Wolters Kluwer Health Client Advisory Board identifies compliance priorities

June 16, 2010

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – June 14, 2010 – Physician adoption and leveraging healthcare IT (HIT) to comply with changing regulatory and accreditation mandates were among the top priorities identified by the clinicians and healthcare executives who gathered in Chicago for the Wolters Kluwer Health Client Advisory Board.

The event, which took place June 8-9, brought together approximately 70 clients from Wolters Kluwer Health’s Clinical Solutions division to hear from leading healthcare IT (HIT) analysts, share best practices and voice their concerns for 2010 and beyond. Identified as priorities were integration of data from various HIT systems and sources across the hospital enterprise and gaining greater physician adoption of CPOE and clinical decision support. Also cited were the transition to ICD-10, RAC audit preparations and the need to stay ahead of changing governmental and accreditation requirements for drug information.

Client Advisory Board participants included CMIOs, CIOS, CMOs, pharmacy benefits managers (PBMs), electronic medical record (EMR) representatives, physicians, nurses, and hospital and retail pharmacists who represented the broad spectrum of Wolters Kluwer Health clients. They gathered to network, share experiences and articulate their HIT needs, as well as to discuss healthcare reform and industry trends. Attendees also offered feedback on the company’s point of care informatics solutions, including ProVation MD and EHR software, ProVation Order Sets, powered by UpToDate Decision Support, Facts & Comparisons, PriceRx and Medi-Span.

Additional advice and perspective was offered by two of industry’s leading analysts in their keynote addresses. David Bousfield, VP and lead analyst, Outsell, Inc., focused on the intersection of medical information and technology and identified what he considers to be the three key areas of opportunity for medical content providers: clinical decision support tools, medical education technologies and healthcare process analysis and assessment. Judy Hanover, research manager, IDC Health Insights, focused specifically on leveraging clinical decision support in the provider environment.
