Wolters Kluwer aims to fight sepsis with educational resources and technologies
- 06 Sep 2017

Information services and solutions provider Wolters Kluwer Health, through its educational resources, guidelines and evidence-based clinical decision support (CDS) solutions, is helping clinicians improve outcomes through prevention, detection, and treatment of sepsis. Using innovative surveillance tools, healthcare organisations can now warn caregivers of patients at risk of sepsis expediting appropriate care, while minimising alert fatigue and false alerts.

POC Advisor, Wolters Kluwer's latest surveillance solution, has been shown to reduce the number of deaths while reducing the cost of care associated with sepsis. A Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA) study found that the new technology provided the sensitivity and accuracy to predict patient cases and warn clinicians, effectively reducing sepsis mortality by 50 percent and patient readmissions by more than 30 percent.

Delivering CDS interventions to the point of care has proven to be a significant challenge for many hospitals and health systems. One study found that clinicians ignore EHR safety notifications 49 to 96 percent of the time, primarily due to alert fatigue. POC Advisor combines electronic clinical surveillance and CDS with workflow and procedural changes, providing clinicians with a user-friendly, multi-tiered solution based on Wolters Kluwer's trusted medical evidence-based solutions.

Equally important is the need to have all members of the interdisciplinary healthcare team possess the necessary skills to recognise and treat early signs of sepsis, using the latest evidence-based practice guidelines to inform patient care and interventions, and to educate patients and their families on post-sepsis syndrome.

Wolters Kluwer Health helps nurses close the knowledge gap and improve outcomes in patients with sepsis by providing quick access at the bedside to the latest diagnosis and treatment guidelines through Lippincott Solutions. In addition, Lippincott NursingCenter site brings together the latest evidence-based articles and educational resources on sepsis to ensure that all nurses have access to critical resources to improve outcomes in patients with sepsis and reduce errors and care variability.

Further, Wolters Kluwer Health and the Sepsis Alliance are partnering to support awareness of sepsis as a medical emergency, providing resources for nurses and other healthcare professionals, including a survey on 'nursing knowledge gaps' to identify where clinicians need support to understand the latest standards of care.

MAP Health Management selects Wolters Kluwer's Health Language terminology management solutions to promote secure exchange of sensitive patient data
- 17 Aug 2017

Wolters Kluwer Health has announced that MAP Health Management® has chosen Health Language® to improve interoperability and support more compliant data exchange within its behavioural health population management platform. By integrating the terminology and data management solution, MAP enhances analytics capabilities for its clients, specifically addressing the sharing of sensitive patient information.

Population health management remains a focal point of industry efforts to improve outcomes and lower costs, requiring accurate and complete health information exchange and analytics. Especially in the behavioural health sector, providers must adequately address the nuances of sharing and protecting sensitive patient information-a category defined by high disclosure risks and often associated with mental health, genetics, substance abuse, reproductive care, sexually-transmitted diseases and other sensitive conditions.

MAP is using Health Language interoperability and mapping solutions to establish a single source of truth, promote interoperability and optimise analytics for regulatory and value-based programs. Specifically, MAP will be leveraging Sensitivity Codes to identify and filter sensitive information to keep it from leaving a patient's trusted provider organisation. These include nearly 40,000 clinical and claims codes covering Substance Abuse, Mental Health, Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Family Planning groups. This approach will enable MAP to meet and exceed legal and regulatory standards and hospital policies, while also meeting clinical and financial outcomes.

MAP delivers technology-enabled solutions, including telehealth and other remote engagement devices and applications that improve clinical and financial outcomes for chronic behavioural health disorders such as Substance Use Disorder. Its robust ecosystem of solutions empowers treatment providers, health insurance companies, health systems and patients with the right data at the right time to improve clinical and financial outcomes.
