KLAS shifts report release date to better reflect the vendors' calendar-year performance.

Orem, UT - September 6, 2013- KLAS announced today that it is making changes to a long-standing tradition by moving the release dates for their annual Best in KLAS rankings. Starting with the next release, the Best in KLAS Software and Services report will be published at the end of January instead of in December. The Best in KLAS Medical Equipment and Infrastructure report will now be published at the end of July.

KLAS made the change as part of their continued efforts to provide the most accurate data to providers. The date change will allow KLAS to include a more comprehensive set of data from the calendar year for which the awards are being presented. KLAS will still present the awards at the annual HIMSS conference in February.

Despite providers' cries for a holistic solution, bolt-on solutions still lead out in accomplishing providers' objectives

Orem, UT - September 4, 2013- An early look into enterprise patient access reveals that a select few innovative vendors are heeding the providers' call for a more holistic, workflow-driven approach. The KLAS report entitled Enterprise Patient Access 2013: Trying to Solve Patient Access Challenges shows that Emdeon, Passport, RelayHealth and SCI Solutions are leading a charge for an enterprise solution to help facilities realize financial efficiency on the front end.

But with the absence of a proven enterprise strategy, most facilities continue to look to bolt-ons from multiple vendors to accomplish tasks such as financial clearance, financial advocacy and patient liability. Providers are seeking partnerships with those vendors who really understand their concerns and can bring solutions with integration, automation and estimation services.

KLAS examines changes in clinical vendor market share in large hospitals

Orem, UT - August 27, 2013 - Cerner and Epic combined captured more than three-fourths of new large-hospital EMR contracts, while the other vendors struggled to keep pace. This according to the latest KLAS report, Clinical Market Share 2013: More than Meaningful Use.

The report focuses on which vendors are capturing the most market share in the large-hospital space and which ones are losing. Additionally, the report focuses on the reasons behind the wins and losses and looks at such areas as usability and provider satisfaction.

"The HITECH Act that started this mass migration is clearly not over. There are over 400 large hospitals that still do not utilize a currently marketed EMR and thus still face a decision," said report author Colin Buckley. "The question is which way they will go and which factors will guide that decision."

Orem, UT - August 6, 2013 - Seventy-nine percent of providers using clinical decision support surveillance software report that utilizing the technology has a moderate to significant impact on clinical outcomes.

The study represents the voice of 140 providers currently using surveillance-specific products or surveillance functionality within their EMR, each answering the following questions: How big of an impact is surveillance having today? How capable are these systems out of the box? How easy are they to customize?

KLAS reveals the progress, benefits and obstacles of Smart Pump/EMR Integration and which vendors are best positioned to help.

Orem, UT - August 1, 2013 - The momentum surrounding the adoption of integrating smart pumps and EMR technology is outweighing the myriad of integration challenges facing providers.  In a recent report entitled Smart Pump/EMR Integration: Not Easy, but Worth the Effort, early adopters share their insights, progress, and the impact this technology is having in their organizations.  

"Providers make it clear that they feel smart pump and EMR integration is the future of how IV medications will be administered," said Coray Tate, report author for the Smart Pumps 2013 Report from KLAS. "They see integration as a big step forward in patient safety, one that will one day be the industry standard. The question on everyone's mind is, 'how far away is the future?'"
