When it comes to the performance of health information exchange vendors, Epic was deemed by users to have high performance and a strong outlook for upcoming interoperability needs, according to a KLAS report.

EHR Intelligence reported on KLAS' findings, indicating users gave Epic above a 90 for a 2015 performance score (on a 100 point scale) and more than 90 percent of users said Epic would be able to meet interoperability needs in the next few years.

The KLAS report analyzed EMR-independent and EMR-dependent HIE vendors. Epic was one of two EMR dependent vendors; the other was eClinicalWorks, which scored 70 on the performance score and had just more than half of users saying the vendor would meet future interoperability needs.

For EMR independent vendors, Medicity received high marks, with a performance score of nearly 80 and more than 90 percent of users saying the vendor would meet future interoperability needs.
