Healthcare Providers Rate Elekta's MOSAIQ Oncology Information System as No. 1 in 2010 KLAS Report
Date:10/6/2010

ATLANTA, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ – A recent KLAS survey of 137 healthcare providers show high satisfaction for Elekta's combined oncology information system (OIS), MOSAIQ® Radiation Oncology / MOSAIQ® Medical Oncology. The integrated MOSAIQ solution—the market's leading open-system, vendor-independent OIS—earned the top ranking. In addition, 88 percent of respondents indicated they would buy MOSAIQ again.

In the KLAS 2010 report, titled The Oncology IT Balancing Act: Integration vs. Functionality, Elekta vaulted over its competitors to claim the No. 1 rank. Customer comments and survey analysis indicated Elekta's focus on service and support, its delivery of solid, all-around functionality—particularly the scheduling module which is a part of MOSAIQ's comprehensive practice management solution—and Elekta's ability to provide "the most consistent client experience, regardless of facility size or geographic region," were key factors in its latest ranking.

Elekta's OIS offerings received top scores in:

  • Product worked as promoted
  • Implementation on time
  • Quality of training
  • Overall product quality
  • Supports integration goals
  • Keeps promises

Elekta also tied for the top scores in:

  • Delivery of new technology
  • Quality of phone / web support
  • Proactive service

"Streamlining information flow in cancer management environments is a top priority among healthcare providers as they work to fulfill federal government guidelines for electronic medical records (EMR) systems as specified in the HITECH Act," says Todd Powell, Executive Vice President Elekta Software.

"We have worked to make our MOSAIQ products not only the most comprehensive, interoperable and robust solutions available, but also equipped them to perform functions that all modern EMRs should have to increase efficiency in patient care," he says. "This report provides yet another example in support of our efforts and shows that we're addressing the issues that our customers believe are the most important."

KLAS independently monitors vendor performance through the active participation of thousands of healthcare organizations and uses a stringent methodology to ensure all data and ratings are accurate, honest and impartial.
