CARROLLTON, Ga., Dec. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Greenway Medical Technologies, Inc. today announced that its fully integrated, single-database electronic health record (EHR), practice management and interoperability solution PrimeSUITE® 2011 received ambulatory and practice management "Best in KLAS" awards in the annual 2010 Top 20 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Professional Services report.
For practices having between six and 25 physicians, PrimeSUITE Chart was named Best in KLAS in ambulatory EMR for the fifth consecutive year, and PrimeSUITE Practice in practice management for the third consecutive year.
The independent KLAS organization's annual health information technology awards result from customer and industry surveys of hospital and clinic executives, administrators, physicians, nurses and other directors and managers interacting with health IT. KLAS routinely surveys more than 4,500 hospitals and 2,500 ambulatory organizations annually. Ratings are based on a set of 25 key questions in the areas of sales and contracting, implementation and training, functionality and upgrades, service, support and general scoring.
"We have a passion at Greenway to see our customers succeed in this ever-changing healthcare landscape. That passion drives us to build partnerships with our customers, and we believe that is why they are thriving," said Greenway® President and CEO Tee Green. "Each year the annual KLAS awards humble us and remind us of our mission to provide the best possible healthcare technology infrastructure to enable providers to offer the most advanced healthcare solutions to their patients. We appreciate the diligence KLAS brings to its annual rankings, and its role as a source of excellence and referral in this critical industry."
"Since 1998 the objective of the Best in KLAS Awards report has been to help healthcare providers make informed decisions," said Adam Gale, KLAS President. "This year we have included two new sections in the report—the 'Overall Software Suite Rankings' and 'Disclosure Levels.' The disclosure levels provide a transparent view into the vendor's willingness to share a complete client list with KLAS, which provides a more inclusive assessment of their products' performance. We believe these additions bring clarity to providers when making healthcare technology decisions."
