KLAS Names DR Systems' Combined PACS "Best in KLAS" for 2011

December 19, 2011 — KLAS has recognized DR Systems and its combined Unity RIS-CVIS-PACS platform as the No. 1 ranked overall PACS vendor and product. The recognition came in KLAS’s 2011 Top 20: Best in KLAS Awards - Software & Services Report.

This is the second year in a row that DR Systems and the Unity Platform have received the honor. The system is a combined radiology information system (RIS)-cardiovascular information system (CVIS)-picture archiving and communications system (PACS).

DR Systems was rated ahead of all other PACS providers including GE Medical Systems, Carestream Health, McKesson, Siemens, Phillips, and Merge.

The award marks the fifth time since 2001 the company has been ranked the No. 1 overall PACS vendor by KLAS. The company received the same ranking in 2001, 2006, 2007, 2010, and now 2011. In addition, in 2007, KLAS ranked it the No. 1 overall healthcare information technology vendor.

Earlier this year, KLAS recognized DR Systems as the leading PACS vendor for large hospitals in its November 2011 KLAS Specialty Report: PACS 2011- A Victim of Its Own Success. As with the overall top ranking for PACS, this was the second year in a row that DR Systems was voted the leading PACS vendor for large hospitals.

Healthcare executives, managers, and clinicians representing several thousand hospitals and clinics contributed feedback for the KLAS report.

"We are especially pleased by this honor because KLAS compiles the views of thousands of PACS users and healthcare provider executives across the country - in other words, the people whose job it is to evaluate the best PACS in every category from functionality to reliability to cost," said Richard Porritt, DR Systems' president and CEO.

DR Systems' latest offerings include:  

  • Unity v|Series RIS. Both desktop and server virtualization-capable, the new RIS can be accessed from pre-existing PACS or RIS workstations as well as mobile/non-mobile computing devices. It employs industry-standard methods for single sign-on and exam synchronization. A multi-site practice can employ a single unified Unity v|Series RIS worklist to launch and drive one or more PACS; or it can launch the Unity v|Series RIS/Reporting system from a third-party PACS.
  • e|HR Meaningful Use for Medical Imaging. The company’s Meaningful Use EHR (electronic healthcare record) will help qualify radiologists for the maximum federal incentive payments available for meaningful use (MU) compliance. Certification of the system is anticipated for first quarter 2012 and general availability in second quarter 2012.
