IBM Watson health companies awarded five Best in KLAS designations

28 Jan 2016 Cambridge - The 2015/2016 Best in KLAS: Software & Services report recognized two of IBM Watson Health's newly acquired companies for population health and imaging solutions. IBM company Phytel's population health solution suite was named Best in KLAS for the population health category, and IBM Company Merge Healthcare was awarded three Best in KLAS designations and its Hemodynamic solution was named KLAS Category Leader for the fifth consecutive year.

Phytel, an IBM company that empowers physician-led population health improvement, was named Best in KLAS in the Population Health Management category by the 2015/2016 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Services report. This marks the second year Phytel has been recognized by KLAS as a top vendor in the population health space. IBM acquired Phytel last year.

"Provider organisations are seeking intuitive, enterprise solutions that are equipped with the ability to effectively help doctors and nurses manage chronic care and help keep individuals actively engaged in their care", stated Deborah DiSanzo, General Manager of IBM Watson Health. "Being recognized by KLAS and awarded the coveted Best in KLAS designation reaffirms that IBM Watson Health is playing a key role in meeting this industry need and shaping the future of population health."

Merge Healthcare, an IBM company, and provider of clinical systems and innovations that seek to advance health care, was recognized by the report as a leader in imaging solutions, receiving four distinguished awards from KLAS. The 2015/2016 Best in KLAS: Software & Services report has named Merge Cardio, Merge Unity RIS and Merge's iConnect Enterprise Archive Best in KLAS for the cardiology, radiology and VNA/image archive categories, respectively. In addition, Merge Hemo has been named the KLAS Category Leader in cardiology hemodynamics. This marks the fifth consecutive win for Merge Hemo, third consecutive win for Merge Cardio and second consecutive win for Merge Unity RIS.

"The fact that four of Merge's solutions were singled out for recognition by KLAS is rewarding and a direct reflection of our close client collaborations that enable us to build on our successes and continue exceeding expectations even as needs change", stated Justin Dearborn, CEO of Merge Healthcare. "Being named a top solution year after year reaffirms that Merge is playing a key role in shaping the future of imaging management."

The 2015/2016 Best in KLAS: Software & Services report provides a high-level overview of performance ratings for vendors offering software, professional services and medical equipment to the health care industry. Phytel received an overall score of 87.2. Merge Cardio received an overall score of 76.9, Merge Unity RIS received an overall score of 89.3, Merge's iConnect Enterprise Archive received an overall score of 85.3 and Merge Hemo received an overall score of 85.4.
