Glytec Named to Prestigious Inc. 5000 List

Insulin Management Software Company Recognized as One of Nation’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

WALTHAM, Mass. (August 24, 2021) – Glytec, the only provider of cloud-based insulin management software across the continuum of care, was recognized by Inc. Magazine on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The Inc. 5000 represents a unique look at the fastest-growing companies within the most dynamic segment of the American economy – independent small businesses. Technology-driven companies such as Intuit, Zappos and Microsoft have been named Inc. 5000 honorees in past years.

The Inc. 5000 recognition comes after a year when health systems significantly expanded the use of Glytec’s eGlycemic Management System® (eGMS) to improve care, cost and patient outcomes through personalized insulin treatment recommendations. Glytec is now partnering with over 300 healthcare facilities across the country, and it increased the number of beds covered nationwide by its eGMS software by 25% in 2020. The company also leveraged its clinical expertise and data from its large install base over the past year to conduct and publish research about the impact of glycemic management on COVID-19 mortality and outcomes. Two of Glytec’s recent studies, published in peer-reviewed journals, contributed to the growing understanding providers have about the importance of glycemic management and the knowledge that is driving demand for its eGMS.

“Our sustained growth over the years is a testament to the real value Glytec delivers. It’s especially significant that we continued this trajectory this year amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, and I believe it speaks to the realization many providers are having around the importance of glycemic management,” said Ed Furlong, President and CEO of Glytec. “I’m proud of our team and the work we are doing to support millions of people across the country in need of insulin treatment during their stay in the hospital, especially following the US Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services new rules for hospitals to report severe hypoglycemia and severe hyperglycemia rates. I’m confident that our commitment to improving patient safety, empowering clinicians and controlling costs will only accelerate our strong track record of growth moving forward.”

Ranked at No. 3,953 with a three-year revenue of 79%, Glytec’s recognition of being placed on the list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies comes months after the company raised $21 million in funding to continue rapidly scaling by investing in research and development, additional talent and integrations with other diabetes technology across the continuum of care.

“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”

Leading hospitals across the United States, at health systems including AdventHealth, Novant Health and Sentara Healthcare, trust Glytec to support inpatient insulin dosing and glycemic management. Centered on the FDA-cleared software, Glucommander, Glytec’s eGMS is proven to reduce severe hypoglycemia by 99.8%, 30-day readmissions by 36-68% and length of stay by up to 3.2 days. The safety and efficacy of Glytec’s eGMS have been validated in hundreds of research studies to date. Glytec’s customer retention rate is over 95% and partners have reported annualized cost savings as high as $20,000 per licensed bed.
