KLAS lists top applications hospitals need to operate successfully

In its annual Best in KLAS report on healthcare IT products and services, KLAS Enterprises, the Orem, Utah-based research and consulting firm, ranks top applications for a variety of crucial operations within facilities. KLAS bases its rankings by measuring vendor satisfaction rates of users, based on thousands of interviews with hospitals and physician practices during the past year.
