June 10, 2010

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -June 9, 2010 – Wolters Kluwer Health, a provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today that Sibley Memorial Hospital has selected ProVation Order Sets, powered by UpToDate Decision Support, as its electronic order set solution. The hospital will implement the latest version of the software, which includes the unique One Click Updates tool, enabling easy and automatic updating to keep order sets current with the latest medical evidence.

Sibley Memorial is a 328-bed acute care community hospital located in Washington, DC. A major provider of surgical services, the hospital features one of the most active orthopedic surgery programs of any hospital in the District of Columbia.

Home to a variety of multi-disciplinary centers including cancer, breast health, pain management and rehabilitative medicine, Sibley Memorial is accredited by the Joint Commission, American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer and the College of American Pathologists. Its oncology program is accredited as a Community Hospital Cancer Program by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer, and its mammography services are certified by the American College of Radiology Mammography Accreditation Program and the Food & Drug Administration.

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 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 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.
