Thanks to You: Security Audit Manager™ Named 2018 KLAS Category Leader

Written by Karen Pursch, Director, Patient Privacy Solutions

Even though Security Audit Manager™ (SAM) had already been named KLAS category leader three years in a row, before KLAS made their announcement earlier this year, we couldn't help but feel hope, excitement, and nervousness, too. We were confident, but we wondered, "Could we, with the help of our customers, do it again for a fourth consecutive year?"

Then we received word: SAM was named #1 in its category in the 2018 Best in KLAS Software & Services Report for the fourth straight year

SAM gets kudos from the most important source of all — our customers

With a mission to improve the world’s healthcare, KLAS is a highly respected firm that evaluates insights on medical software, services, and equipment to impartially reflect the voice of healthcare professionals.

"Best in KLAS" awards, which are based on feedback from actual users — people working on the front lines to overcome challenges in our industry — are the greatest endorsement we could ever have. 

We are so grateful to you, our customers, for expressing your opinions to KLAS; and I’m honored to share some of those comments with you here*:

“Security Audit Manager is terrific. We have had the product for several years, and it is in our long-term plans because of its great quality and the support we receive from Iatric Systems.”

 “The system’s features are intuitive, and that makes our jobs a lot easier.”

“The implementation and support from Iatric Systems are outstanding.
Those teams have been amazing and awesome to work with.”

Implemented in 1,000 facilities throughout North America, and now celebrating its 15th year on the market, SAM has been a huge benefit to privacy auditors. And I’m thrilled to tell you a little more about our exciting next evolution in patient privacy monitoring and breach detection, which came from working closely with our customers.

New Security Audit Manager iQ™ is patient privacy made even smarter

Iatric Systems will soon unveil the proud successor to Security Audit Manager — Security Audit Manager iQ™. Offering the best of SAM and much more, Security Audit Manager iQ™ is designed to stop patient privacy breaches in their tracks through smarter analysis and machine-learning algorithms, along with automated data-driven workflows and visual role-based behavioral analysis.

We’re confident this latest offering will help make patient privacy auditors even more effective. To learn more about Security Audit Manager iQ, contact us at
