As soon as I got the notification about GeoMetrick Enterprises winning the 2016 GHP (Global Health & Pharma) Life Sciences Awards, I sent the notification out. I couldn’t contain myself! Meanwhile, I’ve spent a little more time looking at the winners.
Out of curiosity, I looked through all the winners to see who else in our part of the industry might have won. I don’t see anything. The only related company I see in there is Thermo Fisher Scientific, who won an award with their clinical diagnostics.
As usual, our laboratory informatics side of things is not necessarily at the forefront of people’s minds when they’re making nominations. I suppose that makes it just that much more exciting that GeoMetrick Enterprises won an award. In the awards, they do say it doesn’t matter how large or small you are and when you consider that some winners were companies like Thermo Fisher Scientific, one of the truly huge companies out there, and quite small companies like mine, they really did mean that.
