According to KLAS, “Health Catalyst customers praise them as being very flexible and a great partner to work with. Their solutions are scored highly in meeting the needs of clinicians at the point of care and in meeting the needs of care managers/coordinators and program administrators.”

KLAS further commented that Health Catalyst customers “feel like they are on a journey with Health Catalyst and are not just tackling population health on their own. As one associate medical director said, ‘Health Catalyst is really interested in getting the work done and making our relationship mutually beneficial. They don’t get hung up at all on things other companies get hung up on.'”

KLAS gathered feedback from 278 provider organizations to assess the performance of population health vendors. The KLAS study focused on asking participants to rate their vendors against two criteria: 1) the ease with which customers can establish and maintain data feeds and, 2) the quality of the resulting aggregated data. KLAS’ healthcare provider respondents rated Health Catalyst highly against both criteria.


Additional specific capabilities tracked by KLAS included “vendor flexibility,” reflecting a company’s ability to be “responsive to customer needs and readily adapt to the latest requirements.” Health Catalyst scored a 9 out of 9 in that category as a preliminary data company.

Health Catalyst also earned high scores among KLAS preliminary vendors in the following evaluation categories:

  • “Likely to recommend” (8.9 out of 10)
  • “Overall satisfaction” (8.6 out of 10) and “forecasted overall satisfaction” (8.8 out of 10)
