“KLAS has identified several key elements that must be in place to ensure maximum impact of secure communications within the healthcare enterprise, including strong interfaces, robust functionality, and an ability to meet the needs of a variety of healthcare end users. Our rating in this report confirms that we do in fact have it all – and more,” said Si Luo, CEO, PatientSafe Solutions. “This is also the first year that KLAS has made an effort to differentiate the various secure communications vendors by dividing them into ‘platform’ and ‘basic’ categories. We’re thrilled to see that in the newly designated platform category, we are succeeding and providing a vision for clinical mobility. Our rating in this report is a testament our commitment to our partners’ success, and our knowledge of how to make deployments successful.”
“Our solution’s deep enterprise-wide communication deployments and positive patient identification capabilities (PPID) allow users to quickly and easily engage the full care team, which is vital for timely and effective care delivery,” said Cheryl D. Parker, PhD, RN-BC, FHIMSS, CNIO, PatientSafe Solutions. “Our clinical workflow experience enables us to create strong integration between our messaging solution and multiple EMRs, giving our users easy access to patient data. The contextually-relevant information, available at every point of care, is what sets us apart from all other platform vendors.”
