All applications were evaluated based on the following criteria: care efficiency, competitive advantage, financial impact/ value, market need, patient experience/satisfaction, quality of care and patient outcomes, and overall fierceness and innovation. Finalists were selected based on calculation of the judges’ scores in each area.

Sphere3® is being recognized for its innovative, industry-leading product, Aperum®.

“We are ecstatic that Sphere3® received two top honors from the judges. These awards confirm the exceptional feedback from our clientele and the ‘aha’ moments we have seen when introducing Aperum® to new customers” Kourtney Govro Sphere3® Chief Executive Officer.

Sphere3® recognizes the impact of HCAHPS on hospitals and post discharge summary scorecard reports do not allow to influence patients’ perception of care while in the hospital. In addition Sphere3® recognized there was a void in the industry to convert strategic patient satisfaction goals into actionable and measurable tactical activities. Aperum® reveals the data points in real time between patient and caregivers with an integrated software approach, allowing caregivers to positively influence the patient experience prior to being discharged. Aperum® offers multiple modules specifically targeting solutions for units, caregivers, and patient’s needs. Aperum® connects nursing leadership with the activities of the unit by revealing actual workload data and competing events as the patient conversation develops the perception of care. Aperum is one source of just not doing the right thing, but doing it in the right way To learn more about Sphere3®, visit
