In the Best in KLAS report for 2017, Orchard Software was again ranked the #1 LIS vendor in the Community Hospital/Ambulatory Laboratory category. In 2014, KLAS combined the Community (200 beds and smaller) and Ambulatory categories into one called Community Hospital/Ambulatory.
For the 2017 award, Orchard received an overall score of 90.4 out of 100 in the Community Hospital/Ambulatory category.
Again, as last year, no other LIS vendor listed in the Community Hospital/Ambulatory category received an overall score above Orchard. Orchard’s next highest LIS competitor had an overall score of 85.9 in the Community Hospital/Ambulatory category.
In the large Laboratory category (non-ambulatory facilities and hospitals over 200 beds), Harvest LIS was rated an impressive 93.2. Orchard’s score of 93.2 was higher than all other LIS vendors in this category; however, the number of surveys completed on Orchard by KLAS for 2017 was not enough to meet the minimum KLAS “Konfidence” level.
Overall, KLAS has rated over 750 products from over 200 vendors and has been compiling data on laboratory products, including software, since 1996.
