S5Health Acknowledges TKSoftware’s Corporate Donation to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

S5Health encouraged local Hamilton County company, TKSoftware to become a corporate sponsor by contributing to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s (JDRF’s) fund raiser to help find a cure for this devastating disease.

 
PRLog - Oct. 20, 2010 - FISHERS, Ind. -- Thanks to generous corporate donors, including the donation from TKSoftware, S5Health met its corporate goal to raise money for the Walk to Cure Diabetes, held in Military Park on October 9, 2010. S5Health offers an online toolset to improve the quality of healthcare for millions of people living with diabetes and encouraged the entire business and civic community to participate in this year’s event. In addition to caring about the health of the Hamilton County community, TKSoftware offers a Medical Claims Clearinghouse and data management solutions that simplify the healthcare revenue cycle for Providers, Payors, PPOs, Utilization and Review companies.

JDRF is a leader in setting the agenda for diabetes research worldwide, and is the largest charitable funder and advocate of type 1 research. The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disorder which results in the loss of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. People with the disorder produce too little or no insulin and must regularly monitor their blood sugar and give themselves insulin through injections or a pump to stay alive.

S5Health toolset is developed to improve the quality of health care and health outcomes for millions of people living with diabetes. Jim Jordan, CEO and Founder of S5Health, said, “Thank you and congratulations to the many people who came out to raise money for diabetes research and support JDRF, the S5Health team, walkers, sponsors and volunteers.”  Jim said, “With great support from local Hamilton County businesses, such as TKSoftware, and our local chapter of JDRF, we are moving closer to our goal - a cure for diabetes and its complications.” JDRF is moving research from the laboratory bench to the patient’s bedside. Jim agrees that real innovation results from looking at the challenges people living with diabetes face every day and using technology to extend and enhance their lives. According to Jim, “The S5Health diabetes platform was developed from the perspective of the patient and family members living with diabetes, their clinicians, and providers.”
