Impact Advisors, a leading healthcare consultancy providing strategy, operations, revenue cycle, and technology services, was named No.1 Best in KLAS for Security & Privacy Consulting Services in the 2022 Best in KLAS: Software and Services Report, making it the firm’s 24th KLAS distinction, which is more than double other service providers. This recognition marks the 15th consecutive year the firm has been recognized by KLAS with awards in a variety of services, which is every year since its founding.

Top ranked for security and privacy services

The Best in KLAS Security & Privacy Consulting Services designation is reserved for consultants that help organizations assess, enhance, and develop security and privacy programs through technical or advisory work, which should result in a more secure and private environment. (i.e., security risk assessment, HIPAA privacy assessment, virtual/interim CISO, and penetration, vulnerability, network web application, security testing).

“Security continues to be a top priority for our clients, so we are excited to provide the high-quality services they need to keep their patients and families safe,” said Pete Smith, co-CEO and co-founder of Impact Advisors. “The proactive and actionable security services we offer follow leading healthcare best practices and industry standards, and our associates are some of the top experts in the industry. We are humbled by the comments from our clients and are proud they are seeing the value in our services.”

Impact Advisors received an A+ score in the categories of loyalty, operations, services, relationships, and value and out of those clients interviewed, 100 percent said the firm exceeded their expectations, and they would buy again.

A health system CIO client shared his experience from September 2021, “Over the years, we have tended to work with a lot of different security firms, and Impact Advisors is right at the top. We have had some good firms, poor firms and mediocre firms, but Impact Advisors did a thorough, accurate and timely assessment. All of those things are important when the board is interested in the results. Impact Advisors did a great job of explaining the results to the risk compliance committee. Engagements with other firms didn’t go as well, but our engagement with Impact Advisors went really well.”

15 years of KLAS recognitions

“This year’s recognition is especially important to our firm as we commemorate our 15-year anniversary and 15 years of receiving accolades from KLAS,” said Andy Smith, Co-CEO and co-founder of Impact Advisors. “We are honored that our clients continue to be highly satisfied with our partnership and services and we look forward to celebrating this achievement with our associates.”
