KLAS Ranks TeleTracking Bed Management Suite No. 1



    
    "Category Leader" in year-end KLAS survey
    

    PITTSBURGH, Jan. 10 /CNW/ -- TeleTracking's BedManagement Suite(TM) was
rated "Best in Category" by major healthcare providers who use automated
patient flow software, according to leading healthcare market researcher KLAS.
    The ranking was listed in the KLAS 2007 Top 20 Year-End Report Card,
which presents evaluations by thousands of healthcare professionals of health
information technology vendors in several categories.
    The recognition follows a mid-year KLAS report released in August 2007,
in which ninety-eight percent of current users said they would recommend
TeleTracking to a friend or peer. In that report, users again ranked
TeleTracking best in the bed management category, as well as best at:

    
    -- Meeting deadlines
    -- On-time implementation
    -- Fair and complete contracts
    -- Meeting expectations
    -- Performance satisfaction
    -- Proactive service
    -- Highest quality custom work
    -- Training
    -- Timely release of enhancements
    -- Budget adherence
    -- Staff and support
    
    In its category report, the market research firm said the install base
for bed management systems is dominated by "best of breed" bed management
vendors. According to the report, TeleTracking "clearly has the most sites
live," with over 700 clients and 1400 plus installations.  The firm noted that
competitors Premise and Hill-Rom NaviCare have far fewer installs and that
vendors ACS/New Age and Awarix can point to less than six standalone live
organizations, while StatCom and Radianse have less than two live
organizations each.
    In general, most providers are clearly pleased with bed management
solutions, the KLAS report noted. In fact, comments of providers were 100
percent positive regarding "future outlook," indicating that providers are
pleased with what they have and are excited about the future.
    Provider organizations use this report and other KLAS ratings to help
initiate and validate software, professional services, and medical equipment
purchasing decisions. KLAS offers participating providers free online access
