Lenexa, Kan. (PRWEB) January 30, 2014
Sagacious Consultants, the premier full-service Epic consulting company, is the top-ranked vendor in the Clinical Implementation Supportive category, according to the 2013 Best in KLAS: Software & Services Report*. In the report released today, KLAS ranked Sagacious Consultants first above all KLAS-rated service firms in its category.
EMR implementations have become ubiquitous across healthcare organizations, spurred by government incentives and meaningful use requirements. As one of the most complex projects an organization can take on, an EMR implementation requires a support team with a deep understanding of the software and organizational workflows.
In KLAS’ Clinical Implementation Supportive market segment, Sagacious earned an overall score of 96.5 points out of a possible 100 points. To evaluate service firms, KLAS uses satisfaction data provided by healthcare executives, managers and clinicians. They rated Sagacious Consultants on sales and contracting; implementation and training; service and support; and general and overall services.
Some Healthcare executives commended Sagacious Consultants on their expertise in Epic EMR solutions and for having responsive leaders and consultants who are professional, flexible and adept at identifying issues and customizing solutions for clients. One manager reported, “They have an understanding of both the system and the operations. They know the system well enough to make creative leaps so that we aren’t using canned functionality; we are actually able to develop new procedures, break outside of the standard model, and really custom fit the system to our business.”
“We are honored to be named Best in KLAS for our support of EMR implementations,” said Shane Adams, Sagacious Consultants Founder and CEO. “This award represents the voices of the customers we serve and we believe that it validates our dedication to retaining the best former-Epic consultants. We’re committed to building long-term relationships with all of our customers, providing unmatched support, not only during implementation, but well into the future with a wide solution offering aimed at increasing revenue, reducing costs, improving patient care, increasing end user happiness and adoption, and improving analytics.”
Sagacious Consultants will receive an award alongside other winners at the Best in KLAS Award Ceremony on February 23, 2014, during the HIMSS Conference in Orlando, Fla. In addition to winning Best in KLAS for Clinical Implementation Supportive, Sagacious Consultants also ranks third in the Staff Augmentation market segment, which includes firms who provide resources to fill vacancies or get additional work done.
