Philips First in KLAS for Two Cardiology Categories


February 12, 2008

February 12, 2008 – KLAS named Philips the KLAS General Market Software Category Leader for Cardiology Reporting & Documentation and the General Market Software Category Leader for Cardiology Hemodynamics, designating Philips as the only vendor to win two KLAS awards for cardiology technologies in the 2007 Top 20 Year End Best in KLAS Awards.

Philips earned the former award for its Xcelera cardiovascular image management, analysis and reporting solution. It won the latter for its Philips Series IV physiomonitoring and information system, which is the backbone of the new Philips Xper Information Management catheterization (cath) lab workflow solution that was introduced last year.

Philips’ KLAS ratings are published in the Top 20: 2007 Year-End Best in KLAS report. This report reflects the summary of HIT software, services and medical equipment performance data as reported by physician offices, clinics, IDNs, inpatient facilities and applicable healthcare agencies. Each product or service is categorized into a market segment where similar products and services are compared and ranked against one another. HIT software and medical equipment scores represent performance data collected over 13 months (Oct. 15, 2006 – Nov. 15, 2007).

The KLAS awards will be formally presented at the 2008 Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference and exhibition in Orlando, FL, Feb. 25 - 28. Visitors can experience Philips award winning technologies and innovative solutions at HIMSS, booth #6443.
