Secaucus, NJ, Jan. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quest Diagnostics (NYSE: DGX), the world’s leading provider of diagnostic information services, announced today that its ChartMaxx® enterprise content management solution ranked number one among Document Management and Imaging (DMI) software products in the 2018 Best in KLAS: Software & Services report, an independent ranking based on customer feedback from healthcare information technology providers. ChartMaxx secured the highest overall score and product quality rating in the DMI category.
2018 marks the tenth time ChartMaxx has ranked number one in the Best in KLAS report, making it the most frequently awarded product in the DMI category. DMI software is used to scan, create, archive, streamline workflows and validate electronically stored content for hospitals and health organizations to complement their EHR, enterprise resource planning (ERP), and financial systems where additional enterprise data needs to be captured and accessed for better patient care.

These vendors earned the title of Category Leader in the 2018 Best in KLAS: Software & Services report—a top honor for helping healthcare professionals deliver better patient care.
“Category Leader is more than a ranking. It is a recognition of vendors committed to delivering superior solutions,” said Adam Gale, president of KLAS. “It gives voice to thousands of providers who are demanding better performance, usability and interoperability in healthcare technology.”
