Latest news and announcements from the industry

OREM, Utah - Sep. 10, 2015 - Keeping patients' sensitive information confidential is paramount to healthcare providers, but it's becoming more difficult in a digital world.

This inaugural security report, "Health Data Security: 155 Vendors Identified-Who is Protecting Your Data?", discusses these findings as well as highlights which vendors offer what solutions and helps shine a light on the gaps the industry is facing as a whole.

KLAS report examines acute care EMR usability progress over the past two years
OREM, Utah - April 29, 2015 Epic continues their industry-leading usability performance, Cerner's customers are making the most usability progress, and MEDITECH distinguishes themselves as having made up the most ground. The latest KLAS report on EMR usability charts product performance over the past two years. The report, entitled Physician Leadership Weighs In on Acute Care EMR Usability, compares usability performance in the acute care EMR market segment.


As part of this report, KLAS interviewed physician leadership at 110 healthcare organizations across the country. In addition to collecting data about the usability of the various modules (physician documentation, CPOE, medication reconciliation, problem lists and CDS), KLAS asked these leaders to give perspectives on three overarching aspects of EMR usability: productivity, effectiveness and user interface. The results were then compared to usability performance metrics from KLAS' last usability report two years ago to create a holistic view of each of the product's progress since 2013.

These findings and more are included in the recent KLAS report entitled "Patient Portals 2015: Adoption beyond Meaningful Use."


As part of this report, KLAS interviewed 186 healthcare provider organizations to determine which vendors have proven to best meet current needs while also developing solutions for a more strategic tomorrow. The report analyzes three flavors of portals: enterprise, ambulatory and EMR agnostic. The focus of the report is to examine product performance, vendor guidance and other factors that impact providers' ability to achieve success with patient portal adoption.

Providers turn to healthcare BI/Analytics vendors for expertise
OREM, Utah - March 31, 2015 As healthcare providers place more priority and focus on BI, they recognize the growing complexities of it and look for much-needed healthcare expertise and content among BI vendors.  Along with this search for healthcare expertise comes the realization that in-organization data is only a part of today's healthcare picture and that data aggregration capabilities, particularly those for organization outside of the four walls of the hospital, are more important than ever before.  These findings and more are revealed in the latest KLAS report, entitled Health Analytics 2015: Moving toward the Continuum of Care.


"While providers' choices for vendor products and platforms are broad, some key trends are forming," said report author, Joe Van De Graaff. "Among these are a notable gap of healthcare expertise among BI vendors, increased complexity in data aggregation, and a heightened call for analytics solutions for the continuum of care. The search is on for the vendor who can deliver."
