S&P Consultants Ranked in the Best in KLAS: Software and Services Report for Fourth Consecutive Year

Sponsored by Businesswire

With the release of the 2019 Best in KLAS: Software Services report,
S&P Consultants marks the fourth 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.

“Of the many accolades available to businesses in our sector, this one
is particularly meaningful,” said Andy Splitz, Cofounder and CEO of S&P
Consultants. “That’s because it represents the opinions of our
clients—and their peer set. These are people who have had direct
experience in implementing HIT solutions and working with some of the
best consultants and software vendors in the industry. For them to
single us out this way again this year is not only very gratifying, but
it’s also highly motivating to our hard-working team.”

This year, S&P was rated in the HIT Implementation Support and Staffing
category with a score of 92.9 out of 100.

As part of KLAS’s research, candid and anonymized feedback from
confirmed S&P clients collected. Many of the comments provided by S&P
clients spoke to how our expertise helped all parties in the
implementation achieve their common goal. Here are some highlights1:

  • S&P Consultants helped steer us away from danger and… set us up
    much better for future success

    Director, Project Results –
    Aug 2018.
  • S&P Consultants helped us figure out things that our EHR vendor said
    were impossible. And we and S&P Consultants also figured out other
    things together. That was quite an accomplishment. S&P Consultants
    really did partner with us, and they helped us through the entire
    Manager, Project Results – Dec 2018
  • I would contract with S&P Consultants again in a heartbeat. We liked
    that they were willing to tell us what we needed to hear. Some of the
    other consultants we have worked with would sometimes tell us what we
    wanted to hear. But S&P Consultants was a little different. I could
    tell right out of the gate that they were up front and that they did
    things in a great manner. They were great about telling us how things
    were. Also, the people that S&P Consultants gave us were tremendous.
    They were head and shoulders above the folks that we were getting from
    another vendor. S&P Consultants has a good methodology. They use a
    methodology and structure for implementations that are based on some
    of their previous engagements. For us, the methodology was a huge
    difference from what we had with another vendor. When we brought S&P
    Consultants into our implementation, there was a night-and-day
    difference. In general, S&P Consultants’ people, framework, and
    ability to have candid conversations were the things that set them

    Director, Project – Jan 2019

  • S&P Consultants didn’t come with an attitude of telling us what they
    have done and what we have to do. They actually learned our operation
    as much as possible. They were able to integrate what they knew with
    our workflow. I was really impressed.

    Manager, Tools and
    Methodology – Dec 2018

  • I was struck by the fact that S&P Consultants was able to initiate
    activity and work without having to be told. They weren’t sitting
    around waiting for directions. They integrated with our staff and
    essentially became part of our staff. And they were the subject matter
    experts for us. S&P Consultants worked very closely with our teams,
    and they always had new things that needed to get done. They would
    initiate things.
    Manager, People and Knowledge – Dec 2018
  • The biggest thing that sets S&P Consultants apart is the fact that
    their people are extremely comfortable working in a client’s
    environment. Some consultants just talk around a table in the
    conference room. But S&P Consultants’ people don’t just stay at the
    table. They are out in the trenches working with the team. They go
    where they are needed. That really stands out. They show us how to do
    the things they talk about. The consultants made our folks
    comfortable. Our staff members look forward to the consultants coming
    on-site. People come up to me and ask whether the consultants are
    coming in.
    Manager, People and Knowledge – Dec 2018
