Siemens ACUSON S3000 Ultrasound System Named Best in KLAS

Aug 08, 2014

  • Company’s ultra-premium ultrasound system earns top honors in annual survey


Siemens Healthcare announced today that the research firm KLAS has named the ACUSON S3000, Siemens’ ultra-premium ultrasound system, the recipient of its 2014 Best in KLAS Award in the category of Ultrasound – General Imaging. The Best in KLAS designation is reserved for vendor solutions that lead the imaging and pharmacy automation equipment market segments with the broadest operational and clinical impact on healthcare organizations.


KLAS rankings are based on a series of surveys conducted with hospital and clinic executives, administrators, physicians, nurses, and other directors and managers with business responsibilities. Respondents are queried regarding their experiences with their vendors and products.


“This is a tremendous achievement because each of the top performers earned this recognition through the voice of their provider customers,” said Matt Terry, vice president of medical equipment and imaging research for KLAS. “Given that vendors must concern themselves with the complexities of a dynamic healthcare market and operational challenges, it is remarkable to see so many undeviating from their focus on helping providers succeed.”
