KLAS Recognizes HealthPort as Vendor Most Considered When Choosing RAC Management Technology

Recent KLAS Study Highlights HealthPort as a Leading RAC Management Technology Vendor

ALPHARETTA, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- HealthPort, an industry leader in health information and audit management technology, today announced its ranking as the most considered RAC management technology vendor in the November 2010 KLAS (www.KLASresearch.com ) independent study of Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) audit management perception among healthcare facilities.

An important result in the KLAS report, RAC Management Vendors: Early Leaders Among Rising Awareness, identified prior relationships as the most influential consideration in purchasing decisions for a RAC management solution. Considered 23% of the time by the 98 providers polled, HealthPort has utilized its existing relationship as the release of information services and technology provider for over 1600 hospitals to achieve a high market penetration in the RAC management space.

“It is no surprise to us that as the largest release of information services and technology provider we have been identified as the most considered company for a RAC management solution according to the KLAS report: RAC Management Vendors: Early Leaders Among Rising Awareness,” said Lori Brocato, Audit Management Product Manager, HealthPort. “As more and more providers understand the direct link between release of information services and audit management, it positions us as a perfect choice to satisfy both functions for the healthcare facilities that we serve.”

Noted in the independent study of RAC audit management perception among healthcare facilities, outside of the existence of a prior relationship with the vendor, providers also indicated three factors that weighed in their RAC solution decision; cost, analytics, and the ability to support other audits. HealthPort has expanded its product line to include these components with the introduction of its comprehensive audit management solution, HealthPort AudaPro which includes HealthPort RACPro as a component. “As audits like MIC, MAC, ZPIC and others follow RAC, providers are looking for a solution that will manage all audits,” says Brocato. “HealthPort anticipated this need and has addressed it with the June 2010 launch of HealthPort AudaPro providing an innovative audit management solution for our customers and prospects.”
