Healthcare Informatics, a New York City-based magazine providing leadership and strategy for healthcare IT leaders, is proud to officially announce the 2012 version of its unique industry offering: the Healthcare Informatics 100, a compilation of the top health IT companies based on HIT revenues from the most recent fiscal year. For this year’s list, McKesson Technology Solutions (Alpharetta, Ga.) was the top ranked company, marking the fifth year in a row that the diversified healthcare IT software solutions vendor has sat atop the list.
The HCI 100 is a complete look at the top 100 revenue-earning companies in the industry, eligible to any company that can identify HIT-based revenues. On the list, along with the company’s revenue, is a look at detailed information including a brief description of each company’s activity, its past revenues, recent acquisition information, and more.
Ranking second was Round Rock, Texas-based Dell, a provider of IT outsourcing, revenue cycle services, and data centers to the healthcare industry. Rounding out the top five, untouched from last year’s list, are CareFusion (San Diego, Calif.), Philips Healthcare (Andover, Mass.), and Cerner Corp. (Kansas City, Mo.).
To formulate this list, the HCI editorial staff worked with two market research and analysis companies: Porter Research (Atlanta) and ST Advisors LLC (San Francisco). The sales figures were submitted, compiled, and reviewed by Porter Research, who ensured deserving companies were included in the list. For those who did not submit their healthcare IT revenues, both Porter and ST Advisors estimated data based on patterns of previous years’ revenue, along with information derived from official financial filings, press releases, and unrelated healthcare industry consultants.
Thanks and enjoy.
