For Immediate Release
June 3, 2010
Pensacola, FL – Pennsylvania-based SDI recently announced the release of the 2010 SDI IHN (Integrated Health Networks) Top 100 in ModernHealthcare magazine. SDI’s report, regarded as the nation’s premier rating system, evaluates IHNs on their performance and degree of integration. Of the first 50 awardees on the list, one-fifth is current KontactIntelligence (Ki) clients.
Baystate Health, number 18 on the list, has been a Ki user for five years. “I'm grateful that Baystate has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to technology,” remarked John Larson, Director of Physician Recruitment at Baystate. “Since Massachusetts has taken the lead in healthcare reform, we already cover all of our residents in the state. This requires us to recruit enough primary care physicians to serve our population. We recruit 50-60 doctors each year. Ki helps us keep up with the demand.”
“We are very proud of our Ki users’ performance in this arena,” said Niels K. Andersen, President and CEO of KAMedData, parent company for KontactIntelligence. “We are also proud of the fact that this elite group has chosen our product to help them reach their physician recruitment and retention goals. This ranking clearly shows that technology and its value to the bottom line and quality reaches far beyond direct patient care."
The 2010 list identifies the top 100 IHNs that meet critical success factors. The ratings are based on SDI’s IHN Rating System, which evaluates each network’s ability to operate as a unified organization in eight categories: integration, integrated technology, contractual capabilities, outpatient utilization, financial stability, services and access, hospital utilization, and physicians.
