HealthSparq Lands on the Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—Third Year Running
For the 3rd time, HealthSparq appears on the Inc. 5000 list, ranking number 3,650 with three-year sales growth of 102%
PORTLAND, Ore. August 15, 2018 – Inc. magazine today revealed that HealthSparq is No. 3,650 on its 37th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“It’s been an exciting journey since HealthSparq was founded in 2008 and today we are proud to partner with a number of leading health plans across the U.S.,” said Mark Menton, HealthSparq CEO. “We are proud of all that we’ve accomplished since our founding, but there is still more to do. We look forward to the next 10 years as we continue to build solutions to advance health care transparency and navigation. There has never been a more important time to help consumers understand their health care options and we’ll continue to guide them in making informed, confident decisions about their own care.”
HealthSparq is among only a quarter of the companies on the Inc. 5000 rankings that have made the list three times. In 2016, HealthSparq appeared at number 196. In 2017, HealthSparq came in at 627.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
At HealthSparq, we help people make smarter health care choices by partnering with health plans to provide members with cost and quality information about doctors, hospitals and medical services, based on their individual benefits. We put people at the core of everything we do by conducting continuous usability testing, eliciting consumer feedback to enhance product development, hosting industry panels featuring everyday people, and bringing human stories to the forefront through our #WTFix campaign. Using these insights, we create solutions to help people understand and navigate the health care system better than ever before.
