Union Hospital of Cecil County to Implement ProVation® Order Sets, powered by UpToDate® Decision Support
Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today that Union Hospital of Cecil County has selected ProVation® Order Sets, powered by UpToDate® Decision Support, as the organization's electronic order set solution.
Located in Elkton, Md., the 122-bed Union Hospital is a not-for-profit, full-service community hospital nationally recognized for clinical excellence in the treatment and prevention of disease. Dedicated to providing superior, personalized, quality healthcare to Cecil County and the surrounding communities, Union Hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission and holds the agency's Gold Seal of Approval. The hospital is the only facility in Maryland to receive the Medicare Excellence Award from the Delmarva Foundation twice. It also earned Quality Respiratory Care Recognition (QRCR) from the American Association for Respiratory Care.
ProVation Order Sets, powered by UpToDate Decision Support, is an easily customizable order set authoring and management solution that provides flexible integration into clinical processes to streamline the delivery of standardized care for improved patient safety, outcomes, clinician performance and regulatory compliance. Built upon ProVation Medical's award-winning, clinician-designed technology platform, one of ProVation Order Sets' primary values is the continuous updates to clinical content and medical evidence, including direct links to UpToDate, the resource of choice for more than 360,000 clinicians.
Central to this capability is the One Click Updates tool, which leverages UpToDate's Practice Changing Updates, which highlights new recommendations that could potentially change usual clinical practice. Enabled by a unique, structured approach to data management, One Click Updates alerts end users to evidence that may trigger the need to modify particular order sets. It then enables users to review recommended updates and apply them in a single step across multiple order sets.
UpToDate covers more than 8,300 topics in 16 medical specialties and includes more than 80,000 pages of text and graphics, as well as links to Medline abstracts, more than 385,000 references and a drug database. Content is continuously reviewed and updated by physician editors and authors.
In addition to integrated links to UpToDate and other trusted sources of medical evidence, ProVation Order Sets offer the flexibility to link additional clinical resources based upon client needs and preferences. Further, to help facilities achieve the highest possible degree of automation, ProVation Order Sets feature vendor-neutral mapping and export capabilities that allow for flexible integration into any facility or vendor EMR or CPOE system.
“Union Hospital is an organization focused on enhancing the health and wellbeing of the communities it serves,” said Arvind Subramanian, President and CEO, Wolters Kluwer Health Clinical Solutions. “We are pleased that it has chosen ProVation Order Sets, powered by UpToDate Decision Support, to further this mission and provide current and comprehensive decision support at the point of care.”
