IPSWICH, Mass. — February 2, 2021 — DynaMed®, an EBSCO Clinical Decisions resource, was named the top performing point-of-care clinical reference tool in the 2021 Best in KLAS: Software and Services report. KLAS, a research firm that specializes in monitoring and reporting the performance of healthcare vendors, found that DynaMed was ranked the number one clinical decision support point-of-care reference tool among healthcare organizations.
Each year, KLAS publishes the Best in KLAS report, ranking vendors across the many technology and services markets within healthcare. DynaMed, EBSCO Information Services’ flagship evidence-based, clinical decision information resource, is designed to reduce time to answer for clinicians and provide the most useful information to healthcare professionals at the point of care.
KLAS President Adam Gale says, “Each year, thousands of healthcare professionals across the globe take the time to share their voice with KLAS. They know that sharing their perspective helps vendors to improve and helps their peers make better decisions. These conversations are a constant reminder to me of how necessary accurate, honest, and impartial reporting is in the healthcare industry. The Best in KLAS report and the awards it contains set the standard of excellence for software and services firms. Vendors who win the title of “Best in KLAS” should celebrate and remember that providers now accept only the best from their products and services. The Best in KLAS award serves as a signal to provider and payer organizations that they should expect excellence from the winning vendors.”
DynaMed Editor in Chief Peter Oettgen, MD, FACC, FAHA, FACP, says the KLAS report reinforces EBSCO Clinical Decisions’ commitment to supporting clinicians at the point of care while improving patient outcomes. “Today’s clinicians are faced with the immeasurable challenge of keeping pace with the most recent and accurate clinical information while meeting the needs of their patients. With DynaMed and DynaMed® and Micromedex® with Watson™, we aim to meet the needs of our users and are encouraged to hear that healthcare professionals consider DynaMed to be an integral part in supporting the care of their patients.”
