New Analysis Further Demonstrates Clinical Benefits and Return on Investment Associated with ProVation Order Sets, powered by UpToDate Decision Support
MINNEAPOLIS --(Business Wire)--
Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for
healthcare professionals and students, announced today the release of
additional data demonstrating best practice findings and
return-on-investment (ROI) achieved through hospital implementations of
ProVation® Order Sets, powered by UpToDate®
Decision Support. Specifically, aggregated data from several
hospitals revealed that the ROI associated with use of evidence-based
order sets and a clinical content management system was significant,
with time-to-payback for the investment as low as 13 months.
ROI analyses were conducted on data from three hospitals including
Southeast Alabama Medical Center (Dothan, AL) and FHN Memorial
(Freeport, IL), all of which have implemented ProVation Order Sets with
their CPOE systems. Summarized in a new report from IDC (News - Alert) Health Insights,
Selection: Optimizing the Creation and Maintenance of Order Sets for
Ongoing CPOE Success", Doc #HI242872, August 2013 (subscription
required), the results demonstrate increased productivity for medical
and clinical staff, gains in operating profit, improved physician
satisfaction and expected financial incentives from federal initiatives
such as Value-Based Purchasing and Meaningful Use.
A central component of a healthcare organization's patient care and
quality measures improvement strategy, ProVation Order Sets provides
evidence-based order set templates for use in CPOE systems. Templates
also include embedded links to UpToDate recommendations, thousands of
UpToDate narratives and links to regulatory quality measure definitions,
all of which can be delivered in the CPOE system for use at the point of
care. Access to order sets within CPOE streamlines delivery of
standardized care and helps drive improvements in patient safety,
outcomes, clinician performance and regulatory compliance.
"As one of the most time-consuming steps in CPOE implementation, the
efficient and thorough movement of clinical content stored in
paper-based order sets to electronic systems is critical to success,"
said Judy Hanover, Research Director, IDC Health Insights. "Th business
value of the ProVation content management system was repeatedly
demonstrated through our review of these implementation projects. In the
future health reform environment, order sets and other clinical content
from EHR and CPOE systems will need to have portable, configurable
designs that are easy to manage and review."
The report will be the focus of a webinar, "Maximize ROI by Leveraging
Evidence-based Order Sets and Clinical Content Management Systems,"
taking place October 9, 2013 at 11 a.m. CDT (News - Alert) and featuring Hanover, IDC
Vice President of Business Value Consulting Randy Perry, and a panel of
ProVation customers. Registration for the webinar can be accessed here.
"The value proposition of IT purchases in today's healthcare climate has
become a critical factor for future positioning and success," Mike
Haldane, Vice President and General Manager, Clinical Documentation,
Wolters Kluwer Health, Clinical Solutions. "Industry research repeatedly
points to the ability of ProVation Order sets to deliver significant
return on investment and high clinical value, and it is our intention to
continue refining and advancing our products to help healthcare
organizations reduce costs and improve outcomes."
