ProVation® MD and UpToDate®

Clinical Decision Support and Patient Education is Just a Click Away

ProVation MD users can search the industry-leading clinical decision support resources from UpToDate, part of the Wolters Kluwer Health suite of point of care solutions. All that is needed is an appropriate license for the UpToDate content.

Furthermore, ProVation MD Gastroenterology and ProVation MD Pulmonology users can access the industry-leading patient education information from UpToDate.  By simply enabling Patient Education topics within the ProVation MD software, you can link to your licensed UpToDate patient education content.  This makes it easy to view and print relevant patient education associated with the impressions documented in the patient's procedure note.

The Power of UpToDate
