VigiLanz Ranked No. 1 by KLAS Research for Infection Control and Monitoring and Pharmacy Surveillance for Fourth Straight Year

The clinical surveillance company most trusted by hospitals is recognized as Best in KLAS, totaling 10 KLAS awards over 4 consecutive years

MINNEAPOLISFeb. 2, 2021 — VigiLanz, a clinical surveillance company, today announced that it has earned 2021 Best in KLAS designations from KLAS Research for Infection Control and Monitoring and Pharmacy Surveillance. This is the fourth year VigiLanz has been recognized by KLAS as a leader across both areas, and brings its total count of KLAS awards to 10. VigiLanz was also recognized in previous years in the Antimicrobial Stewardship category, which KLAS folded into Pharmacy Surveillance this year.

VigiLanz products earned Best in KLAS across two segments in the “2021 Best in KLAS: Software and Services” report, released on February 2:

Infection Control and Monitoring
Earning a score of 93.7, VigiLanz’s Dynamic Infection Control Monitor is a seamless, real-time automated monitoring system that works with an organization’s EHR. Its exception-based alert system puts all patient records under continuous surveillance to alert decision makers in real time of potential infections, MDROs, isolation candidates, organism clusters, conditions of concern, and reportable infections. The surveillance is based on a sophisticated set of customizable rule engines.

“VigiLanz has been really good through the COVID-19 crisis because every time we need a new test, I just email the vendor, and they add it to the product. The vendor’s help has been a blessing.”

  • Physician, August 2020klasresearch.com  

Pharmacy Surveillance
Earning a score of 91.1, VigiLanz’s Dynamic PharmacoVigilance product acts as a bridge between a hospital’s pharmacy and lab information systems, automating the comparison of patients’ drug usage with lab results, then presenting the potential for adverse drug event reduction. Based on the system’s built-in rule sets or hospital-specific guidelines, it automatically generates warnings and alerts that help clinicians make appropriate drug therapy decisions.

“The product is extremely easy to use, and that has to be a big part of our success. Something that is hard to use or clunky wouldn’t work for our teams’ workflow. It doesn’t matter how good the quality of the material is; a clunky product wouldn’t work because we are moving at such a fast pace.

  • Manager, June 2020, klasresearch.com

In addition, VigiLanz’s Antimicrobial Stewardship product monitors antimicrobial therapy to ensure appropriate use, including unnecessary antibiotic therapy, de-escalation opportunities, positive rapid diagnostic test results, drug-bug mismatches, and opportunities for antibiotic “time-outs.” The Antimicrobial Stewardship dashboard shows usage and resistance trends across the organization, is Meaningful Use 3 certified, and is certified by the National Healthcare Safety Network for easy, direct reporting on antibiotic use.

“I have found VigiLanz to be really helpful with their ability to fine-tune a rule and screen out a lot of noise. So we are getting exactly what we need. We can tease out geography, look at specific organisms, or look at different time frames. This is very powerful and very easy to do in the system.”

  • Director, January 2020, klasresearch.com

“In what’s proven to be a particularly challenging year for our hospital customers, we’re extremely proud to continue our recognition by KLAS four years in a row,” said VigiLanz Chairman and CEO David Goldsteen, MD. “We know our customers rely on us when they need it most—whether that’s triaging COVID-19 cases, monitoring the use of specific pharmaceuticals during a shortage, or saving clinicians time providing real-time alerts and reports so they can focus more on patients. It’s our job to help hospitals keep patients safe, and we’re honored to see the glowing feedback from this past year.”
