LOS ANGELES, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Zynx Health, the market leader in evidence-based clinical decision support (CDS) solutions, today announced that healthcare technology research firm KLAS® has recognized ZynxCare® and ZynxOrder® in recently published reports. The 2012 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Services has designated ZynxCare as Category Leader. Additionally, ZynxCare ranked #1 in the KLAS "Clinical Decision Support - Order Sets and Care Plans" report. In the same report, Zynx was acknowledged as a market pioneer in the development of evidence-based clinical content.
The annual KLAS CDS market report and Best in KLAS Awards rank the top-performing vendors based on direct feedback from healthcare providers. Feedback is compiled from surveys of healthcare executives and administrators, physicians, nurses, and interdisciplinary clinicians regarding their approach and experience using each solution. The rankings honor vendors who best meet their customers' needs when it comes to high-quality products, ongoing service throughout the product's lifecycle, and superior customer experiences.
"Providers recognize the critical nature that vendors play in improving healthcare delivery," said Adam Gale, KLAS President. "Thus, a growing number of providers are weighing in on vendor performance. It speaks volumes that providers want to be heard and be counted. And vendors are listening."
According to the 2012 CDS report, ZynxCare clients praised Zynx for its regular updates to clinical evidence and the company's success in "delivering more practical content that meets the needs of busy nurses." The company's evidence-based order set solution, ZynxOrder, was recognized as having "the broadest order set coverage and the most complete evidence," and outscored its competitors in a majority of performance metrics. Zynx clients also spoke highly of the company's order set evaluation services, ZynxValue+™. The ZynxValue+ suite of services helps organizations address key healthcare initiatives related to improving outcomes and reducing costs. Customized services enable clients to standardize care and work toward satisfying the emerging reimbursement models, achieve incentive payments tied to improved outcomes, meet core measures and other clinical quality measures, reduce care gaps, and drive appropriate utilization.
"We are honored to be recognized as the KLAS Category Leader in the 'Clinical Decision Support – Order Sets and Care Plans' market segment for our ZynxCare solution," said David Cerino, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Zynx. "The ranking is a powerful testament to the positive impact of ZynxCare on hospital and health system workflow. In fact, both KLAS reports illustrate that healthcare organizations trust ZynxCare, ZynxOrder and ZynxValue+ to help measurably improve patient outcomes, enhance patient safety, and lower overall costs."
Zynx is committed to delivering the very best in CDS solutions. The positive provider feedback received through the KLAS market research reports will continue to inform and propel Zynx in the development of market-leading CDS solutions.
