Evident's Thrive Earns 11th Consecutive #1 Client Rating in Small Hospital EHR User Satisfaction, Black Book Survey

Evident, a member of the CPSI family of companies, is recognized again as the top-rated inpatient EHR vendor for hospitals under 100 beds. Evident's Centriq EHR also achieved the number two ranking over the field of 12 major electronic health record vendors.

 Black Book Research announced the top comprehensive information technologies for electronic health records as collected from 640 small, rural and critical access hospitals under 100 beds in the annual crowdsourced poll of true user experience.

Black Book measures customer satisfaction across 18 EHR-centric, key performance indicators: strategic alignment of client goals; innovation and optimization; training; client relationships and cultural fit; trust, accountability, transparency, and ethics; breadth of offerings, client types, delivery excellence; deployment and implementation; customization; integration, connectivity and interfaces; scalability, client adaptability, flexible pricing; compensation and employee performance; reliability; brand image and marketing communications; marginal value adds and modules; financial and managerial viability; cybersecurity; support and customer care; and best-of-breed technology and process improvement.  

Thrive rated above all competitors in small hospital client satisfaction in seven of the 18 KPIs, and Centriq followed with three categories of top EHR user performance.

Black Book decrees that every department of the survey-participating hospitals have the opportunity to contribute individual input into the score to most accurately reflect how clinicians, financial staff, nurses, physicians, ancillary units, and operations evaluate the usability and functionalities of their EHR, including the but not limited to the opinions of IT staff and management on their implemented healthcare technologies and electronic health records systems.
