KLAS Research provides the healthcare industry with impartial research on the software and services used by providers and payers worldwide. Best in KLAS rankings celebrate vendors who receive the highest provider scores for software, professional services, and medical equipment.

“Our API Healthcare Workforce Management team is proud to return to its long-standing position as the top performing time and attendance vendor according to KLAS; this award demonstrates that our renewed and unwavering commitment to our customers results in positive outcomes for our customers and their patients,” said Rick Pleczko, president and CEO of symplr. “KLAS performs a vital service to the healthcare industry providing accurate, honest and impartial data meant to ultimately serve the best interests of patients. We are honored to be recognized by KLAS.”

API Healthcare has long been recognized as a “Category Leader” with the Time and Attendance solution, which was top ranked for 17 of the past 19 years, and its Staffing and Scheduling solution, which also held the top spot for many years.

“Since joining the symplr family last year, the entire API Healthcare team has been focused on winning for our customers,” said Julie Walker, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Workforce and Credential Management at symplr. “Our ultimate goal is to help our customers achieve balanced clinical, financial, operational, compliance, and staff engagement outcomes by delivering the healthcare-specific technology and consultative services they need to provide high-quality patient care. To be back on top with a Best in KLAS award is both an honor and a source of inspiration for our team.”

Separate from the winners of Best in KLAS, Category Leaders also earn top honors for helping healthcare professionals provide better patient care. The Category Leader designation is reserved for vendor solutions that lead select market segments in which at least two products meet a minimum level of KLAS Konfidence.

“Providers and payers demand better performance, usability, and interoperability from their vendor partners every year. Best in KLAS winners set the standard of excellence in their market segment,” said Adam Gale, President of KLAS. “Earning a Best in KLAS award should both excite and humble the recipients. It serves as a signal to providers that they should expect only the best from the winning vendors.”
