Recently, Lexmark Enterprise Software was cited as a Strong Performer for its Kofax TotalAgility platform for Dynamic Case Management (DCM) in The Forrester Wave™: Dynamic Case Management, Q1 2016.

"To end the costly cycle of waste in healthcare, the industry needs to drop it's current fee-for-service business model. The measure of success can no longer be defined by revenue per coded item, but must focus on the health outcomes that matter most to patients. This transformation will require healthcare providers to demand interoperability from their technology solutions, so the information contained in these systems can truly support clinician decisions."
