The Pharmacy Revenue Champion was chosen based on the following criteria:

Craneware evaluated internal customer statistics that show system usage. Algorithms were applied to equally weigh customer size to ensure that facility size did not skew the metrics and system utilization could be accurately evaluated. Craneware then examined top utilization scores for each of the eight categories, Pharmacy Revenue being one category.

A monthly snapshot of customer performance was compared to Craneware benchmarks. This evaluation viewed sustained performance and quality utilization throughout the year.
Craneware also evaluated clients who share their success stories through participation in conferences, webinars, case studies, testimonials, Advisory Councils, etc. Craneware strongly encourages customers to share their experiences and learn from each other.

“When reviewing all of this criteria, Firelands rose to the top of the list,” said Brian Thompson, senior territory sales manager for Craneware. “This is a significant accomplishment.”
