Having captured the Category Leader designation in two previous Best in KLAS reports, the clinical surveillance and decision support platform was awarded top honors for: general satisfaction; functionality and upgrades; and sales and contracting.
Utilizing algorithms to prevent bias, KLAS partners with healthcare providers to provide insight into the quality of healthcare technology solutions. Based on the aggregated feedback of thousands of healthcare professionals and clinicians, the Best in KLAS annual report recognizes the best-performing healthcare IT vendors in more than 100 market segments to ultimately improve vendor performance and guide healthcare provider buying decisions.
Sentri7 drives continuous improvement by leveraging EMR investments to empower clinicians to operate smarter and more efficiently. An interoperable SaaS platform, the HIPAA-compliant clinical decision support surveillance solution provides real-time aggregation of patient data to automate tracking, identification and reporting of patient issues to enable proactive governance and management of critical clinical initiatives such as Antimicrobial Stewardship. Sentri7 clinical content is created and maintained by clinicians and put through a rigorous editorial process that synthesizes the most up-to-date medical information into accurate, trusted, evidence-based alerts and care recommendations designed to achieve important clinical outcomes.
“Hospitals and healthcare organizations are increasingly turning towards clinical surveillance solutions to comply with federal and state regulations, as well as transition to value-based care,” said David A. Del Toro, President & CEO of Clinical Software Solutions at Wolters Kluwer. “It is a great honor to have Sentri7 once again recognized by our customers through KLAS as an impactful intervention that aids in providing optimal care.”
