MINNEAPOLIS -- January 16, 2013

Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare
professionals and students, announced today that Centra Health has selected
its ProVation^® Medical software for cardiology procedure documentation and
coding in its cardiac catheterization labs.

ProVation software replaces dictation/transcription and streamlines the coding
and billing process. Unlike cardiovascular information systems (CVIS), which
collect patient measurements and administrative data, ProVation MD for
Cardiology lets clinicians quickly and completely document medical procedures
at the point of care, and then applies the appropriate reimbursement codes to
drive compliance and revenue recovery. It interfaces with cardiovascular
nursing, imaging and measurement systems to complete the electronic
documentation process and free busy cardiologists and technologists from
time-consuming dictation.

Located in Lynchburg, Va., Centra is a nonprofit regional healthcare system
providing comprehensive, state-of-the-art health services to the residents of
central and southwest Virginia through three acute care hospitals, Lynchburg
General, Virginia Baptist and Southside Community. Centra also includes
residential and outpatient mental health facilities, home health and hospice
programs, and mammography, sleep disorders, wound care and hyperbaric medicine
centers. It was ranked as one of the safest hospitals in the country, placing
the organization in the top 5 percent of hospitals nationwide for low
complication and mortality rates. It has also been recognized by Hospitals &
Health Networks as one of the country’s Most Wired and Most Wireless

“Centra Health is clearly dedicated to providing the highest quality care, as
evidenced by their many awards and achievements,” said Mike Haldane, Vice
President and General Manager, Clinical Documentation, Wolters Kluwer Health
Clinical Solutions. “We are pleased that they have chosen ProVation MD for
Cardiology to further this mission and provide streamlined documentation and
coding in their cath labs.”
