Seattle, WA (PRWEB) December 16, 2009
Coastal Healthcare Consulting, Inc. (Coastal), an award-winning provider of information technology consulting services for hospitals, announced today that it has received the Best in KLAS designation for the professional services market segment Clinical Implementation – Supportive by KLAS Enterprises, LLC (KLAS). This marks the fifth consecutive Best in KLAS award for Coastal.
Coastal’s ranking was published in the 2009 Top 20 Year-End Report released this week by 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 systems implementation or upgrade project over the past 13 months.
“We are very pleased to be a recipient of the Best in KLAS award for the fifth consecutive year, as it demonstrates Coastal’s ability to exceed client expectations year after year,” said Amy Collins, President of Coastal Healthcare Consulting. “Especially today, as hospitals begin to prepare for the receipt of federal HITECH Act funding to encourage investment in IT infrastructure and electronic health records, it is important for our clients to know that Coastal is a trusted partner to whom they can turn for the quality IT implementation support that their organizations may need.”
“For more than a decade, the Best in KLAS awards have recognized healthcare technology companies that set the standard for delivering the best experience to providers,” said KLAS President Adam Gale. “The Best in KLAS distinction honors more than just a good product or service. It represents a commitment to meeting customer expectations in every phase of the buying process – from the sales presentation to implementation to ongoing service and support.”
