In this first-time report, KLAS takes an early look at the various ways organizations that already have a strategy are tackling this challenge and what vendors they are using or considering to help them. Interviews were conducted mainly with C-level executives, mostly from organizations with 500+ beds. Only the strategies and vendors most commonly brought up in interviews are discussed below.
