What is KLAS?

What is KLAS?

KLAS is a healthcare research company based in Utah. The name is an acronym of the company's four founding members, Kent Gale, Leonard Black, Adam Gale, and Scott Holbrook, all veterans of the healthcare IT (HIT) field.

KLAS evaluates technologies from a wide range of HIT providers. According to their website, the mission of KLAS is to "improve the world's healthcare through insights, collaboration, and transparency." Their benchmarks and reports are highly regarded in the industry.

A Brief History of KLAS

After registering the company as an LLC in Arizona in 1996, the four founders of KLAS delivered their first industry report in 1997. The first KLAS Survey was introduced that year at HIMSS San Diego. The company's insight into the rapidly evolving HIT industry became something of a gold standard. By 2001, KLAS had $1 million in revenue for the first time.

Today, the annual KLAS Research Report is a respected industry report detailing the state of healthcare technology and related services. The "Best in KLAS" designation is a widely accepted sign that a HIT company's products and services are of the highest quality.

About KLAS Reports

Over the years, KLAS has conducted research and published reports on technology in nearly every healthcare field. The reports section on their website features dozens of categories and market segments to choose from. As electronic health record (EHR) systems and other technologies have become healthcare standards, KLAS reports have informed many healthcare decision-makers.
