them the best—the employees. The survey measures employee opinions about their company's direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement. The employers are placed into one of four groups: small, with 50 to 99 employees; medium, with 100 to 249 workers; large, with 250 to 999; and largest, with 1,000 or more.

PatientKeeper, which is headquartered in Waltham, currently has 167 employees. The company provides more than 60,000 physicians nationwide with an intuitive way to view and act on patient information.

"Our organization has experienced significant growth and change over the years, culminating in last year's acquisition by HCA," Mike Southern, PatientKeeper's vice president of human resources, said. "The way in which our new parent company and existing leadership team have come together to embrace the best parts of PatientKeeper and enhance those with the best parts of HCA is unprecedented. It's great to know that our employees feel the same way."

"The success of a company is not only measured by its revenue and profits, but also by the loyalty and satisfaction of its employees," said Katie Johnston, Boston Globe workplace reporter and Top Places to Work editor. "The winning companies have developed innovative ways to engage and motivate their workers, which often serves as a key factor in innovation and leads to better professional performance."

The rankings in the Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by WorkplaceDynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from nearly 77,000 individuals at 357 Massachusetts organizations. The winners share a few key traits, including offering progressive benefits, giving their employees a voice, and encouraging them to have some fun while they're at it.
