New vendor rankings published today in the “2016 Best in KLAS: Medical Equipment” report. Siemens earned the distinction of number one Overall Imaging Equipment Suite for the second consecutive year. Shimadzu and Omnicell were among only three vendors (including Siemens) to win multiple awards this year. Shimadzu won Best in KLAS for X-ray and Category Leader for Portable X-ray, while Omnicell won Best in KLAS for Automated Dispensing Cabinets and Category Leader for Pharmacy Automation: Medication Carousels. Hologic Mammography is the highest–scoring imaging equipment, with a score of 8.3 out of 9.0.

The report provides a summary of the KLAS performance ratings gathered during the past 12 months in 13 market segments. Each segment includes a listing of vendor products ranked according to their KLAS performance scores, which have been compiled from the feedback of thousands of healthcare providers throughout the United States and Canada.
