TROY, Mich., September 22, 2008 – CareTech Solutions, an information technology (IT) services provider for hospitals and health systems, announced today that it leads the market in overall performance scores in KLAS’ 2008 Extensive IT Outsourcing Study.

CareTech’s overall performance score was 94.6 on a 100-point scale – the top score among six competing extensive IT outsourcing firms cited in the report, and the highest score KLAS has measured since first measuring extensive IT outsourcing performance in 2005.

CareTech earned 100-percent scores in each of the “business indicator” categories of Would You Buy it Again, Avoids Nickel-and-Diming, Keeps all Promises, Services Delivered within Budget/Cost and Would You Recommend to a Friend/Peer. In the report’s “performance indicator” section, which included evaluation of metrics such as Lived Up to Expectations, Services Delivered as Promoted and Executive Involvement, CareTech scored high, averaging 8.4 on a nine point scale. Survey participants providing detail on CareTech had no equity ownership in the organization.

“CareTech is very pleased to have set the KLAS record for overall IT outsourcing performance,” said Jim Giordano, president and CEO of CareTech Solutions. “This result speaks to CareTech’s commitment to exceeding our clients’ expectations by aligning our IT counsel, the expertise of our staff, and our best practices to support each hospital and health system client’s strategic patient care goals.”

The narrative section of the KLAS 2008 Extensive IT Outsourcing Report also lauds the level of executive involvement CareTech brings to client engagements, its highest overall score in the area of computer and network operations, and its “deep bench” of experts whose knowledge base is leveraged to resolve client issues.

KLAS is an independent research firm specializing in monitoring and reporting the performance of healthcare technology vendors.

Published in September, 2008, the KLAS Extensive IT Outsourcing report evaluates the performance of six professional service firms that provide services to hospitals that outsource a majority or all of the IT department for operation, application, and/or strategic support.
