Healthcare Informatics, a New York City-based publication providing leadership and strategy for healthcare IT leaders, is proud to officially release the 2013 version of its unique industry offering: the Healthcare Informatics 100. The Healthcare Informatics 100 is a compilation of the top health IT companies based on U.S. HIT revenues from the most recent fiscal year.
For the sixth straight year, diversified healthcare IT software solutions vendor, McKesson Technology Solutions (Alpharetta, Ga.) was the top ranked company. The Round Rock, Texas-based Dell, a provider of IT outsourcing, revenue cycle services, and data centers to the healthcare industry, ranked second.
Rounding out the top five was Cerner Corp. (Kansas City, Mo.), Philips Healthcare (Andover, Mass.), and CareFusion Corp. (San Diego, Calif.). While the order has shifted since last year, this is the third straight year that those five companies have sat atop this list.
"We believe that the Healthcare Informatics 100 offers a unique service to our industry, and is uniquely referenced by professionals throughout the field every year," says Mark Hagland, Editor-in-Chief of Healthcare Informatics.
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. 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.
In order to better serve our readership, Healthcare Informatics has redesigned the list’s format for the web and made it more interactive.
"Porter Research always enjoys participating in the HCI 100. We’ve had the pleasure of doing it for three consecutive years now, and it really helps paint a broad picture of the current state of healthcare IT. Not only does it benefit HCI’s readers, but it opens up the door for our team to have in-depth conversations with these companies about the new and traditional challenges they face. What competitors and competitive technologies are keeping executives up at night? How does this reflect their end users’ needs? It ends up providing really great insight,” says Porter Research President, Cynthia Porter.
Here’s a full look at this year’s Healthcare Informatics 100.
Thanks and enjoy.
