January 29, 2009 - GE Healthcare’s Mac-Lab IT hemodynamic recording and data management solution has received 2008 Category Leader designation in the “Top 20 Best in KLAS Awards: Software and Professional Services” report, published in December.

The software and professional services report ranked the solution best in cardiology hemodynamics, holding a near 5 percent lead over the second ranked provider. GE’s 2008 scores in this category reflect a seven percent improvement over its 2007 report scores. Notably, the report indicates that 91 percent of respondents would buy the GE Healthcare solution again.

The report, which reflected nearly 18,000 evaluations given by healthcare professionals, defines “category leaders” as vendors that have excelled in their respective market segments. This recognition signifies leadership in working with customers to resolve issues and match expectations to reality.
