  • February 15, 2017 – The Health division of Wolters Kluwer, a leading global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, announced today the release of a cloud-based Reference Data Management (RDM) solution within its Health Language® platform. The new RDM offering provides the data management infrastructure needed to establish a single source of truth, enable interoperability, and optimize analytics for regulatory and value-based programs.

    Healthcare organizations are increasingly turning to RDM as a best-practice strategy for managing and using growing volumes of clinical and claims data to navigate evolving regulatory initiatives such as the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) and the 21st Century Cures Act. A function of Master Data Management, RDM addresses data variability across the industry’s wide array of disparate healthcare terminologies and codes.

    The new RDM solution enhances existing analytics and data warehouse investments by offering a flexible cloud-based approach for managing reference data.  The Health Language platform provides the following:

    • Content—establish a single source of truth for all terminology-related maps, value sets, and code sets by accessing all updates from a web-based content portal. 
    • Applications—enable interoperability and increase the quality of your analytics with support for mapping clinical and claims data, modeling custom content, managing value sets, and searching terminologies and code sets. 
    • Web-based APIs—integrate reference data into existing data warehouses or analytics platforms by utilizing a suite of cloud-based APIs, which complements current IT and infrastructure investments.
    • Consulting Services—leverage a team of terminology experts consisting of medical informaticists, certified coders, pharmacists, and PhDs to elevate the quality of your analytics and data management programs.

    “Wolters Kluwer is committed to providing innovative and flexible terminology management solutions that empower providers, payers, and health IT vendors to prioritize and streamline interoperability and to optimize big data and analytics initiatives across the healthcare ecosystem," said Dan Buell, General Manager and Executive Leader, Health Language at Wolters Kluwer. “The release of our new RDM solution furthers this commitment by helping organizations establish and maintain a single source of truth and overcome challenges associated with evolving regulatory requirements and quality measure reporting.”

  • Tampa General Hospital is Among More Than 260 EndoWorks Customers That Have Moved to ProVation MD Since Olympus Announced its Departure from the Endowriter Market

    February 17, 2017 – The Health division of Wolters Kluwer, a leading global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, announced today that its roster of EndoWorks conversions to ProVation MD® for Gastroenterology (GI) continues to grow exponentially in advance of Olympus’ departure from the endowriter market. Among the 175 healthcare organizations that moved from EndoWorks to Wolters Kluwer’s gastroenterology structured reporting software in 2016 was Tampa General Hospital, whose 25 GI physicians are benefitting from streamlined documentation and accelerated workflows.

    More than 260 healthcare organizations have transitioned to ProVation MD for GI—including successful migration of nearly 1 million historical procedure notes—since being named by Olympus as a preferred replacement for its endowriter software. That designation makes Wolters Kluwer one of just two vendors able to license an Olympus-developed export utility to seamlessly migrate data from EndoWorks to ProVation MD, which played an important role in Tampa General’s decision.

    A 1,011-bed private not-for-profit hospital, Tampa General is one of the largest hospitals in Florida and serves a population of more than 4 million. It is the primary teaching affiliate of the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine. Approximately 8,000 procedures are performed at its GI facility every year.

    “That recommendation from Olympus swayed us toward ProVation, as did the recommendation from several of our doctors who used it at another outpatient facility who said it was easy to use and manage. We also took a hard look at other vendors and found that ProVation was the market leader, especially for GI reporting and image capture,” said Tampa General Systems Analyst AJ Venezia. “ProVation provides us with everything we wanted, ease of use, ease of structured reporting, and content that is highly reportable.”

    He added, “The field engineer that came on site was extremely helpful and followed up after he left to make sure our hardware was working, and the trainers who came on site during go-live worked side-by-side with our physicians and made everyone feel very comfortable with ProVation MD.”

    ProVation MD will be featured among Wolters Kluwer’s point of care solutions in Booth #1543 at the 2017 HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition, taking place February 20-22 in Orlando, Fla. It is the only dedicated structured reporting and coding solution that provides clinically relevant, intuitive software for more accurate and complete documentation of procedures. It allows physicians to efficiently capture robust detail from even the most complex procedures, then automatically generates clear, complete procedure notes and appropriate reimbursement codes, quickly, easily and without dictation. By automatically applying the reimbursement codes and disseminating critical procedural information, ProVation MD ensures appropriate payment, reduces costs and streamlines quality reporting while improving clinical communication and care coordination.

    ProVation MD offers more precise reporting, which for Tampa General translates into the capture of a greater number of billable codes. Further, because the software can be customized to suit physicians’ specific needs, documentation and patient through-put are accelerated.

    “Anytime you can make a doctor’s workflow faster, they will appreciate it,” said Venezia, adding that the hospital will also be leveraging the export utility to migrate about 47,000 records representing seven years’ worth of data from EndoWorks to ProVation MD. “That is important because it will give our physicians access to historical data, which lets them see things like the number of procedures that were done at certain times of the year. That is critical for our Fellows because it’s part of their credentialing process.” 

    “Access to the export utility is key to a comprehensive and disruption-free transition to ProVation MD that accelerates clinician adoption by speeding access to truly advanced procedure documentation,” said David A. Del Toro, President & CEO of Clinical Software Solutions at Wolters Kluwer. “Those benefits, combined with our 20-year commitment to improving procedure documentation for better clinical outcomes and accelerated ROI, world-class customer service and superior end user training, are why Tampa General Hospital and many other EndoWorks customers have turned to ProVation MD.”
