LOWELL, Mass., Oct. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Clinical decision support (CDS) and analytics company, DiagnosisOne, recently joined the Alere family in July and is pleased to announce that it has been recognized by Black Book Rankings as the leading CDS vendor for Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs).

In August, Black Book Rankings reported client experience and customer satisfaction scores from organizations that participated in a survey to determine the top CDS solution vendor for ACOs. More than 2,800 CDS users were polled, the largest number to date, and 42 vendors were evaluated on the basis of 18 key performance indicators. DiagnosisOne received the highest scores and was identified as the leading CDS provider to ACOs.

"We are honored to be recognized as the leading CDS vendor for ACOs," said Mansoor Khan, Sc.D., CEO of DiagnosisOne. "We are also proud to join the Alere family and have access to broader resources that will advance our decision support and analytics solutions. DiagnosisOne remains focused on enabling customers to make the most informed, evidence-based decisions in real time, at the point of care and beyond."

The company provides end-to-end CDS capabilities that automatically make patient information from disparate systems accessible to a provider, along with a configurable collection of more than 25,000 actionable clinical alert observations and analytics. Its standards-based, turnkey solutions are fully configurable to each organization's specific needs with minimal effort, and they have been successfully deployed for hospital systems, multi-million member insurers, state and national governments, and leading electronic medical record vendors and systems integrators.

DiagnosisOne will continue to operate as an independent subsidiary of Alere, a leading provider of near-patient diagnostics and monitoring services, and its seasoned management team will remain intact. The company is currently seeking healthcare IT talent to support growing R&D efforts at its Lowell facility.
