A new medical platform out of Boston-based Best Doctors Inc. has won international recognition, receiving gold in the 11th Annual International Business Awards for best new product or service in a social networking solution.

The device, known as Medting, acts like a sophisticated interactive message board, and allows doctors throughout the country to collaborate. With translation tools, high resolution diagnostic images, a patient’s complete medical history and a cloud-based system, doctors can sign in at any time of the day and contribute to an ongoing conversation around a patient. The new technology has helped bring industry leaders to consult on difficult or complex cases, and has saved lives by expanding that service regardless of geographic location.
