The KLAS report covers a wide range of healthcare technology and services, including electronic health records (EHRs), revenue cycle management (RCM) systems, population health management (PHM) systems, and healthcare safety and compliance solutions, among others. Within each category, the report ranks companies based on a variety of factors, including customer satisfaction, product functionality, and overall performance.

The designation is a testament to the company's ability to provide high-quality products and services that meet the ever-evolving needs of healthcare providers and their patients.

New call-to-action

What does KLAS consider when ranking companies?

As business and healthcare both become more data-driven, the need for transparency is paramount. Which is why KLAS Research conducts thorough due diligence when investigating and ranking health IT companies.

  • Honest review: When you’re buying a large-scale software suite, the need for an unbiased, balanced review is paramount. KLAS Research is praised for its honest, fair reviews, without kickbacks or other incentives tied up in the vendor evaluation process. With a commitment to integrity and transparency, you can trust the reviews you read knowing they’re not paid for.
  • Client-provided feedback: KLAS data scientists analyze the numbers to understand where healthcare safety and other healthcare IT vendors stand. In addition, KLAS also conducts in-depth interviews with clients of vendors to learn more about the human side of their business. Are customers satisfied with their products – and their relationship with the vendor? Has their organization benefited from adopting the vendor’s software? Questions like these are addressed during the KLAS research process, and the results of these customer interviews weigh heavily in KLAS annual industry rankings.
  • Holistic view of business: KLAS Research understands the growing demand for ethically-run businesses, and incorporates ratings in ethical categories into their vendor rankings. Does the vendor act ethically? Are they trustworthy? KLAS has a thorough vetting process that addresses all aspects of a vendor’s operations.

Why does a high score matter?
