PatientKeeper Named 2012 Category Leader for Clinical Portals/Aggregation by KLAS Research
WALTHAM, MA – Dec. 18, 2012 – PatientKeeper® Inc., the leading provider of healthcare applications for physicians, today announced that PatientKeeper Physician Portal™ has been named the “Clinical Portals/Aggregation Category Leader” for 2012 by KLAS Research, a healthcare technology research firm that specializes in monitoring and reporting the performance of software, services, and medical equipment, and infrastructure vendors.
PatientKeeper Physician Portal provides a unified environment for physicians to work with information from systems across the hospital and community. It functions as a “physician overlay” so physicians can get all the patient information they need efficiently, using a single log-in and password, rather than continually signing in and out of multiple systems.
PatientKeeper’s platform allows for the addition of advanced clinical workflow applications, such as CPOE, medication reconciliation, e-signature and charge capture, so physicians can review and act on patient information from a single, physician-friendly work environment. More than 50,000 physicians at 400 hospitals and practice groups in the U.S., Canada and the UK use PatientKeeper software.
The “Category Leader” designation is based on healthcare IT user surveys and interviews that KLAS conducted throughout the year. According to KLAS, “Category Leader” denotes vendors that haveexcelled in their respective market segments and demonstrated leadership in working with customers to resolve issues and match expectations to reality. It is reserved for vendor products and firms that lead select market segments in the annual Best in KLAS report.
“We are delighted that KLAS’s research supports what we hear from our customers every day – that PatientKeeper’s portal makes physicians more efficient and delivers a superior user experience,” Paul Brient, PatientKeeper’s president and CEO, said.
