MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today that St. Mary’s Medical Center has selected ProVation® Order Sets, powered by UpToDate® Decision Support, as the organization’s electronic order set solution.
Located in Huntington, W. Va., the 393-bed St. Mary’s Medical Center is the largest medical facility in the tri-state region, Cabell County’s largest private employer and among the largest healthcare facilities in the state. A teaching facility associated with the Joan C. Edwards Marshall University School of Medicine, St. Mary’s trains medical residents in several specialties. The region’s leading medical provider, St. Mary’s is Joint Commission accredited with Centers of Excellence in cardiac care, cancer treatment, emergency/trauma services and neuroscience.
ProVation Order Sets, powered by UpToDate Decision Support, is an easily customizable order set authoring and management solution. It provides flexible integration into clinical processes to streamline the delivery of standardized care for improved patient safety, outcomes, clinician performance and regulatory compliance. Built upon ProVation Medical’s award-winning, clinician-designed technology platform, one of ProVation Order Sets’ primary values is the continuous updates to clinical content and medical evidence, including direct links to UpToDate, the resource of choice for more than 360,000 clinicians.
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 7,700 topics in 15 medical specialties and includes more than 80,000 pages of text and graphics, as well as links to Medline abstracts, more than 260,000 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 offer 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 feature vendor-neutral mapping and export capabilities that allow for flexible integration into any facility or vendor EMR or CPOE system.
“We are pleased that St. Mary’s, which is already utilizing UpToDate to provide clinicians with the most current and comprehensive medical evidence, has chosen to deploy ProVation Order Sets,” said Arvind Subramanian, President and CEO, Wolters Kluwer Health Clinical Solutions. “It is an organization committed to the highest quality of care, and ProVation Order Sets will play an integral role in furthering this mission.”
