For the sixth straight year, Epic has secured the top spot for Overall Software Suite in the Best in KLAS: Software & Services report, which is compiled based on feedback from healthcare providers.

Epic was also named the best Overall Physician Practice Vendor and received Best in KLAS awards in seven segments. The Verona, Wisconsin-based behemoth also won for best acute care EMR, ambulatory EMR, and patient portal.

Epic also notched a win in the health information exchange category, for its Care Everywhere technology.

Impact Advisors, meanwhile, was tops in the Overall IT Services Firm category for the fourth year running, also winning Best in KLAS for IT Advisory Services.

Also, with a 20 percent score increase from last year, Medicity won recognition as the overall most improved vendor for its population health technology.

Among vendors who received multiple Best in KLAS awards, Merge earned three for cardiology, radiology and VNA/image archive; athenahealth, CareTech Solutions, CureMD and Galen Healthcare each earned two awards.

"As healthcare continues to evolve, it is imperative that we seek innovation and constantly address the needs of a shifting market," said Adam Gale, CEO and president of KLAS in a statement. 

"KLAS is honored to work with talented healthcare providers who willingly share their experiences with us and make the Best in KLAS report possible," he said. "We also commend all the vendors who strive to improve their products and services in order to provide the best possible healthcare."
