January 28, 2016 — The Health division of Wolters Kluwer announced the release of a complimentary e-book that demonstrates the critical role of integrated clinical decision support (CDS) to driving value and optimizing patient care in today’s healthcare environments. Integrated Clinical Decision Support: Accelerating Adoption of Evidence-Based Care for Optimal Outcomes outlines the evolution of CDS technology and effective implementation of integrated solutions as a foundational strategy for improving overall clinical and financial performance.

As the timeline for value-based care accelerates on the national stage, the e-book provides timely information to equip healthcare providers with effective and sustainable CDS strategies that will increase uptake of evidence-based clinical practices. Specifically, today’s healthcare organizations must respond strategically to national initiatives such as the Hospital Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) program—placing approximately $1.4 billion in payments at risk—and plans to tie 90 percent of Medicare payments to quality or value measures by 2018.

Specifically, the e-book will address the Five Rights of CDS and how the functionalities of various CDS solutions align clinical care activity with industry-respected implementation approaches. The e-book also introduces the integrated CDS offerings of Wolters Kluwer, including the referential content of Clinical Drug Information and UpToDate along with the actionable, intelligent and measurable alert foundation of Sentri7 advanced surveillance technology.

The e-book emphasizes the proven effectiveness of solutions like Sentri7 to combine alerts plus referential content to improve patient outcomes. Clinical surveillance tools simplify monitoring of multiple data streams, enable rapid identification of at-risk patients, facilitate evidence-based clinical decision-making and streamline reporting to management, stakeholders, and state and federal regulators—all of which are essential to achieving value- and outcomes-based objectives.
