In healthcare IT circles, the HIMSS Conference ranks amongst the most important events of the year. But viewed through the VISUS lens, it was a far smaller event on the fringes of the main conference that outshone everything else: the presentation of the Best in KLAS Award PACS Europe to JiveX.
This prestigious prize award was presented in the Hilton Orlando hotel on February 11, 2019, at the same time as the opening of the HIMSS Conference in Orlando (February 11-15). Even though on the evening itself it was no longer a surprise that we would be receiving the award, there was still a lot of excitement and joy once it happened. For our team from Bochum, both attending the KLAS Award and winning the Best in KLAS Award were firsts. We pitted ourselves against the competition under the tough KLAS criteria and the critical assessment of users for the first time last year, putting JiveX up as an entry in the PACS Europe category.
On January 31, 2019, the results were made official: the users surveyed anonymously awarded the JiveX Enterprise PACS top marks in all categories - corporate culture, loyalty, product quality, product use, customer commitment and corporate values. Ultimately, VISUS with JiveX landed first place from a standing start, leaving five competitors in its wake.
The perfect partner for radiology
"This award is a particular honor for us, because the European PACS market is especially fiercely contested and our competitors are not resting on their laurels in terms of their product development. This KLAS Award is proof that our focus on practical and process-oriented solutions is hitting the mark with radiologists. And for our users and potential customers around the world, the award is a key signal that with VISUS they have an excellent and forward-looking partner at their side," explained Willi Lohrke, Sales Director International at VISUS, who accepted the prize in Orlando on behalf of the company.
