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."

Some vendors excelling in challenging ambulatory (1-10 physician) market

OREM, Utah - March 19, 2015 Cerner and PCC have been rated as the top performers for small physician practices, with Cerner being top rated for broad-use EMRs and PCC for specialty-specific EMRs. This at a time when just more than one-quarter of providers at small practices feel stuck with or plan to leave their current EMR vendor. These findings and more were published in the latest KLAS report, "New Leaders in the Small-Practice Market: Ambulatory EMR Performance 2015 (1-10 Physicians)."


As part of this study, KLAS learned that nine out of 20 small-practice EMR vendors have one-third of their customers wanting or planning to leave. The primary frustrations cited by providers are poor usability, missing functionality, and unreliable vendor support. PCC, Cerner, GE Healthcare, Greenway PrimeSUITE and athenahealth are the only vendors with less than 20% of their customers wanting or planning to leave.

CAC and CDI markets grows as ICD-10 approaches

OREM, Utah - March 12, 2015 
- Health Information Management efficiency is at the forefront of providers' minds as many are consolidating processes and using fewer vendors. As automation drives some technology purchases, providers are evaluating the functions, existing relationships, and vendor promises of each system to determine their vendor of choice. Research published today in KLAS' "HIM Purchasing Plans 2015: Increasing Efficiency through Technology" report indicates that approximately 65% of healthcare providers surveyed by KLAS have chosen their CAC solution, with some even purchasing additional systems from the vendor for interoperability.

EMR market is more competitive as healthcare providers weigh options

OREM, Utah - Feb. 23, 2015 
Stiffer competition between key vendors is causing a growing number of providers to be undecided about which EMR to purchase when looking to make a buying decision. In the KLAS acute care EMR purchasing plans report released today, researchers found that even though providers have fewer choices due to market contraction, they are less likely to have made up their minds about which system to buy when evaluating future purchases.

Energy in the market is being driven largely by legacy customers looking to make a purchasing decision. This report shines a light on which companies are under consideration by providers looking to make a decision and what is fueling that consideration.
