Decatur Medical Center to Deploy ProVation® Order Sets, powered by UpToDate® Decision Support

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today that Decatur Medical Center has selected ProVation® Order Sets, powered by UpToDate® Decision Support, as the hospital’s electronic order set solution.

Located in Decatur, IL, the 365-bed Decatur Medical Center is a not-for-profit, private hospital serving the communities of Central Illinois with a full range of comprehensive surgical and treatment services. It is affiliated with the University of Illinois College of Medicine’s School of Basic Medical Science and Clinical Medicine and the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine’s Family Practice Residency Program. In 2010, Decatur Medical received its second Silver Award from the Lincoln Foundation for Performance Excellence, which is based on the criteria of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Program.

ProVation Order Sets, powered by UpToDate Decision Support, is an easily customizable order set authoring and management solution that provides flexible integration into clinical processes to streamline the delivery of standardized care for improved patient safety, outcomes, clinician performance and regulatory compliance. ProVation Order Sets is built upon ProVation Medical’s award-winning, clinician-designed technology platform. One of its primary values is the continuous updates to clinical content and medical evidence, including direct links to UpToDate, the resource of choice for more than 450,000 users worldwide.

Central to this capability is the One-Click Updates tool, which leverages UpToDate’s Practice Changing Updates, which highlights new recommendations that could potentially change usual clinical practice. Enabled by a unique, structured approach to data management, One-Click Updates alerts end users to evidence that may trigger the need to modify particular order sets. It then enables users to review recommended updates and apply them in a single step across multiple order sets.

UpToDate covers more than 9,000 topics in 17 medical specialties and includes more than 77,000 pages of text and graphics, more than 328,000 Medline references and a drug database. Content is continuously reviewed and updated by physician editors and authors.

In addition to integrated links to UpToDate and other trusted sources of medical evidence, ProVation Order Sets offers the flexibility to link additional clinical resources based upon client needs and preferences. Further, to help facilities achieve the highest possible degree of automation, ProVation Order Sets features vendor-neutral mapping and export capabilities that allows for flexible integration into any facility or vendor EMR or CPOE system.

“Decatur Medical Center is dedicated to continuously improving and maintaining the health of the people living in the communities it serves,” said Arvind Subramanian, President and CEO, Wolters Kluwer Health Clinical Solutions. “We are pleased that they have selected ProVation Order Sets, powered by UpToDate Decision Support, to further this mission and provide evidence-based order sets at the point of care.”
