The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives has joined forces with healthcare technology research organization KLAS Enterprises.

Under the terms of the partnership, KLAS will serve as CHIME’s primary research organization and KLAS will work closely with CHIME for best practice information sharing and healthcare information technology research.

“Like KLAS, CHIME is dedicated to helping our members and vendor partners perform at the highest level,” said CHIME Board Chair Randy McCleese. “This mutually beneficial partnership will help strengthen our commitment to industry-high standards in patient care quality, efficiency and safety.”

CHIME executives said the partnership, effective Jan. 1, 2015, is designed to accelerate and enhance industry performance and support all stakeholders in a rapid new era of healthcare transformation. The teaming will include expanded research, benchmarking, award collaboration, and advocacy support.

“Providers want to be heard and counted,” said Kent Gale, founder of KLAS. “Working together with CHIME, we can better amplify the provider voice to help healthcare vendors align their delivery to achieve provider organization success.”
