Wolters Kluwer Announces ProVation Order Sets Bidirectional Integration with Market-Leading EHR Platforms

November 16, 2016 – The Health division of Wolters Kluwer, a leading global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, today announced development and delivery of ProVation® Order Sets bidirectional integration with the two market-leading electronic health record (EHR) platforms. These new integrations allow users to easily transfer order sets and their component elements into ProVation Order Sets for collaborative web-based review, authoring, editing, updating and approval, then back to the EHR system for production use.

“Our customers were clear that bidirectional integration with EHR systems is critical now that their needs have shifted from order set creation to order set maintenance and updating. In response, we developed advanced integration that sets a new standard among order set solutions,” said David A. Del Toro, President and CEO of Clinical Software Solutions at Wolters Kluwer. “Our powerful integration enables clients to take advantage of the robust governance, collaboration and audit features available in ProVation Order Sets. We continue to assess the market to develop and deliver the features and functionality expected from a market leader.”

ProVation Order Sets customers were instrumental in helping develop this new bidirectional EHR integration, informing development priorities and assisting in real-world testing of the integration. For example, Trinity Health in Minot, ND served as one of the advisors and beta sites for the integration with Cerner.

“Bidirectional integration with Cerner Millennium really extends the value of both ProVation Order Sets and the EHR,” said Jillane Boser, Clinical Informatics Nursing Lead at Trinity Health. “It gives us a downtime database of usable order sets that reflect the actual production content, and an efficient workflow to track and validate PowerPlans when they are new and when they are due for review. The order sets are accurate, they translate very well between the systems, and will assist us in providing the best possible care to our patients.”

A vital component of a healthcare organization’s quality improvement strategy, ProVation Order Sets is driven by clinical content management tools and powered by the trusted content of UpToDate® decision support. ProVation Order Sets streamlines cumbersome governance processes and helps providers adopt evidence-based medicine at the point of care, speeding compliance with quality measures driving reimbursement.
