Waltham, MA (PRWEB) January 30, 2014
PatientKeeper® Inc., a leading provider of healthcare applications for physicians, today announced that PatientKeeper Physician Portal™ has been named the “Clinical Portals/Aggregation Category Leader” for 2013 by KLAS Research, a healthcare technology research firm that specializes in monitoring and reporting the performance of software, services, and medical equipment and infrastructure vendors.
This marks the second consecutive year that PatientKeeper has been recognized by KLAS as the leader in this category.
PatientKeeper’s physician portal provides a unified environment for physicians to work with information from systems across the hospital and community. Architecturally, it is an overlay system sitting on top of the existing information systems in hospitals, clinics and physician practices, so a physician can see all the patient information they need to care for their patients.
One of the unique features of PatientKeeper’s portal is that it can be outfitted with advanced clinical workflow applications, such as CPOE, documentation, medication reconciliation, e-signature and charge capture, making the system both a place where physicians can review data and also act on it without having to access any other system. More than 53,000 physicians at over 400 hospitals and practice groups in the U.S., Canada and the UK use PatientKeeper software.
The “Category Leader” designation is based on provider surveys and interviews that KLAS conducted throughout the year. According to KLAS, “Category Leader” denotes vendors that have excelled in their respective market segments and demonstrated leadership in working with customers to resolve issues and match expectations to reality. It is reserved for vendor products and firms that lead select market segments in the annual Best in KLAS report.
“We are pleased to have been recognized by KLAS as the clinical portals category leader for the second consecutive year,” Paul Brient, PatientKeeper’s president and CEO, said. “PatientKeeper’s portal is at the core of the intuitive user experience we deliver to physicians.”
