Varian's Oncology IT Solution Ranked No. 1 by KLAS

July 9, 2008 - Varian Medical Systems was ranked No. 1 in an independent study released by KLAS for Varian’s ARIA software, which received the top scores for ease of use, quality of releases and updates, and compatibility with third party products.

According to the June 2008 Oncology report, Varian Medical Systems is "considered by many providers to have the most developed and comprehensive oncology solution." The report further states that "many Varian customers feel that the ARIA suite is the most robust solution for medical and radiation oncology available on the market today."

Although KLAS interviewed eleven potential vendors, the study focuses on Varian, IMPAC, and IntrinsiQ, the only three with a sufficient number of active installations to qualify.

Varian was the only vendor to score above the group average in all four of the report's major categories: product/technology indicators, service indicators, success indicators, and business indicators. Varian scored above competitors in 23 of the forty indicators that the study measured, while IntrinsiQ scored highest in 13, and IMPAC in six. Some of the indicators for which Varian achieved top scores included: ease of use; quality of releases or updates; technology that is easy to implement and support; works with third-party producers; quality of implementation, training, and documentation; quality and timeliness of interfaces; helps your job performance, and overall satisfaction with vendor/product.
