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

Located in Greenbrae, Calif., the 235-bed Marin General Hospital is the largest acute care hospital in Marin County, providing primary and secondary levels as well as care offered at the Marin Cancer Institute and Haynes Cardiovascular Institute. It is one of only 21 fully accredited Chest Pain Centers in California, is a verified Level III Trauma Center and has received accreditation from The Joint Commission and the California Medical Association’s Institute for Medical Quality.

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 400,000 users worldwide.

Central to this capability is the One Click Updates tool, which leverages UpToDate’s Practice Changing Updates highlighting 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 8,300 topics in 17 medical specialties and includes more than 97,000 pages of text and graphics, more than 385,000 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.

“Marin General Hospital is a hospital dedicated to providing high-quality patient care in a safe and friendly environment, as evidenced by its numerous awards and accreditations,” said Arvind Subramanian, President and CEO, Wolters Kluwer Health Clinical Solutions. “We are pleased that it has chosen ProVation Order Sets, powered by UpToDate Decision Support, to further this mission and provide current and comprehensive decision support at the point of care.”
