Wolters Kluwer moves 175 customers and migrates nearly 1M procedure notes from EndoWorks to ProVation MD
- 17 Feb 2017

The Health division of Wolters Kluwer, a global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, has announced that its roster of EndoWorks conversions to ProVation MD® for Gastroenterology (GI) continues to grow exponentially in advance of Olympus' departure from the endowriter market. Among the 175 healthcare organisations that moved from EndoWorks to Wolters Kluwer's gastroenterology structured reporting software in 2016 was Tampa General Hospital, whose 25 GI physicians are benefiting from streamlined documentation and accelerated workflows.

More than 260 healthcare organisations have transitioned to ProVation MD for GI, including successful migration of nearly 1 million historical procedure notes, since being named by Olympus as a preferred replacement for its endowriter software. That designation makes Wolters Kluwer one of just two vendors able to license an Olympus-developed export utility to seamlessly migrate data from EndoWorks to ProVation MD, which played an important role in Tampa General's decision.

A 1,011-bed private not-for-profit hospital, Tampa General is one among the largest hospitals in Florida and serves a population of more than 4 million. It is the primary teaching affiliate of the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine. Approximately 8,000 procedures are performed at its GI facility every year.

ProVation MD will be featured among Wolters Kluwer's point of care solutions in Booth #1543 at the HIMSS17 Annual Conference and Exhibition, taking place February 20-22 in Orlando, Fla. It is the only dedicated structured reporting and coding solution that provides clinically relevant, intuitive software for more accurate and complete documentation of procedures. It allows physicians to efficiently capture robust detail from even the most complex procedures, then automatically generates clear, complete procedure notes and appropriate reimbursement codes, quickly, easily and without dictation. By automatically applying the reimbursement codes and disseminating critical procedural information, ProVation MD ensures appropriate payment, reduces costs and streamlines quality reporting while improving clinical communication and care coordination.

ProVation MD offers more precise reporting, which for Tampa General translates into the capture of a greater number of billable codes. Further, because the software can be customised to suit physicians' specific needs, documentation and patient through-put are accelerated.

The new RDM offering provides the data management infrastructure needed to establish a single source of truth, enable interoperability, and optimise analytics for regulatory and value-based programs.

Nebraska Medicine to integrate POC Advisor from Wolters Kluwer to improve sepsis outcomes
- 03 Feb 2017

The Health division of Wolters Kluwer, a global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, has announced that Nebraska Medicine will integrate POC Advisor into clinical workflows to improve sepsis outcomes. POC Advisor uses real-time clinical surveillance and analytics to deliver highly accurate sepsis alerts and patient-specific treatment advice to clinicians at the point of care.

Sepsis continues to be a major challenge for the nation's healthcare providers. Claiming 258,000 lives annually in the US, it remains the deadliest condition treated in hospital critical care units. It is also the most expensive to treat, with an estimated annual financial burden of nearly $24 billion.

POC Advisor will initially be deployed in medical units with the highest sepsis incidence rates. Longer term plans call for the solution to be deployed hospital-wide.

Using automated real-time surveillance, POC Advisor aggregates, normalises and analyses patient data from disparate clinical systems to deliver timely and accurate sepsis alerts and advice. Hundreds of rules are built into the platform to account for possible comorbidities and medication abnormalities, ensuring that alerts are both highly sensitive and specific. In a study published in the Journal of American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA), POC Advisor was found to reduce sepsis mortality and sepsis-related 30-day readmissions by 53% and 30%, respectively.
