Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) September 4, 2008 -- MEDSEEK, a leading provider of enterprise portal management solutions, announced today it leads in KLAS® rankings for its Clinical Web Portal software solution.

KLAS® is an independent healthcare market research firm that gathers data about clinical portal solutions from CIO's, Directors, and other healthcare providers about software functionality, solution performance, technical support and service. According to the August 26, 2008 Platinum KLAS ® database, MEDSEEK has the highest current performance ratings, outscoring all other clinical portal solutions.

Peter Kuhn, President of MEDSEEK commented, "MEDSEEK's superior ranking in the KLAS ® report highlights our effort to provide comprehensive eHealth solutions." Kuhn added, "We frequently receive high praise from our clients on our ability to deliver complex installations on time and on budget. The KLAS rating validates our reputation as an organization that consistently delivers on our commitments."

The KLAS® database also reports anonymous comments from providers who are using the eConnect Clinical Portal solution: "The implementation process was very smooth. It was very well planned and organized and was executed according to that plan. The planning was very thorough and there were few surprises and gotchas along the way. The implementation staff MEDSEEK provided was very knowledgeable. They were excellent communicators. We were able to install the system on time and within budget.” (Quoted from a healthcare provider interviewed by KLAS, see KLAS® commentary August 26, 2008.)

"MEDSEEK eConnect is the perfect portal solution for our physicians who do not want to learn the complexities of using the PACS and hospital clinical systems. This product is a single sign-on system that helps doctors get to patient information quickly. We have heard nothing negative from the physicians. All of the feedback about using eConnect for pulling results has been good, and the doctors love being able to pull images by using a URL." (From the KLAS ® database, August 26, 2008.)

Michelle Wickham, Research Director for KLAS stated, "KLAS applauds those vendors who utilize KLAS® data to understand and respond to their customers' needs.
