Firm recognized by KLAS as a go-to partner helping providers reshape the industry

We are very proud of our team for continuously delivering crucial insights ... that help our clients ... prepare for the future. - Dan Herman, IT Practice Leader

Today, KLAS released its report, “Healthcare IT Advisory 2016: The Experience Factor,” naming The Chartis Group, a national advisory services firm dedicated to healthcare, as one of the top five comprehensive firms offering a proven breadth of services and depth of experience.

The report is used to assess and identify the top consulting firms in healthcare IT. KLAS categorizes firms into an IT Advisory Services Experience Quadrant. The Chartis Group was categorized in the upper right quadrant for comprehensive firms – market experience leaders with both breadth of capabilities and depth of validated experience that are shaping the market with their ability to lead large-scale, complex engagements and serve as go-to partners for a large number of services.

“When trying to identify potential healthcare IT consulting firms, providers encounter an overwhelming number of choices, making it difficult to sort through the options and identify a good fit,” according to the report. “In this report, KLAS presents a deep dive into which services firms offer, how much experience they have with those services, and the many differentiators that can be useful in determining how well a firm performs.”

Among the Chartis differentiators noted in the report was its strategic competency defined as bringing a big-picture understanding of the healthcare landscape, customizing strategy through client collaboration, and having the experience and perspective to share best practices in healthcare and gleaned from other organizations’ experiences. The Chartis Group had the highest percentage of providers mention strategic competency as its sweet spot. According to the report, “The Chartis Group not only delivers strategic planning to their clients but also ensures clients are supported in executing that plan.”

“We are very proud of our team for continuously delivering crucial insights through actionable plans and recommendations that help our clients improve operations and prepare for the future,” said Daniel S. Herman, Director and Informatics and Technology Practice Leader for The Chartis Group.

Ken Graboys, Co-Founder and CEO adds, “It is a privilege to work side-by-side with our clients each day, doing what we love to do – helping providers leverage technology in innovative, strategic ways that will further advance their journey as an evolved healthcare ecosystem. We thank our clients for this recognition.”
