Adena Health System Selects ProVation Software for Cardiology Procedure Documentation, Coding

January 28, 2008 - Wolters Kluwer Health recently said Adena Health System has selected ProVation MD for Cardiology for procedure documentation and coding.

Adena, which currently uses ProVation MD for Gastroenterology and Pulmonary procedures, will use the software to document diagnostic, interventional and peripheral vascular cases at its Adena Regional Medical Center catheterization lab in Chillicothe, OH.

ProVation MD software for procedure documentation and coding compliance replaces dictation/transcription and streamlines the coding and billing process, the company said. Unlike cardiovascular information systems (CVIS), which collect patient measurements and administrative data, ProVation MD allows clinicians to quickly and completely document medical procedures at the point of care, then applies the appropriate reimbursement codes to drive compliance and revenue recovery. ProVation MD interfaces with cardiovascular nursing, imaging and measurement systems to complete the electronic documentation process and free busy cardiologists and technologists from time-consuming dictation.

“We’ve put as much time and effort into providing state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization procedures as open-heart surgery," said Marcus Bost, CIO, Adena Health System. "In addition to leading-edge clinical care, we're also dedicated to using the best IT solutions to streamline the practice of cardiothoracic medicine and patient documentation."

"ProVation software will be an integral part of our financial strategy, as it allows us to eliminate transcription costs and recover revenue," he continued. "Its value also comes in speeding the completion and availability of electronic patient records, which will now be accessible to other caregivers and referring physicians immediately after the procedure."
