1. What did winning the 2021 Lillie Knox Award mean for you and your business?
Winning the 2021 Lillie Knox Award meant that we could upgrade our online scheduling system to accommodate vaccination series requiring multiple shots (COVID), and interface more directly with our billing system & government entities for required reporting.

We used our funds to help pay for IT development for our online appointment scheduling, which dramatically reduces billing time and frees up resources via automation since we no longer have to data enter everything after the fact.
