Wolters Kluwer releases new Quality Alignment Manager feature within ProVation Order Sets -

Healthcare information Wolters Kluwer has announced the release of Quality Alignment Manager, a comprehensive resource that assists healthcare organizations with compliance and adherence to evolving regulatory guidelines for performance. An enhancement to ProVation® Order Sets, powered by UpToDate® Decision Support, the new feature will flag order sets that are not aligned with quality measures and trigger alerts regarding needed edits or additions.

Rockford, Ill.-based SwedishAmerican served as a beta site for Quality Alignment Manager, leveraging the solution to identify potential gaps in quality measures compliance and to guide clinician editing of approximately 230 order sets. A division of UW Health, SwedishAmerican serves residents of 12 counties in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin through a dedicated and caring staff, a major acute care hospital and a free-standing outpatient cancer center in Rockford, a medical center in Belvidere, a network of 30 primary care and multi-specialty clinics and the region's largest home healthcare agency.

Quality Alignment Manager offers a library of regulatory quality measures, including more than 50 National Hospital Inpatient Quality Measures. Through an automated gap analysis and a set of customizable rules, the solution addresses the challenge that healthcare organizations face in keeping order sets up-to-date as national quality initiatives continue to expand and evolve. The system alerts healthcare organisations when order set content critical to quality measures is omitted or when content deviates from regulatory standards.

A central component of a healthcare organisation's care quality and core measures improvement strategy, ProVation Order Sets improves patient outcomes and quality of care by providing evidence-based order set templates co-developed with the editors of UpToDate. Customers achieve a return on investment through lower costs of care and the efficiencies of an intelligent clinical content management system. ProVation Order Sets also contains over 11,000 unbreakable links to UpToDate, the resource of choice for more than 1 million users worldwide.

Quality Alignment Manager will be on display during the HIMSS Annual Conference, April 12-16, in Chicago at the Wolters Kluwer booth (#8103).
