KLAS Enterprises, an independent healthcare IT vendor research firm, published its annual ÂTOP 20: Year-End Best in KLASÂ awards today reporting that Unibased Systems Architecture, Inc. (Unibased) was positioned 1st as the ÂBest in KLASÂ in two different market solution categories, including Enterprise Scheduling and Surgery Management based on confidential surveys of healthcare executives, managers and clinicians from over 4,500 hospitals and 2,500 clinics. Unibased also secured the #2 and #5 positions overall among the 400 healthcare information technology vendors considered beating out mega-firms such as GE, McKesson, Cerner, Siemens and others.
KLAS Enterprises, founded in 1996, is the only research and consulting firm specializing in monitoring and reporting the performance of healthcare's information technology (HIT) vendors. To ensure a candid collection of performance data, KLAS uses a two-step approach, first collecting a series of product/vendor evaluations covering more than 40 performance areas and then conducting in-depth, confidential interviews covering 500 products. The TOP 20: Year-End Best in KLAS report reflects the summary of HIT product performance data collected over a 13-month period.
Unibased, the Scheduling Company, provides the complete alignment and monitoring of healthcare services and enterprise related resources in order to meet the coordinated agenda needs of physicians and patients. ÂThe first contact with the patient is where effective care delivery begins. It continues through the visits, tests, and operative procedures that have been scheduled for the organized, efficient care of the patient as well as convenience to the physicians. Eliminating the manual processes and seamlessly connecting the resources, processes, and information with our solutions allows our clients to focus on patient care and revenue-generating activitiesÂ, said J. R. Digman, Vice President Field Technical Services of Unibased. ÂOur solutions can have significant, measurable impact on critical issues like patient safety, speed of diagnosis and treatment, and our customerÂs bottom line - the rankings by our clients, who use our products every day, reinforce that fact.Â
ÂWe are pleased that our solutions have once again been recognized by KLAS Enterprises and our clients as the industry's leading enterprise scheduling and surgery management solutions," said Barry M. Rundquist, CEO. ÂThese awards are further evidence of UnibasedÂs commitment to client satisfaction and to our continued development efforts to ensure that our products and services meet the evolving needs of today's healthcare organizations."
