Company Receives Top-Rated Scores in Five Areas Based on Client Feedback

ST. LOUIS — FEBRUARY 20, 2017 — Lumeris, a pioneer in population health management solutions headquartered in St. Louis, received the designation of 2017 Best in KLAS for value-based care managed services at last night’s KLAS awards ceremony in Orlando, Florida. KLAS began rating value-based care managed services firms last year, and for the second consecutive year, Lumeris received the Best in KLAS designation.

In the “2017 Best in KLAS: Software & Services” report the value-based care managed services award category focused on: sales and contracting; implementation and training; and service and support.

“We are honored to be recognized with the 2017 Best in KLAS designation for value-based care managed services,” said Art Glasgow, president and chief operating officer of Lumeris. “Even though this award comes from KLAS, it’s our work with our clients and their positive testimonials that are the true reward. We are changing healthcare—together—and because of our excellent operations, people and technology, we are able to positively impact our clients’ outcomes. This is a demonstration that when they win, we win.”

In a separate KLAS report, “Value-Based Care Managed Services: Technology-Enabled Services to Support Your Transformation to Value,” released in December, Lumeris was the top-rated full-services value-based care managed services firm based on feedback received from Lumeris’ clients. That report evaluated 11 firms based on interviews with healthcare providers. Lumeris was assessed in the full-service category with five other firms. The report examined the impact and performance of firms that provide value-based care managed services for their support and solutions to assist in the transformation to value-based care.

In addition to being named the top-performing full-service firm, 100 percent of Lumeris’ clients reported they would purchase services again and state that their future plans include partnering with Lumeris in either the same capacity they currently are or expanding their partnership.
