Accenture Recognized as a Leading Provider of Financial Improvement Services to Healthcare Industry
NEW YORK; Dec. 9, 2020 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been named a leading provider of financial improvement consulting services to healthcare organizations in a recent report from industry analyst firm KLAS Research, receiving a ranking of 94.7 out of 100.
The report — “KLAS Financial Improvement Consulting Report 2020: Performance Improvement in a Time of Upheaval” — assessed nine professional services firms for their ability to advance the financial improvement of healthcare organizations by reducing costs, increasing net revenue and/or enhancing efficiency. KLAS notes that Accenture is “…rated highest by interviewed clients for strength of partnership, and as an organization cited for careful listening, proactive engagement, and responsiveness” in delivering the financial outcomes clients need and expect.
“We are extremely pleased that KLAS validates — through client feedback — our outcomes-focused approach, our strategic ability to perform, and our ability to engage and execute for our clients,” said Kristin Ficery, a managing director at Accenture who leads the Health industry group in North America. “I am very proud of the talented team of professionals that makes it possible for Accenture to deliver on the promise of technology for the clients we serve.”
The report is based on interviews with healthcare payers and providers about the information technology (IT) products and services their organizations use. Questions cover five broad customer experience areas: loyalty, operations, services, relationship, and value. Interviews were conducted using a standard quantitative evaluation, and the scores and commentary collected are shared online in real time so that other providers and IT professionals can benefit from their peers’ experiences.
“Healthcare organizations seeking financial improvement consulting often have urgent needs and high expectations, so they need professional services firms who dependably deliver results, are reliable and drive high client confidence,” said Warren Whitford, vice president of healthcare services and value-based care at KLAS. “According to their clients, Accenture was one of the companies that performed most consistently and highly overall, in addition to Accenture clients reporting high satisfaction with the outcomes they experienced.”
