Technology firm issues top-20 EMR product report

From the May ACP Observer, copyright 2005 by the American College of Physicians.

KLAS Enterprises LLC, a research and consulting firm specializing in health care information technology, recently issued its top 20 ambulatory electronic medical record (EMR) product list. That list—the Best in KLAS awards for late 2004—is based on physician survey responses on ambulatory EMR products.

The products that posted the eight best results in the survey were, in descending order: Eclinicalworks EMR, GE Centricity Physician Office EMR, NextGen EMR, Greenway PrimeSuite Chart, Misys EMR, MediNotes Charting Plus, JMJ Encounter PRO and A4 Healthmatics EMR.

According to this year's KLAS ambulatory survey, 54% of respondents claimed that reduced staffing and costs were important benefits of implementing EMRs, as well as increased efficiency.

KLAS survey forms can be found online.
