For the 10th year in a row, Epic earned the top score for Overall Software Suite in the annual Best in KLAS 2020 Software & Services report.

Additionally, the Verona, Wisconsin-based health IT giant was named the top Overall Physician Practice Vendor, won Best in KLAS awards in eight segments, and won Category Leader awards in four segments.

Pivot Point Consulting was named the top Overall IT Services Firm thanks to consistently strong performance across several market segments, including HIT implementation, advisory services, HIT staffing, and technical services.

Meanwhile, Cerner was cited for the Most Improved Physician Practice Product, with satisfaction increasing in all areas measured by KLAS, and Accenture won a Best in KLAS award for Healthcare Management Consulting and also took top honors as the overall best healthcare  management consulting firm.

The Best in KLAS awards list is based on information obtained from the approximately 2,500 interviews KLAS conducts with providers and payers each month.

Annually, these interviews represent the opinions of healthcare professionals and clinicians from more than 4,500 hospitals and 2,500 clinics, and account for 1,200 products and services from more than 450 vendors.
