PHILADELPHIA, February 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

InOrder is designed to improve patient outcomes and meaningful use attestation
by providing intuitive authoring, superior usability and high quality content

Elsevier , a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical
information products and services, today announced the launch of InOrder , an
intuitive, cloud-based order sets solution that enables clinicians to author,
review and publish orders in a collaborative environment that quickly
translates evidence-based knowledge into better patient care.

"InOrder combines a highly efficient, easy-to-use content management workflow
solution for hospitals' content development and technology teams, with
hundreds of evidence-based, highly usable order sets that can be used 'out of
the box' or customized as needed," said Dr. Jonathan Teich, Elsevier's Chief
Medical Informatics Officer. "InOrder's localization feature allows users
tocreateorder setsfrom theirhospitalpreferences by incorporating
orderable items directly from their existing EHRs, including their current
workflows and terminologies."

By combining Elsevier's deep experience in providing evidence-based content
and the capability to make updates rapidly as regulations and medications
change, InOrder can help hospitals and clinicians increase patient safety and
prevent medical errors.

"Evidence-based order sets facilitate best practices in diagnosis and
treatment, thereby enabling healthcare organizations to improve care quality,
support standardization, and achieve meaningful use," said Nancy Fabozzi,
Principal Analyst, Frost & Sullivan. "Providers will value a well-designed,
technology-enabled solution based on trusted content that leverages
proprietary clinical systems, workflows, and terminologies that are designed
to accelerate product implementation, integration, usability, and clinician

Without integrated systems in place to support efficient order set creation
and review, hospitals and health systems often can take months to create or
update a single order set. Without understanding and streamlining the
communications among multiple authors and approvers, insufficient order set
systems can languish and fail despite the best efforts of the contributors.

"I strongly believe that an advanced order set solution can lead to
improvements in patient care," said Carol Steltenkamp, Chief Medical
Information Officer, University of Kentucky HealthCare, an InOrder beta
customer. "We were eager to implement InOrder by Elsevier because it
streamlines the entire process of creating, managing and maintaining order
sets, and ensuring that all order sets are based on current evidence-based
information and best practices."

InOrder includes:

  *Access to relevant evidence-based answers from ClinicalKey, Elsevier's
    clinical insight engine
  *Advanced collaboration tools for order set development, maintenance,
    access and tracking
  *Tailored, concise ordering focused on the most common scenarios
  *Availability across technology platforms enabled by a cloud-based delivery
  *Localization tools to incorporate hospitals' clinical terminologies and
    import existing order sets
  *Enhanced clinical guidance and evidence within the set
  *Quality metric indicators that highlight orders important for guidelines
    and metrics

"We developed InOrder with our customers top-of-mind and a goal of providing a
superior solution that would positively impact patient care and support
physician workflow," said Jay Katzen, president of Elsevier's clinical
solutions business. "Our focus was on delivering a quality, metrics-driven
system that was easy for clinicians to use. Clinicians will have the
flexibility to manage their own workflow and order sets, access content that
includes CDS guidance and regular updates, and utilize a layout based on the
way they think and work."
