The 23rd rendition of the Healthcare Informatics 100 has been released and once again, the Alpharetta, Ga.-based McKesson, tops the list with the highest revenue in the industry.
The list, from Healthcare Informatics, a New York City-based publication providing leadership and strategy for healthcare IT leaders, ranks the top 100 vendors with the highest revenues derived from healthcare IT products and services earned in the U.S. based on revenue information from the previous year. McKesson has been the top company on the list for seven straight years.
The top five saw a shakeup this year with Cerner, a Kansas City, Mo.-based provider of electronic medical record (EMR) software, professional services, medical device integration and remote hosting,, leapfrogging the Round Rock, Texas-based Dell, to take the second overall spot. Dell ranked third, with the Andover, Mass.-based Philips Healthcare and San Diego, Calif.-based CareFusion, taking the fourth and fifth spots. The biggest movers this year were GE Healthcare (23rd to 9th), MedAssets (31st to 17th), The Advisory Board Company (39th to 27th), Greenway Health (53rd to 32nd), and Experian Health/Passport (74th to 44th).
"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.
