SPOKANE, Wash. (February 2, 2021) – Engage, a Tegria company, is pleased to announce that KLAS has recognized Engage as a leader in health information technology (HIT). In its annual report, 2021 Best in KLAS: Software and Services, KLAS named Engage as the top vendor in two categories: “HIT Implementation Leadership – Large” and “Go-Live Support.”
“Engage is honored by the trust our customers place in us every day as we aim to help them deliver better and more efficient patient care,” said Engage CEO Fred Galusha. “Our customers’ success is our highest priority, and this recognition from KLAS is a great validation of the remarkable work our teams have done to innovate in the health information technology space.”
KLAS performs extensive research through interviews with healthcare providers on key solutions and services vendors in the HIT industry. Using that data, KLAS then does quality checks and compiles the data to share back findings and trends with provider organizations and vendors anonymously.
Engage’s Best in KLAS ranking for HIT Implementation Leadership – Large reflects the company’s diligent support for hospitals and health systems working to implement MEDITECH’s Expanse, MEDITECH’s latest generation EHR software. In 2020 alone, Engage had the privilege of working with more than 12 hospitals and health systems, each project meeting all timelines, budgets, and deliverables.
Engage was also recognized as Best in KLAS for Go-Live Support. Engage’s go-live support is an extension of their implementation services and is led out by the same consulting team that led the implementation project. In addition to on-site analysts, Engage provides customers with a detailed playbook to ensure a smooth transition to the new EHR.
Engage and Navin Haffty, also a Tegria company, recently combined forces to offer a complete MEDITECH solution to the market. As the premier MEDITECH collaborative solutions providers and READY-certified firms, Engage and Navin Haffty help clients maximize the value of the MEDITECH EHR, providing them with the peace of mind needed to focus on the business of delivering the best patient care.
Together, the firms joined KLAS Arch Collaborative to provide future MEDITECH implementation customers with benchmarking assessments and data to solidify caregiver satisfaction with newly implemented EHRs.
“Each year, thousands of healthcare professionals across the globe take the time to share their voice with KLAS. They know that sharing their perspective helps vendors to improve and helps their peers make better decisions. These conversations are a constant reminder to me of how necessary accurate, honest, and impartial reporting is in the healthcare industry. The Best in KLAS report and the awards it contains set the standard of excellence for software and services firms. Vendors who win the title of “Best in KLAS” should celebrate and remember that providers now accept only the best from their products and services. The Best in KLAS award serves as a signal to provider and payer organizations that they should expect excellence from the winning vendors,” said Adam Gale, president of KLAS.
Engage is now part of Tegria.
