KLAS gathers opinions of thousands of healthcare professionals

The KLAS awards are based on data from customer surveys of hospital and clinic executives, administrators, physicians, nurses and other directors and managers interacting with healthcare equipment and infrastructure solutions.

According to KLAS, Best in KLAS designations go to solutions that have excelled in their respective market segments, that show the vendor's leadership in working with customers to resolve issues and match expectations to reality, and that have the broadest operational and clinical impact to healthcare organizations.

"Vendors who are recognized with a Best in KLAS award are those who have gone above and beyond their customers' expectations. The goal and the value of the awards is to ultimately help providers and the industry easily identify which vendors are consistently performing well," said Adam Gale, president of KLAS.
