KLAS announces top-performing Healthcare IT software and services vendors for 2008

The 2008 Top 20 Best in KLAS Awards lists top Healthcare IT vendors in a number of software categories (view Top 20,) as well as several professional services categories.

KLAS Founder and Chairman Kent Gale said more than 1,500 interviews were conducted. Gale added that KLAS is developing new categories and refining others based on the comments received during the interview process. The company has added cardiology as a category, he pointed out, while it is working on designations for RFID assets and labor and delivery and others.

As the Clinical Portal category is relatively new, KLAS does not yet extend a “Best in KLAS” rating, however MEDSEEK is the Category Leader for Clinical Portals in the recent report. (View Report)

"Since 1998, the Top 20 Best in KLAS Awards report has been shining a light on the performance of vendors throughout the healthcare industry," said KLAS President Adam Gale in a press release. "Today the objective of the report remains the same: To help healthcare providers make informed decisions, whether they're looking to buy technology, review a current vendor, validate an operational decision or determine the right products to remain after a merger."
