Netsmart Rated the No. 1 Technology Solutions Vendor in Subacute Care, Long Term Care and Home Health

Black Book survey ranks Netsmart as the top-rated HIT platform for third consecutive year across continuum of Post-Acute settings

Today, Black Book Research announced that Netsmart has swept the post-acute health technology platform ratings for highest customer satisfaction in the annual client experience polling of 20 top competitors. Black Book's study of post-acute providers confirmed Netsmart has retained the top performance honor for the third year in a row, 2,068 long term care providers and 902 home health providers participated in the crowdsourced survey from May to October this year.

Black Book also examined post-acute provider EHR adoption and usage in the U.S. and found that less than 15 percent of respondents consider their organization equipped to electronically engage in care coordination, patient record exchange, or population health initiatives with referral hospitals and physicians currently. The growth potential for post-acute care technology is estimated by Black Book to exceed double digits as pending value-based payment reforms require providers to exchange data electronically and coordinate care effectively.
