Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today that its ProVation® MD software received top ranking in the Clinical Procedure Documentation Category of the 2010 Top 20 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Professional Services report. This marks the sixth consecutive year ProVation MD has been ranked Number One by KLAS, an independent healthcare IT vendor research firm that recognizes healthcare vendors for their leadership in working with customers to ensure satisfaction.
“As ProVation users for more than 8 years, we have directly benefited from the software, which has allowed us to streamline workflows and reduce costs while increasing compliance and accuracy,” said Stephanie Diem, RN, BS, Clinical Director, Washington Square Endoscopy Center. “Just as significantly, the company has shown a continued commitment to customer service, listening to and partnering with us to improve and innovate in a way that meets our evolving needs.”
“Achieving this recognition for the sixth straight year is an honor and validates our commitment to continuously developing and delivering the tools our clients need to stay ahead of the curve in an evolving healthcare environment,” said Arvind Subramanian, President & CEO, Wolters Kluwer Health Clinical Solutions. “It also demonstrates the dedication of our clinicians and coders, who work diligently to provide our clients with industry-leading documentation and coding solutions, and of our customer support team that consistently delivers world-class service.”
The KLAS Category Leader ranking measures performance based on customer surveys and in-depth interviews and gauges insight into specific strengths, weaknesses and future expectations for companies and their products. This annual recognition assists medical facilities in providing an unbiased and accurate vehicle for measuring performance in the healthcare industry, allowing for further understanding of how well suppliers and products perform.
ProVation MD 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 850 hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers in specialties, including cardiology, ENT, gastroenterology, general surgery, gynecology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, pain management, plastic surgery, pulmonology, and urology.
“In addition to automating documentation and coding, ProVation software reduces overhead costs and shortens billing cycles,” said Subramanian. “By simplifying these processes, eliminating expenses and recovering previously lost revenues, organizations are able to free resources that can be reinvested into enhancing patient care, quality and safety.”
