“According to Inc., healthcare is one of the fastest growing industries, with 147% growth since 2011,” said Rick Pleczko, President and CEO of symplr. “Our growth has been fueled by successfully addressing our customers’ need for simple, effective solutions that ease the burden of compliance with healthcare regulations, reduce risk, and increase patient and staff safety. We appreciate Inc.’s recognition of our success and are honored to be included among the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S.”
