Hillsboro-based Kryptiq has always had high hopes for improving physician-client communications. But now those high hopes are reaching thermospheric levels. Or exospheric. Or whatever.
Enough of the fancy words. Suffice it to say that Kryptiq has landed a new client that means they’ll be flying high, for sure. With astronauts and stuff. You see, Kryptiq’s newest customer is the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Read More
Given that I’m still happily digging out from an avalanche of new Twitter followers, I’m a little tardy on reporting the news.
So, a number of folks were kind enough to send me links to Techvibes “Portland Start-up Index,” a list of Portland-based startups ranked by averaging their Alexa and Compete ratings.
According to the post, they chose the Rose City because:
Portland’s unique culture, combined with its proximity to Seattle and Silicon Valley make it fertile ground for start-ups.
The list features an apples and oranges combination of both companies and products (which, quite honestly, isn’t immediately obvious to people who don’t
obsess over monitor this stuff as actively as I do). So, companies with multiple products—but only one Web site—like Earth Class Mail (#5) (which unfortunately moved to Seattle to attract funding) and Kryptiq (#20) are mixed in with site-specific products like Matt King‘s Knitmap (#8) and JanRain‘s Pibb (#10).
SplashCast tops the list, with I Want Sandy and MyOpenID rounding out the top three.
Values of n garnered two spots on the index with I Want Sandy and Stikkit (#6). As did JanRain, with MyOpenID and Pibb.
Some notable sites conspicuously absent from the list include Jive Software, Platial, Unthirsty, and AboutUs. But commenters are already noting some of these exclusions.
Techvibes plans to update the list on a regular basis. And, I’m looking forward to seeing a few more of you folks on it, the next time around. Please comment on the post (as a number of folks already have) to ensure that your product or site is listed.

I received word, last night, that Hillsboro-based Kryptiq, makers of technology that streamlines healthcare communications, has been named the fifth most respected company in Oregon—up two spots from last year—by the Portland Business Journal. And, for the second year in a row, it’s also the highest ranking privately held technology company on the list.
Votes were collected from more than 2,000 Oregon-based CEOs who were asked to select the companies they most admire in a number of different industries. In all, 87 different companies were nominated in the technology category. Other organizations recognized in the category include HP, Microsoft, Tektronix, Intel, and Flir Systems.
(I haven’t seen anything from the Portland Business Journal, but I’ll make sure to post once I find it.)
Kryptiq streamlines healthcare communications among patients, providers, pharmacies and health plans with secure messaging, electronic prescribing, disease management and contract management technologies. By integrating these solutions with existing systems and applications, Kryptiq enables the trusted transport of health information where and when it is needed.
