UK Nature Index points industry to institutions providing ideas behind inventions - 10 Aug 2017

The Nature Index 2017 Innovation supplement sheds new light on the impact academic research is having on innovation by examining how research articles are cited in third party patents.

By looking at patents owned by third parties – informed by and citing academic work – rather than those held by institutions themselves, the influence of research on the development of products and services is exposed.

The supplement's tables contain some of the key academic players whose ideas may shape tomorrow's inventions. The top of these tables are occupied by both institutions with global reputations for high-quality research and others whose published work is having a disproportionately high impact relative to their size.

Ranked by a metric developed by The Lens, The Scripps Research Institute in San Diego (1) and Rockefeller University in New York (2) lead the way. Next are the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (3), University of Massachusetts Medical School (4) and The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (5). Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel (6) is the only non-US institution in the top ten, followed by three US research heavyweights: National Institutes of Health (7), University of California San Francisco (8) and Stanford University (9). Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is notably placed tenth.

38 of the top 50 institutions by The Lens metric are from the United States. From the rest of the world, institutions placed first in their countries include University of Strasbourg (16, France), University of Geneva (21, Switzerland), Hangyang University (23, South Korea), University of Dundee (26, United Kingdom) and Karolinska Institute (38, Sweden). From Japan, both Osaka University (31) and RIKEN (39) make the top 50.

The Normalized Lens Influence Metric provides a measure of the influence an institution's research has had on innovation by calculating the citations of research articles in patents owned by third parties, rather than those owned by institutions themselves. The metric has been derived for 200 high performing institutions that appear in the top 100 of at least one of a number of institutional rankings (Nature Index, Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), Thomson Innovation or the Leiden Ranking).

Nature Index data is also presented for the 200 institutions ranked by The Lens. For the first time, Nature Index data has been normalised against the total research output of an institution in the natural sciences, as indicated by the number of research articles an institution has published in the Web of Science from Clarivate Analytics. This provides a measure for comparing institutions' output in the Index relative to their research capacity, which can then be compared to the normalized Lens Metric that similarly takes into account the scale of the institution's research.

US Wolters Kluwer announces availability of ProVation Order Sets integration with Epic - 10 Aug 2017

Wolters Kluwer Heath has announced ProVation® Order Sets integration with Epic software to support the importing and exporting of information. This integration enables healthcare providers to streamline labor-intensive governance processes, optimise order set management and support existing order sets with evidence-based clinical content.

ProVation Order Sets integration leverages new order set import functionality to quickly and easily transfer Panels, Smart Groups and SmartSets between systems. The integration, currently available, enables users to import order sets from Epic into ProVation Order Sets, and export order sets directly to Epic. Hospitals can now leverage the full functionality of ProVation Order Sets for clinical content management and order set governance. This preserves the details of orders from the EHR and supports consistent terminology and structure across the care setting. This bidirectional sharing of information also helps hospitals adopt or extend evidence-based practices to drive increased quality-based reimbursement, and enables ProVation Order Sets to serve as a reliable CPOE downtime solution for access to approved order sets.

A vital component of a healthcare organisation's quality improvement strategy, the ProVation Order Sets solution combines powerful clinical content management tools and the trusted content of UpToDate® decision support.
