Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. Key Developments

Practice Fusion Adds Medi-Span Drug Database to EHR Platform Impacting 4 Million e-Prescriptions a Month

Practice Fusion announced that it is partnering with Wolters Kluwer Health to integrate the Medi-Span® core drug database, resource for prescription and over-the-counter drug information and drug interactions, into the Practice Fusion EHR platform. The medical professionals that use the Practice Fusion EHR will have access to the latest medication information and recommended dosages when they e-prescribe medications to patients. Key Points about the Practice Fusion- Medi-Span Integration: the integration helps provide physicians with up-to-date medication information and dosages when e-prescribing through the Practice Fusion platform; providers are alerted about their patients' potential drug-drug or drug-allergy interactions. These drug-drug or-drug allergy interactions adversely affect over 2 million Americans per year; impacting more than 4 million e-prescriptions per month sent by Practice Fusion's 112,000 active medical professionals; over 5,000 prescription medication orders can be pre-configured through the Practice Fusion EHR to save providers time and reduce prescription errors. The integration of the Medi-Span database into the Practice Fusion EHR will help ensure that providers using the Practice Fusion EHR have the latest information on therapeutics, including newly approved medications. Medi-Span content also provides pre-configured prescription medication orders for more than 5,000 of the most common prescriptions, enabling e-prescribing providers to more easily enter prescriptions, while helping to reduce medication prescription errors. Providers save time by getting relevant and up-to-date prescription medication information directly through the Practice Fusion EHR, and patients can get the right medication they need. Clinical decision support interventions through Medi-Span drug-drug and drug-allergy checks offer real-time alerts to providers about possible drug interactions that could otherwise affect their patients' health.

Wolters Kluwer Health Launches UpToDate Anywhere in Japan

Wolters Kluwer Health has announced the launch of UpToDate Anywhere in Japan. UpToDate Anywhere enables Japanese hospitals and healthcare organizations to provide clinicians with mobile access to UpToDate, the acclaimed evidence-based clinical decision support resource. Hospitals and healthcare systems in Japan that have a strategic objective to enhance workflow integration can opt to embed UpToDate in their electronic medical record systems. This allows clinicians to search UpToDate with fewer clicks and without additional windows or log-ins. UpToDate Anywhere users in Japanese healthcare organizations benefit in particular from Search in person's Own Language, a customizable suite of multi-language search and navigation tools enabling clinicians to pose clinical questions in several languages, including Japanese. The intuitive auto-complete feature of UpToDate search also predicts words or phrases in Japanese to deliver faster search results.

Wolters Kluwer Health Unveils Sentri7 Enhancements for Improved Antimicrobial Stewardship

Wolters Kluwer Health announced the release of updates to its Sentri7® electronic surveillance solution to improve the efficient and effective management of antimicrobials in hospitals and health systems. The advanced offering will help antimicrobial stewardship teams improve patient care and lower costs by optimizing use of drugs associated with antibiotic-resistant strains. Combining real-time AMS functionality, clinical content and consulting services, Sentri7 provides key components to help healthcare facilities optimize antimicrobial stewardship programs (ASPs). Through a real-time, continuously generated antibiogram and an on-demand days-of-therapy (DOT) report, Sentri7 alerts clinicians to the improper use of antimicrobials and guides them to take proper actions while also providing a means of measuring stewardship program performance. Wolters Kluwer Clinical Decision Support Guidance™ offers real-time clinical guidance for intervention opportunities and expert-driven suggestions for next steps, while Smart Alerts™ provides immediate and accurate feedback on optimal antimicrobial use. Rounding out the solution is ClinicalOneSource.com, a web-based resource center that provides in-depth insight into infection-related topics, and change management consulting services provided by a team of MAD-ID certified clinicians for efficient implementation of a successful ASP. Sentri7is a web-based, real-time, decision support application that drives continuous improvement and empowers healthcare organizations to achieve excellence in care delivery. It supports multiple infection prevention responsibilities, including investigation of HAIs, isolation management, multi-drug resistant organism (MDRO) management and compliance with federal and state reporting requirements.
