HFMA Awards ‘Peer Reviewed’ Designation to Kaufman Hall’s Axiom Healthcare Suite

SKOKIE, Ill. June 19, 2018Kaufman Hall’s Axiom Healthcare Suite again earned the “Peer Reviewed by HFMA” designation from Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA), the company announced today.  The Axiom Healthcare Suite has been Peer Reviewed since 2015.


A leading provider of management consulting services, enterprise performance management and decision support software, Kaufman Hall underwent HFMA's rigorous Peer Review process, which provides healthcare finance executives and leaders with an objective, third-party evaluation of business solutions used in the healthcare workplace.


Only one-third of applicants receive the Peer Reviewed designation, based on an evaluation of effectiveness, quality, usability, price, value, and customer and technical support. The 11-step process includes review by a panel comprised of current customers, prospects who have not made a purchase, and industry experts.


“Executives look for a combination of technologies, data and insights to navigate the challenging waters of today’s healthcare landscape, so the HFMA Peer Reviewed designation is a worthy barometer for how we can help them optimize performance and create environments of continuous process improvement,” said Jay Spence, Vice President of Healthcare Solutions at Kaufman Hall.  “We are honored to receive this latest HFMA designation.”


The accolade builds on the momentum Kaufman Hall’s software offerings have established over recent years. In 2017, the company saw an 18 percent increase in new sales and a 33 percent rise in new recurring sales bookings.  More than 2,600 healthcare organizations use Kaufman Hall software to manage operations and quantify the financial impact of their decision making.


“We’re pleased to have Kaufman Hall renew their HFMA Peer Reviewed designation,” says HFMA President and CEO Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA. “The HFMA Peer Review process assures our members, through a rigorous evaluation, that the reviewed healthcare business solution meets an objective, third-party assessment of overall effectiveness, quality, and value."
