InterSystems and Sectra Top 2017 Global (Non-US) Best in KLAS Awards

Providers express interest in PACS, population health and deep adoption of healthcare IT solutions

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, January 31, 2017 – InterSystems and Sectra topped the 2017 Global (Non-US) Best in KLAS: Software report, published today, which names the top-performing healthcare IT software suppliers in global markets as reported by providers. InterSystems won two Best in KLAS awards – for Acute Care EMR and Patient Administration Systems, and three Category Leader awards. Sectra earned one Best in KLAS award – for PACS, and one Category Leader award.

The Global Best in KLAS report examines the performance of healthcare IT products in regions outside the United States, including Asia/Oceania, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America. This year’s report gives Best in KLAS awards for products in three market segments: acute care EMRs, patient administration systems (PAS), and PACS products.

The report found that PACS is still one of the hottest purchasing areas, but that global providers are looking for more holistic, enterprise imaging solutions. The report found that interest in population health by providers is at an early stage, but growing. Providers also cited a need for suppliers who can go beyond selling functionality and help them achieve deep, multi-department adoption of documentation, CPOE, ePrescribing and other capabilities.

“The Best in KLAS report celebrates and recognizes suppliers who have made significant strides to improve healthcare,” said Adam Gale, President of KLAS. “The KLAS team applauds your efforts and acknowledges your commitment to innovation and achievement. As the years go by, we are continually humbled by the number of healthcare providers who share their experiences with us. They make all our reports, especially our Best in KLAS report, possible.”

The title of Best in KLAS is hard-earned recognition from providers of outstanding efforts by suppliers to help healthcare professionals deliver better patient care. It is reserved for supplier solutions that lead the software market segments with the broadest operational and clinical impact on healthcare organizations and their patients.
