LANCASTER, PA — Jan. 31, 2019 — Thornberry Ltd. has been named the 2019 "Best in KLAS" winner for Home Health, making it six in a row for the company's NDoc® homecare EMR.

Thornberry first set the record in 2017 with a fourth consecutive "Best in KLAS" award for the KLAS home care segment. Thornberry's homecare and hospice EMR received a top-ranked score of 93.1 once again in the 2019 Best in KLAS: Software & Services report, surpassing the average for homecare EMR vendors by more than 15 points. 

"We are both thrilled and humbled to be awarded Best in KLAS for the sixth year in a row," said Thornberry President and CEO Tom Peth. "We take great pride in providing innovative technology and top-level service to our customers, and this award is validation of our ongoing commitment to their growth and success.

"It is particularly gratifying to know that our #1 ranking is the voice of our customers and other providers," Peth continued. "Being top-ranked for six years running lets us know we're doing a lot of things right. Once again, we'd like to say thank you to our provider partners. It's their loyal support, along with the dedication and hard work of our team, that enables us to achieve this unprecedented success year after year."

The winner of the Best in KLAS award is determined through extensive surveys and interviews with healthcare providers on the efficiency and quality of health IT products. KLAS Research methodology rates and ranks vendors according to their ability to meet certain current and future expectations. Vendors are evaluated on six key categories: Culture, Operations, Product, Relationship, Value, and Loyalty. Thornberry received an A rating in every category. 

The Best in KLAS designation is a recognition of outstanding efforts to help healthcare organizations in their quest to deliver quality patient care. "Best in KLAS is about raising the bar for healthcare technology," says KLAS President Adam Gale. "It's providers and payers demanding better performance, usability, and interoperability. Ultimately, Best in KLAS is about giving providers and payers the tools they need to facilitate superior care and improved outcomes."
