Electronic order set solution will be implemented in the system’s three hospitals
Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today that Centegra Health System has selected ProVation® Order Sets, powered by UpToDate® Decision Support, as the electronic order set solution for the system’s three hospitals.
Headquartered in McHenry, IL, Centegra Health System comprises three hospitals located in Woodstock and McHenry, two immediate care centers, the Centegra Sage Cancer Center, six primary care facilities and two Health Bridge Fitness Centers. It is one of Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work in Healthcare and has been invited to participate in Fortune’s Top 100 Companies to Work for five consecutive years. It has also been listed as one of the 50 top-ranked health systems in the 100 Top Hospitals: Health Systems Quality/Efficiency study and the 100 Top Hospitals: Benchmarks for Success and has received HealthGrades’ Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence three years in a row.
ProVation Order Sets, powered by UpToDate Decision Support, 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 ProVation Order Sets’ primary values is the continuous updates to clinical content and medical evidence, including direct links to UpToDate, the resource of choice for more than 360,000 clinicians.
Central to this capability is the One Click Updates tool, which 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 8,300 topics in 16 medical specialties and includes more than 80,000 pages of text and graphics, as well as links to Medline abstracts, more than 385,000 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 upon 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.
“Centegra Health System is an organization dedicated to providing quality healthcare services in a positive work environment, as evidenced by its many national awards and recognitions,” said Arvind Subramanian, President and CEO, Wolters Kluwer Health Clinical Solutions. “We are pleased that it has chosen ProVation Order Sets, powered by UpToDate Decision Support, to further this mission by providing clinicians with current and comprehensive decision support at the point of care.”
