ST. LOUIS, Jan 31, 2014 (BUSINESS WIRE) — According to the annual “Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Services” report published on January 30, 2014 by KLAS Enterprises, LLC (KLAS), Unibased Systems Architecture, Inc. (Unibased) received the “Best in KLAS”1 Award for the market segment of Enterprise Scheduling for its ForSite2020® Resource Management System (RMS) for the 11th consecutive year, reflecting for the first time in KLAS history a vendor that has achieved over a decade of this award.
According to the report, “The ‘Best in KLAS’ categories represent software and services that currently provide the broadest operational and clinical impact to healthcare organizations. 24 companies are represented among 40 categories. This recognition signifies leadership in working with customers to resolve issues and match expectations to reality.” Unibased attained the highest overall score of 91.2 of all the companies listed in the Enterprise Scheduling solution category for the 11th year in a row, demonstrating unmatched product quality and client satisfaction. Unibased’s highest key performance area was service and support, with a score of 95.7. In its solution category, Unibased competed with: Cerner, Epic, McKesson, QuadraMed, and SCI Solutions.
Lawrence V. Covington, Unibased President and CEO, stated, “Unibased has been selected for this prestigious award many times over several consecutive years. I am very proud of our team, and will be retiring as Unibased’s CEO in February 2014 after 25 years. Unibased will continue to provide great attention to this area. The KLAS reviews including direct interaction with clients are substantial, and winning this recognition should not be taken for granted. The ForSite2020® Resource Management System (RMS) enterprise scheduling solution from Unibased is a large-scale, totally integrated system that includes access management, physician order tracking and reporting, care planning, consumer history, management of clinical resources, and consumer relations. Actual “scheduling” is an important element, but merely a feature of the total system. The software and service platform is extensive and designed in a fashion where each client has a unique environment. The Unibased platform supports the integration of the client’s other relevant solutions on a 7×24, 99% uptime basis. Since other third-party products are involved, Unibased is also the client’s primary source for assistance in technology and communications infrastructure support. This places the Unibased team in a position to be accurately responsive and quickly provide the services, modifications, and new modules, which ultimately leads to this award year after year. Unibased is grateful that its clients recognize this highly unique and reliable approach to overall engineering support.”
Unibased recently signed a definitive agreement to be acquired by Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. /quotes/zigman/101939/delayed/quotes/nls/strm STRM -1.01% , a leading provider of knowledge management solutions for healthcare providers, to expand its software offerings as well as bridge clinical and financial data earlier in the patient experience. The closing of the acquisition, expected to occur in early February 2014, is subject to the satisfaction of various customary closing conditions, including approval by Unibased’s stockholders.
Unibased’s ForSite2020® solutions enhance revenue cycle performance in the area of patient access by increasing productivity, improving workflow and operational efficiency, and streamlining resources for optimal coordination of care to better serve patients and physicians. Upfront screening and collection as well as pre-service resource coordination and utilization analytics are improved, significantly reducing cancellation and delays, and allowing for increased efficiency and more services per day for an ultimately improved revenue cycle and increased bottom line.
