NMCC selects Wolters Kluwer Health's UpToDate to provide evidence-based decision support for patient care -

Wolters Kluwer Health, a global provider of clinical technology and evidence-based solutions, has announced that National Medical Care Company (NMCC) based in Saudi Arabia has selected UpToDate, UpToDate Advanced, and Medi-Span to enhance patient safety by providing access to evidence-based decision support through CareWare, their electronic medical record (EMR) from Adaptive TechSoft.

NMCC, a health system established in 2003 with two hospitals – Riyadh Care Hospital and National Care Hospital – will integrate UpToDate's Infobutton into the CareWare EMR using the HL7 standard to retrieve UpToDate content that relates to the diagnosis, medication, clinical pathways, and patient education.

The UpToDate integration in CareWare will enable clinicians to save time by accessing UpToDate content within their daily workflow via a single key click. Additionally, clinicians will be able to quickly access content that is specific to a particular patient through the EMR.

Engr. Ibrahim Alammar, Chief Information Officer, NMCC, expressed his satisfaction with the implementation process, saying, "The Wolters Kluwer team played an invaluable role in delivering strategically designed training and implementation rollout plans, based on the size of our hospitals and our own unique structure and needs. The team aligned with our vision of being at the forefront of healthcare by providing high-quality care to improve the wellbeing of our community."

Wolters Kluwer Health supports clinical effectiveness, learning and research, clinical surveillance and compliance, as well as data solutions. The company's trusted clinical technology and evidence-based solutions engage clinicians, patients, researchers and students in effective decision-making and outcomes across healthcare.
