CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - June 21, 2016) - The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) today announced that the StrataJazz® financial analytics and performance platform from Strata Decision Technology (Strata) has achieved the "Peer Reviewed by HFMA®" designation for the second time.
HFMA's Peer Review process provides healthcare financial managers with an objective, third-party evaluation of business solutions. The rigorous, 11-step process includes a panel review comprised of current and prospective customers, as well as industry experts. Peer Review status is based on an evaluation of effectiveness, quality, usability, price and value, as well as customer and technical support.
"Earning the HFMA Peer Review designation is a very meaningful accomplishment as it requires that the application and the company all pass strict criteria," stated Dan Michelson, Chief Executive Officer of Strata. "Earning HFMA Peer Review status twice is an extra special honor as only one-third of the companies who submit actually pass. Peer Review is a critical 'seal of approval' for financial applications in healthcare."
"We're pleased that Strata has once again earned HFMA's Peer Review designation," said HFMA President and Chief Executive Officer, Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA. "The HFMA Peer Review program is a way for our members to identify the healthcare business solutions their peers are using to deliver organizational savings and performance improvements."
