Firm earns recognition in three categories

CHICAGO (January 31, 2019) – Impact Advisors, LLC, a leading provider of clinical, revenue cycle and information technology services to the healthcare industry, announced today that it has been named Best in KLAS #1 Overall IT Services Firm for the fifth time. The firm was also named #1 Best in KLAS in HIT Enterprise Implementation Leadership and Category Leader in Clinical Optimization in the 2019 Best in KLAS: Software and Services report. These recognitions make it the 12th consecutive year the firm has been recognized by KLAS.

The Best in KLAS Overall IT Services Firm ranking is reserved for those firms that have at least three separate IT services that meet the minimum “KLAS Konfidence” level in three separate market segments. Ranking #1 on the list, Impact Advisors received above average or well above average rankings in all six categories, which are culture, loyalty, operations, product, relationship and value.

“This industry recognition is one of the most meaningful to us because it is a reflection of the quality of service and value we provide to our clients,” said Peter Smith, CEO and Co-Founder of Impact Advisors. “We are humbled by the support of our clients and proud of the dedication and passion of our Associates. We will continue to live our mission of creating a positive Impact for our clients by helping put the strategies in place to help reach their ultimate goal of providing high-quality service and exceptional patient care.”

Best in KLAS is a recognition of outstanding efforts to help healthcare organizations in their quest to deliver quality patient care. The Best in KLAS report ranks healthcare IT software and services vendors across numerous market segments and contains two types of awards for various healthcare IT markets: the Best in KLAS award and the Category Leader award. The Best in KLAS designation is awarded only in those software and services market segments that have the broadest operational and clinical impact on healthcare organizations. Market segments that are assigned Category Leader awards are new or niche segments with a focused impact across many health systems.

The Best in KLAS HIT Enterprise Implementation Leadership designation is reserved for vendors that provide outstanding efforts to help healthcare organizations in their quest to deliver quality patient care.

The Clinical Optimization Category Leader designation is reserved for use in select market segments that don’t qualify for Best in KLAS, but in which at least two products meet a minimum level of “KLAS Konfidence.” Like Best in KLAS winners, vendors awarded a Category Leader designation stand out for helping healthcare organizations deliver quality patient care.

Impact Advisors ranked a close second in the Revenue Cycle Optimization category, as well.

“Best in KLAS is about raising the bar for healthcare technology,” said Adam Gale. “Its providers and payers demand better performance, usability and interoperability. Ultimately, Best in KLAS is about giving providers and payers the tools they need to facilitate superior care and improved outcomes.”

Impact Advisors will be attending the Best in KLAS Awards Ceremony on Feb. 11 in Orlando.
