About the business:
TPR Media, founded in 2002 in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, is a web-based healthcare content provider and communications services company that allows healthcare providers complete control and measurement over how they interact with patients. CEO Betsy Weaver wants the company to incorporate all forms of social media and texting and took a step toward this goal in January 2011 with the launch of Ubicare, a healthcare content marketplace for social media.

The Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) defines inner cities as core urban areas with higher unemployment and poverty rates and lower median incomes than their surrounding metropolitan statistical areas. For the 2012 list, ICIC received more than 2,000 solicited nominations using its database of small businesses and through the support of its nominating partners, including the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Staples, New York City Department of Small Business Services, and the U.S. Conference of Mayors. Companies were ranked by compound annual growth rate (CAGR) based on their revenue over the five-year period between 2006 and 2010, the last year for which complete data was available. This list was audited by the independent accounting firm of Rucci Bardaro and Barrett, PC.
