Chicago, IL – May 5, 2016 — Impact Advisors, LLC, a leading provider of healthcare information technology services, announced today it has been rated as the top performing Epic consulting firm, with a score of 93.5 in the Broad category, in the Epic Consulting 2016 Performance Report released by KLAS.
In its research, KLAS analyzed 33 companies in the areas of Enterprise Implementation Leadership, Implementation Support and Staffing, Go-Live Support and IT Advisory Services.

“We are proud that we continue to be recognized by our clients for our leadership and strategic services, which is testament to the exceptional work of our Associates,” said Peter Smith, CEO of Impact Advisors. “This recognition is a validation that we are achieving our goal of providing a wide breadth and depth of exceptional quality, value, and impactful results to our clients.”
Impact Advisors was recognized for its Enterprise Implementation Leadership, which includes engagements in which a consulting firm plays a major role in helping an organization implement clinical and/or revenue cycle products; includes providing project leadership and a large team (eight or more consultants) and bearing some responsibility for the overall success of the project. The firm scored a 95.3 in this area and was the top-rated firm in this category in 2014.
One provider explained the benefit of Impact Advisors’ support: “I don’t think we could have done our Epic implementation without Impact Advisors. We hired them because we had a short timeline, and they came in and pretty much led the charge. Our team attended meetings, made design decisions as needed, and provided input. But overall, Impact Advisors led that timeline, and they marched us down what needed to happen next.”
In addition, Impact Advisors was the top-ranked firm, with a score of 96.0, in the IT Advisory Services category. This category ranks engagements in which consultants help Epic clients in one or more of the following areas: pre-implementation planning, assessment and strategy work related to Epic, clinical optimization, and revenue cycle optimization.
One provider noted: “Impact Advisors helped us meet all of our time frames, fill the gaps, and do everything we needed to do to improve our system. Because they were so good and efficient, they actually went the extra mile to give us enhancements and functionality that we hadn’t initially planned for. The consultant we worked with had enough experience to optimize our system and take it beyond what we wanted it to be. Impact Advisors helps me keep in good stead with my system.”
