Visage Imaging’s Visage 7 ranks first place in KLAS 2023
Visage Imaging, Inc., a subsidiary of Pro Medicus Ltd., has announced the Visage® 7 Enterprise Imaging Platform has been ranked the number 1 Universal Viewer (Imaging) in the 2023 Best in KLAS ® Software & Services Report by KLAS Research. Visage 7 supports the simplicity of a One Viewer™ philosophy that enables diagnostic, clinical, specialty, research, and mobile imaging workflows from a singular platform, delivered entirely from the cloud or on premise.
Visage 7 achieved a first place ranking in the Universal Viewer (Imaging) segment with a score of 90.2. KLAS defines the Universal Viewer (Imaging) segment as “Solutions that can be used for referential and/or diagnostic viewing; that support multiple media types, and that do so across multiple service lines.” To qualify as a Universal Viewer (Imaging) solution, provider organizations must verify to KLAS they use the solution for at least two different clinical service lines. Under this definition, Visage 7 actually provides more functionality than PACS alone.
One-hundred percent of Visage customers use Visage 7 for ultrafast diagnostic interpretation at enterprise scale, which enables the elimination of legacy PACS. This approach to PACS replacement, led by Visage, is commonly known as “modular” or Deconstructed PACS™. However, these Visage 7 solutions are not evaluated today in the KLAS PACS segment and the KLAS PACS Report, based on the KLAS definition of PACS. Increasingly, Visage customers are purchasing the Visage 7 “full stack” offering of Visage 7 Viewer, Visage 7 Workflow and Visage 7 Open Archive, and this combination of native solutions does qualify for evaluation in the KLAS PACS segment.
According to KLAS, “The Best in KLAS report recognizes software and services companies who excel in helping healthcare professionals improve patient care. All rankings are a direct result of the feedback of thousands of providers over the last year. A Best in KLAS award signifies to the healthcare IT industry the commitment and partnership that the top vendors should provide.”
“Visage customers have successfully replaced greater than 100 legacy PACS and even more imaging viewers with the Visage 7 platform,” said Brad Levin, General Manager, North America and Global Head of Marketing. Mr. Levin continued, “Moreover, for more than two years, one-hundred percent of new Visage 7 customers have implemented Visage 7 in the cloud. Visage is extremely proud and honored that our customer’s feedback about Visage 7 has been heard and that we have been recognized as the market leader by KLAS. This award celebrates their collective efforts and the exceptional Visage team transforming imaging.”
