KLAS Gives Impact Advisors Highest Combined Scores for Epic-Related Expertise

July 3, 2012

CHICAGO, July 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Impact Advisors, LLC, a healthcare information technology consulting firm, received the highest combined scores among 46 organizations from KLAS in the recent report, “Navigating the Sea of Epic Consulting Firms.”

While demand is at an all-time high for Epic consultants, the size and complexity of the Epic installs combined with the pressing timelines have created a strong need for additional firepower, according to KLAS. Epic users are thirsting for strategy, technical and implementation assistance, but not all firms are prepared to provide the comprehensive expertise to meet those needs.

In the recent study, KLAS (an independently owned and operated healthcare research organization) rated 46 firms providing Epic-related advisory, implementation and staffing support. In the report, Impact Advisors received the highest combined scores for the categories of “Money’s Worth,” “Consultant Quality” and “Service Delivery Met Timelines.”

KLAS reports that firms who provide consultants with the right knowledge and expertise in the right numbers and who foster the right relationship with their clients set themselves apart in this growing and increasingly competitive market.

“We are once again excited and honored to be recognized by the industry for the quality of our services and Associates. These rankings are a direct reflection of the caliber and skills of our Associates and our ability to partner with some of the best healthcare providers in the industry,” said Peter Smith, Impact Advisors Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder.

Impact Advisors has consistently received other industry recognitions such as Best in KLAS awards, a Best Places to Work in Healthcare by Modern Healthcare Magazine, and a Best Firm to Work for by Consulting Magazine.
