Provider feedback in the 2020 Best in KLAS Report included the following comments, among others, about Chartis' Clinical Optimization engagements:
From a CMIO, "The clinical optimization of our physician group and our EMR went extremely well. The Chartis Group people were warmly received by our physicians, because The Chartis Group had done a significant amount of planning beforehand. By the time we began our project, the Chartis people were familiar with most of our physicians and vice versa."
From a CIO, "In our complex environment, The Chartis Group is able to do things with a very small, high-performing team. Any other vendor would have to bring in an army and wouldn't be able to move as quickly."
