The lineup represents the most comprehensive look at a vital component of the economy—America’s independent businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Zipcar, Clif Bar, Oracle, and many other well-known names have been members of the Inc. 500|5000.

“Joining this roster of incredible companies for the sixth year in a row reflects Rising’s passionate people, team-oriented culture and innovative technologies. We’ve grown substantially since starting out as a two-person company, and every employee – new or with us since day one – has been a contributor to this success,” says Jason Beans, Founder and CEO of Rising.

In a stagnant economic environment, median growth rate of 2013 Inc. 500|5000 companies is an impressive 142 percent. The companies on this year’s list report having created more than 520,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $241 billion.

Every day Rising’s programs, proprietary technologies and people help improve efficiencies and save America’s healthcare system from costly waste in the form of inappropriate charges and fraud. The company estimates its medical bill savings equate to 120,867 years of employment added back to the economy. Beyond pure cost savings, Rising’s medical care management programs and pharmacy analytics – recently honored as a 2013 Top 10 Innovation by Business Insurance – help patients get healthier, faster.
