Solution to automate the creation, deployment and maintenance of order sets
Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today that East Tennessee Children’s Hospital has selected ProVation® Order Sets, powered by UpToDate® Decision Support, to automate the creation, deployment and maintenance of order sets.
Located in Knoxville, Tenn., the 152-bed East Tennessee Children's Hospital is a private, independent, not-for-profit pediatric medical center caring for children in 16 counties in East Tennessee. Services include more than 100 pediatric subspecialties, including cardiology, critical care, emergency medicine, endocrinology, gastroenterology, neurology, radiology and surgery. It is certified by the state of Tennessee as the only comprehensive regional pediatric center in its region and is accredited by The Joint Commission.
ProVation Order Sets is an easily customizable order set authoring and management solution that 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 the primary values of ProVation Order Sets is the continuous updates to clinical content and medical evidence. This includes direct links to UpToDate, the resource of choice for more than 360,000 clinicians.
Central to this capability is the One Click Updates tool. The tool 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 on 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.
“East Tennessee Children’s Hospital is dedicated to providing the best possible healthcare to every child served,” said Arvind Subramanian, President and CEO, Wolters Kluwer Health Clinical Solutions. “We are pleased that they have chosen ProVation Order Sets, powered by UpToDate Decision Support, to further this mission and improve quality and care outcomes.”
