December 11, 2014 — Forty-five percent of providers interviewed by KLAS are planning to consolidate their cardiovascular information systems (CVIS) products, but less than half plan to stick with their current vendor/solution. This and other key findings about the patient access segment are revealed in the latest KLAS report.

In terms of overall performance, Merge leads the pack, trailed by Philips and Siemens. Other vendors included in the study are Agfa HealthCare, Digisonics, Epic, Fujifilm, GE Healthcare, Infinitt, Lumedx, McKesson and Wolters Kluwer. But who leads in mindshare? The report examines which vendor has the greatest customer loyalty and provides the strongest reporting and workflow.

As part of the study, 392 providers shared their opinions and experiences with KLAS. Authored by Monique Rasband, the report is entitled "CVIS 2014: The Reality of Consolidation." 

The report is available to healthcare providers and vendors. Providers receive a discount off the standard retail price or can receive a complimentary summary report in exchange for a survey about one of their current suppliers.
