Coastal's ranking was published in the 2008 Top 20 Year-End Report Card released today by KLAS Enterprises, LLC (KLAS). The ranking is based on direct performance feedback received from healthcare providers who have used Coastal's consulting resources and tools for a portion of a healthcare information system implementation or upgrade project.
"We are very proud to receive our fourth 'Best in KLAS' award as it shows that Coastal is consistently able to deliver value to our clients," said Amy Collins, President of Coastal Healthcare Consulting.

"As economic conditions become more challenging, healthcare providers are under tremendous pressure to make every investment -- and every dollar -- count," said KLAS President Adam Gale. "The Best in KLAS awards were created to help providers make smart buying decisions, allowing them to cut through the hype to identify companies, products and services that are the best-performing in the healthcare industry.
