Care Providers Again Rank CCSI #1 Among Perinatal
Information System Vendors in the Market.
Elgin, IL, October 15, 2010 – Clinical Computer Systems, Inc. (CCSI) today announced that its OBIX® Perinatal Data System was ranked number one for labor and delivery systems in the September 2010 KLAS® report*. This independent report compiled from feedback of healthcare executives and professionals covers healthcare information technology and professional services. It is the fourth, consecutive KLAS report in which the OBIX system has been ranked number one for labor and delivery systems. Previous KLAS research reports that ranked the OBIX system number one were published in December 2009**, December 2008*** and March 2008****. The OBIX system received the highest overall score among systems that provide central surveillance, alerts, documentation and archiving capabilities for the labor and delivery environment. Reasons cited in the most recent report for the number one ranking included: “Highest overall customer satisfaction. Success based on meeting expectations, ease of use, and strong support. Only vendor in the study to receive higher than 8.0 on quality of support and proactive service. Focus on integration with Epic has been successful.” The OBIX Perinatal Data System is a comprehensive system for central, bedside and remote electronic fetal monitoring that includes archiving, point-of-care charting, single-click management reports and Internet-based physician access. Its design facilitates scalability and expansion so it can be site-tailored to meet any department’s specific workflow needs. Decision support tools help clinicians improve their practices and promote patient safety in electronic fetal monitoring. In addition, the system is specifically designed for interfacing to other hospital departmental systems, hospital-wide charting solutions and electronic medical record repositories.
“Everyone at CCSI is extremely gratified to be recognized by care providers for the fourth consecutive time in the KLAS reports,” said Kim Sell, President of CCSI. “While we are proud of our market-leading software, we recognize that the success of our customers-and the growth of our company-has been based as much or more on user satisfaction with our superior education, service and support. We strive to earn and retain the trust of our customers by supporting them before, during and long after system installations.” Randy Paul, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, added, “We would like to believe that this recognition reflects our efforts to put our customers first; at the same time, we know we need to do more for them. This latest KLAS report identifies interoperability as an opportunity for all vendors. We are pleased with the success that we have had interfacing to Epic and other systems and want to work with all industry-leading, house-wide HIS companies to expand the connectivity of our system and improve workflow efficiencies for our customers.”
