With the release of the 2020 Best in KLAS: Software & Services report, S&P Consultants marks the fifth year of being ranked by the prestigious peer-reviewed healthcare technology organization.
To assemble the report, KLAS talks to thousands of organizations to gather insight on their implementation experiences with a variety of vendors and how well those vendors live up to expectations.
“The growing recognition—year over year—by this organization is really an important measure to our team because it reflects the opinions of verified clients in the industry,” said Andy Splitz, Cofounder and CEO of S&P Consultants. “In order for them to express an opinion in the KLAS survey, they must demonstrate actual engagements and metrics. So, for many discerning clients, the KLAS rankings rightfully wield a lot of influence. Each year that we move up in the rankings gives a real boost to our team, our clients, and the people watching our growth.”
This is the first year, S&P Consultants appeared in the top Overall IT Services Firm Rankings. The company tied for third place, with a score of 93.7 out of 100.
In other areas of the report:
• S&P Consultants received a score of 95.9—the highest of companies rated under “HIT Implementation Leadership (Large)”—but was unable to be officially ranked because of their focus on “a subset of the market” (i.e. Cerner solutions.)
• S&P Consultants was ranked 3rd in HIT Staffing, with a score of 95.1
• S&P Consultants achieved a Top-Ten ranking in HIT Implementation Leadership (Small) and broke into the Top Ten in Technical Services in 2020
As part of KLAS’s past research, candid and anonymized feedback from confirmed S&P clients was collected. Many of the comments provided by S&P clients spoke to how their expertise helped all parties in the implementation achieve their common goal. Here are some highlights from this year’s Best in KLAS 2020 report1:
S&P Consultants was really good to work with. They were very knowledgeable about our EMR. I was highly impressed with S&P Consultants’ knowledge base. The vendors we worked with had unconventional ways of getting things done. We were still able to work together, and I was extremely happy with the outcome.
Manager, Project Results, Nov 2019
We were on a very specific time frame to complete the work on one of our projects. S&P Consultants told us that they would be able to complete what we needed, and they dedicated everything they had to getting the project done within the time frame we provided them. They were phenomenal.
Director, Project Results, Aug 2019
S&P Consultants had a team that built our interfaces, and those team members were instrumental to our successful go-live. They were on-site for at-the-elbow support when we went live, and they provided additional remote support for issues months after the go-live.
Director, People and Knowledge, Aug 2019
S&P Consultants has been the best service vendor that we have used. They go out of their way to help us and to provide us with knowledge and leadership. S&P Consultants communicates well and does an excellent job. Their motto is to teach as we go. That is very hands on and effective.
CIO, Tools and Methodology, Nov 2019
We have a good partnership with the vendor. The vendor’s executives are very involved in the projects and updates.
