Coastal Healthcare Consulting Scores Higher Than Market Average In KLAS' 2009 Mid-Term Performance Review

Coastal Healthcare Consulting, Inc. (Coastal), a premier provider of healthcare information technology (HIT) consulting services, has received overall scores above the market average for its Clinical Implementation Principal, Clinical Implementation Supportive and Staff Augmentation services in the Mid-Term Performance Review: Software & Professional Services recently issued by KLAS Enterprises (KLAS).

Clinical Implementation Principal is an engagement in which a professional services firm (PSF) assists a provider by playing a major role in implementing applications by providing guidance, expertise, tools, methodology and resources. Clinical Implementation Supportive involves engagements in which a PSF assists a provider by playing a supportive role in implementing applications by providing expertise and resources. Staff Augmentation is an engagement in which a PSF provides resources that have specific skill sets that have limited or no deliverables and are working under the guidance of the client, following the client's methodology and using their tools.

The Mid-Term Performance Review: Software & Professional Services is a semi-annual report summarizing HIT software and professional services performance data as reported by physicians' offices, clinics, IDNs, inpatient facilities and applicable healthcare agencies. The performance data is collected from direct evaluations from healthcare providers and from confidential interviews with IT executives and department directors in order to gather valuable qualitative insight regarding projects. The professional services ratings reflect data collected over the past 18 months.

"We are extremely proud once again to be included in the KLAS Mid-Term Performance Review with strong overall scores, said Amy Collins, President of Coastal Healthcare Consulting. "Our expertise in all facets of project implementation, as well as our focus on delivering results for our clients, is reflected in the ratings data which our clients share with KLAS."
