MINNEAPOLIS -- February 27, 2013

Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare
professionals and students, announced today the introduction of ProVation^®
Care Plans, powered by Lippincott’s Nursing Solutions, a robust software
solution that provides nurses and allied health professionals with the tools
they need to create, customize and maintain evidence-based interdisciplinary
care plans.

ProVation Care Plans, powered by Lippincott's Nursing Solutions offers
evidence-based care plans developed by the expert Lippincott’s Nursing
Solutions team and its network of hundreds of practicing clinicians. Combined
with the dynamic ProVation software, it allows hospitals to define and
maintain a custom care plans library while adhering to industry-accepted
nursing and medical diagnoses, goals and interventions. ProVation Care Plans
supports the care plan customization process, utilizing a full suite of
embedded links to online, evidence-based practice content from Lippincott’s
Nursing Solutions.

Created in partnership with Lippincott's Nursing Solutions, the leading
international provider of online evidence-based practice workflow products,
customers can customize care plan templates and then import them into their
electronic medical record (EMR) system for clinicians to use as a basis for
care. When combined with full access to the Lippincott’s Nursing Solutions
product suite, clinicians can, at the point of care through their EMR,
directly access both care plan information and all accompanying evidence-based
content needed to effectively manage care. The total solution provides the
latest evidence-based practice at the bedside, which supports the providers’
need to improve their performance measures and quality indicators, helping
health systems better manage patient care.

“By providing nurses with clinical information and best practices alongside
the care plans, we are making evidence-based practice actionable to the
patient-centric care process,” said Judy McCann, Chief Nurse, Lippincott’s
Nursing Solutions, Wolters Kluwer Health. “This allows organizations across
the continuum of care to realize the benefits of improved quality,
standardized care, reduced costs, and reduced adverse events.”

Driven by the best available evidence from Lippincott’s Nursing Solutions,
UpToDate^® and Ovid MEDLINE^®, ProVation Care Plans ensure that
interdisciplinary care teams have the information they need to enhance
clinical practice and demonstrate compliance with credentialing and standards
for the Joint Commission and other regulatory bodies. Complete with a database
of more than 270 evidence-based care plans, including reference links to
online resources of current best practices, quality and safety measures,
treatments, drug information and diagnostic tests, ProVation Care Plans allows
hospitals to drive clinical consensus on standards of care and extend the
reach of evidence-based practice across the organization.

“By combining powerful software with trusted clinical content, ProVation Care
Plans, powered by Lippincott’s Nursing Solutions provides nurses and allied
health professionals with the information they need to enhance care outcomes
and drive interdisciplinary, evidence-based care that can be easily documented
within the organization’s EMR,” said Mike Haldane, Vice President and General
Manager, Clinical Documentation, Wolters Kluwer Health, Clinical Solutions.
“We are pleased to unveil this solution and partnership and are confident the
offering will provide organizations with the tools they need to streamline
development and maintenance of care plans.”
