Miami, FL – November 11, 2009 – Just 45 days after its launch, CareCloud, a healthcare IT company based in South Florida, was 1 of 4 technology companies selected as a finalist in the “Small Business of the Year” category of the 7th annual ITFlorida Awards Program.
“Florida offers a dynamic technology community to tap into. The daunting task of building CareCloud’s software platform would simply not have been possible without the talented software developers we have in Florida,” said Albert Santalo, CEO of Carecloud. Santalo continued, “CareCloud’s software is built on Open Source technologies, which have given the Company the ability to develop an incredibly robust platform that is highly differentiated from that of incumbents. Florida’s highly entrepreneurial economy is ripe for continued development of Open Source software solutions.”
