Kareo Clinical EHR, serving independent medical practices across the country, is now among the top 20 most popular EHRs, based on a report released by Capterra. It’s the dream of every adolescent—to be voted “Most Popular.” But what does it mean in the software space?
Since 2012, Capterra has conducted an annual report to recognize the market leaders in major software sectors. “Our goal is to provide relevant data to software buyers,” says Kate Connolly, Product Research Director at Capterra. “The Top 20 Most Popular report assists buyers in narrowing down their options and ultimately helps them make the best decision to meet their needs.”
For this reason, the Top 20 Most Popular EHR ranking recognizes the most widely adopted solutions based on the “People Metric.” Let’s take a closer look.
The “People Metric”
Kareo was assessed using Capterra’s reporting algorithm that analyzes the number of customers, number of active users and level of social media engagement – in other words, the “People Metric.”
What makes this market ranking unique is that Capterra’s report isn’t based solely on revenue, which would disproportionately favor more expensive solutions. “Revenue and numbers are part of the story, but not the whole story,” says Connolly. “Buyers want to know which companies are meeting customer needs on the widest scale, not the software company that makes the most money.”
In fact, Kareo’s affordability coupled with its high level of functionality is the reason why Kareo Clinical was named as a leader in the Gartner and Software Advice’s FrontRunners ranking for EHRs.
Building Online Community
One of the most interesting factors in Capterra’s ranking algorithm is the inclusion of social media presence. “We believe that vendors who are active in the software community position themselves as a thought leaders,” says Connolly, “and therefore have a greater voice and impact on the market.”
Including social presence as an indicator of market reach shows an understanding of how buyers make their decisions today. The Top 20 Most Popular EHR ranking looks for vendors who are fostering dialog in a variety of places online. This includes number of followers and how engaged the followers are with the brand, which is assessed by a combination of likes and follows as well as Klout score and Capterra reviews.
At nearly 38,000, Kareo topped the competition for Facebook followers by a wide margin. You can connect with Kareo in these online spaces:
