CINCINNATI, Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- With an overall performance score of 91.9 out of 100, clinical communication leader Doc Halo ranked No. 1 among competitors to earn the coveted KLAS Category Leader designation for Standard Secure Messaging. The honor was announced today in the 2017 Best in KLAS: Software & Services report.
The Best in KLAS report is published by KLAS, a research organization dedicated to improving the delivery of healthcare technology by independently measuring and reporting on vendor performance. In compiling the rankings, KLAS researchers collect feedback directly from healthcare providers who are using the technology.
"We are gratified to learn how much Doc Halo is improving workflow and patient care for our customers," says Jose Barreau, MD, CEO of Doc Halo. "Faster, more reliable clinical communication is at the heart of coordinating care, reducing readmissions and improving outcomes."
In an earlier KLAS report published in November, Secure Communication 2016: Vendors Transitioning to Secure Communication Platforms, Doc Halo earned the highest marks for care team communication among standard secure messaging vendors. Doc Halo was also rated by customers as having the highest performance scores in nearly every category, including a perfect score for "Would You Buy Again." Survey respondents cited pager replacement, faster communication and the security of knowing that nothing "gets lost in translation" as key benefits.
Clinical communication initiatives are rapidly moving to the forefront as health systems focus on care coordination and the transitions of care. The Joint Commission has identified communication failures to be a leading cause of sentinel events.
