BOWIE, Md., April 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inovalon (Nasdaq: INOV), a leading provider of cloud-based platforms empowering data-driven healthcare, today announced that it has augmented its 2020 Annual Report with the provision of its inaugural Sustainability Report for the period which includes the Company’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) priorities. The report highlights the Company’s mission to enable a more efficient healthcare ecosystem that benefits individuals, society as a whole, and the environment.
“At the very core of our mission is the provision of capabilities that empower greater efficiency and impact across the healthcare ecosystem,” said Keith Dunleavy, M.D., chief executive officer of Inovalon. “Not only is our work dedicated to the improvement of care and its sustainability for hundreds of millions of individuals, but we also believe that meeting our responsibilities to our stakeholders means taking care of our clients, associates, the communities we operate in, the environment, and the deeply interconnected world we all call home.”
As Inovalon continues its path of significant growth, the Company aims to be proactive in developing and executing best practices in all areas of significant importance across the Company. Examples include the building of an increasingly modern workplace that encourages and celebrates diversity, equity, and inclusion; the presence of strong governance and oversight bodies, such as Inovalon’s strong Board of Directors and associated oversight governance Committees, a Lead Independent Board Member structure, the Corporate Security Council, and the Executive Promotion Committee; the Company’s proactive stance on environmental responsibility; and its long history of supporting many worthy community programs though financial support and associate volunteer hours.
