Auckland software firm Orion Health has picked up an award from the American Chamber of Commerce as it tracks towards a listing on the NZX this year.

The health software firm was named the supreme winner of the chamber's Innovation Awards for the second time, after first winning the same award in 2005. In the interim, its annual exports to the United States have increased 16 times to reach $88 million.

Chief executive Ian McCrae said it was benefiting from having built solid relationships within the US over the last 15 years.

Sources said Orion still expected to list on the NZX towards the end of the year, despite recent market turbulence. Orion employs 1100 staff and its float, if confirmed, is likely to be the biggest of the current spate of tech listings.
