iKnowMed Electronic Health Record System (EHR), the highest-ranked web-based oncology-specific EHR by Black Book Rankings and a product of McKesson Specialty Health Solutions for Oncology, was included in the new KLAS report Oncology IS 2011: Integrating the Island. In the report, iKnowMed scored an 85 overall performance score, more than three points higher than it scored in The Oncology IT Balancing Act: Integration vs. Functionality published by KLAS in 2010; due to a small open market customer sample size, the EHR’s KLAS rank could not be included in the report.
“Although not fully ranked, iKnowMed scored an impressive 85 overall on the KLAS scale,” said Monique Rasband, author of the KLAS report. “Since 2010, this product has really made its mark on the industry by more than doubling the number of practices in the open market. Plus, providers are all abuzz about what iKnowMed may be able to offer in the future, especially because of the recent initial rollout of this product’s tight integration with Lynx Mobile, McKesson Specialty Health’s leading drug inventory management system. This could make newcomer McKesson Specialty Health (published under US Oncology in the 2011 KLAS report) a formidable competitor in the oncology IT space.”
Compared to the 2010 KLAS report, iKnowMed scores either increased or maintained status quo across 19 of the 25 categories. Results for the Sales & Contracting, Ease of Use and Implementation & Training, among other categories, increased across the board when compared to 2010 results. [Read more…]
