Highest-Energy HIT Vendors: Who Satisfies and Keeps Their Customers?

In decisions across the entire HIT software spectrum in 2019, 32 vendors received at least 15 considerations. These vendors with high market energy may or may not be direct competitors with each other. Only 7 of the 32 can also boast both high customer satisfaction (overall performance score above 85) and high customer retention (>90% of current customers on go-forward solution planning to stay).

Most Replacement Decisions Still Hinge on Functionality, Consolidation, and Integration

As healthcare providers seek reliable systems that streamline their workflow, functionality, consolidation, and integration remain the top three most common reasons organizations replace their HIT solutions. Support and cost/price were both mentioned more often this year than last year as major replacement decision factors, but cost/price still remains outside the top 5.
