ProVation Order Sets Combines Order Set, Clinical Decision Support Solutions


April 6, 2009

Wolters Kluwer Health's ProVation Order Sets, powered by UpToDate Decision Support, is an order set development solution that combines ProVation Medical’s technology platform with UpToDate’s premier clinical decision support content.

ProVation Order Sets aims to streamlines the delivery of standardized care for improved patient safety, outcomes, clinician performance and regulatory compliance.

An actionable, customizable order set authoring and management solution, ProVation Order Sets enables hospitals to put evidence-based healthcare into practice by establishing and maintaining standards of care. It helps improve patient care by providing easy access to a comprehensive repository of evidence; reduces costs related to medication errors and increases patient safety through built-in standardization at the point of care; aids implementation of evidence-based practice across medical specialties; and provides a solid return on investment by simplifying the order set review and approval process, according to the company.

The newly unveiled ProVation Order Sets offers automatic linking to content and evidence-based topic reviews from UpToDate, a clinical decision support tool covering more than 7,400 topics in 13 medical specialties. UpToDate includes more than 76,000 pages of text, graphics, links to Medline abstracts, more than 254,000 references and a drug database. Content is continuously reviewed and updated by physician editors and authors.

To help facilities achieve the highest possible degree of automation, ProVation Order Sets features vendor-neutral mapping and export capabilities that reportedly allow it to be integrated into any facility or vendor EMR in just three steps.

ProVation Order Sets also utilizes Wolters Kluwer Health’s Ovid platform to provide one-click access to all Web-based journal information to which a medical facility subscribes. This enables delivery of highly specific content in the context of clinician workflow, whether clinicians are developing order sets or utilizing them at the patient bedside.
