"From our staff of 30+ clinicians and coders to our rigorous development process and 24-hour, world class customer service, it is our mission to develop and support the best documentation and coding solutions on the market,” said Arvind Subramanian, President & CEO, Wolters Kluwer Health Clinical Solutions and ProVation Medical.
ProVation® MD software for procedure documentation and coding compliance replaces dictation/transcription and streamlines the coding and billing process. Driven by deep medical content, ProVation MD allows clinicians to quickly and completely document medical procedures and apply the appropriate CPT and ICD codes, as well as CCI edits. ProVation is currently used by thousands of clinicians at more than 600 hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers, in specialties including Cardiology, ENT, Gastroenterology, General Surgery, Gynecology, Ophthalmology, Orthopedics, Pain Management, Plastic Surgery, Pulmonology and Urology.
“Now more than ever, healthcare institutions are seeking IT solutions that streamline processes and positively impact the bottom line, freeing valuable resources for investment into enhanced quality of care and patient safety,” said Subramanian. “By eliminating transcription and tying documentation to reimbursement codes, ProVation software provides a solid return on investment through the reduction of operating costs and the recovery of previously lost revenue. Our commitment to our clients means supporting their financial health, so they can focus completely on the health and well-being of their patients.”
