The company is one of only five vendors included in the Leader category, which represents those vendors who are well positioned today through current capabilities and which are best positioned to gain market share over the next few years.
The rankings and assessments provided by IDC Health insights were based on examining each vendor's current capabilities and future strategies through a process of briefings, customer references and its own secondary research. The 16 vendors that were evaluated in this report include leaders in the industry that were chosen for their market share and penetration or their potential growth opportunities.
In positioning AxSys' Excelicare platform as a Leader, IDC Health Insights states that a key differentiator is that the Excelicare platform was built from ground up to support collaborative care across the continuum of care rather than designed to work within the ‘four walls’ on an institution. The report goes on to state that as Excelicare was primarily designed for the UK health system, the company understands the value of collaborative, coordinated and accountable care across boundaries. "Healthcare organisations looking for active care coordination functionality to manage any of the value-based purchasing strategies, including ACOs, patient centered medical homes, and bundle payments, should consider AxSys Technology's Excelicare," said Lynne A. Dunbrack, program director, Connected Health IT Strategies, IDC Health Insights and author of the report.
AxSys has 125 clients worldwide, including four enterprise Health Information Exchange's (HIEs) in the United States and customers across Canada, England, Ireland, India, and Scotland. The company’s key product, Excelicare, has all the core components to support chronic disease management, a personal health record (PHR), and for the US market, an ONC-certified complete electronic health records (EHR) module.
"The recognition given to AxSys in the IDC Health Insights report coming soon after Gartner naming AxSys as a Global Cool Vendor in Healthcare IT is testimony to the innovation and vision that has gone into creating the Excelicare platform," said Pradeep Ramayya, chief executive officer of AxSys Technology. "Our mission is to help organisations deliver care that is coordinated, personalised and quality assured so that patients are the beneficiaries of investments in healthcare reform and we believe that Excelicare is the right platform to make this happen."
