Elsevier Integrates its Clinical Decision Support Solutions into PatientKeeper CPOE
New collaboration delivers Elsevier’s evidence-based clinical decision support content and analytics tools into the physician workflow through PatientKeeper CPOE
Philadelphia, PA & Waltham, MA, February 21, 2012 – Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, and PatientKeeper®, the leading provider of physician healthcare information systems, today announced a collaboration in which Elsevier will integrate its clinical decision support (CDS) and analytics resources into PatientKeeper’s CPOE software product. The collaboration brings world-class, evidence-based clinical content into the physician’s workflow through PatientKeeper’s uniquely physician-friendly computerized physician order entry (CPOE) system.
For PatientKeeper’s physician users, this collaboration provides value-added content that enables physicians to make better and faster patient care decisions that lead to improved outcomes. The collaboration delivers deeper integration with “context specific” CDS information from many of Elsevier’s solutions, including Gold Standard’s Clinical Pharmacology and integrated Drug Database, the Pinpoint clinical analytics suite from MEDai, and Elsevier’s Order Sets solution, which will launch later in 2012. In addition, Elsevier will provide PatientKeeper access to Elsevier’s CPM interdisciplinary, evidence-based clinical practice guidelines, and Elsevier’s ClinicalKey, a new clinical insight engine which rapidly helps physicians find the most relevant information to answer complex clinical questions.
“PatientKeeper’s CPOE product combined with Elsevier’s clinical content and analytics offers a powerful combination for physicians who increasingly seek more robust clinical decision support tools to fit seamlessly into their existing workflow,” said Jay Katzen, Managing Director of CDS at Elsevier. “This is another example of how Elsevier is integrating its content and other resources with industry leading vendors like PatientKeeper to make healthcare more efficient and to improve outcomes overall.”
PatientKeeper CPOE and all of the PatientKeeper applications were designed to fit seamlessly into a physician’s existing workflow, so it is quickly and easily adopted by physicians. Physicians are able to accomplish all of the things they normally do throughout the day – pre-rounding, ordering, documenting, signing-out, charging, etc. – using a single, fully integrated system. PatientKeeper sits on top of the existing information systems in a healthcare community to provide physicians with a comprehensive view of all the clinical data on all their patients. Currently, more than 70 hospitals and health systems across the United States and Canada have purchased PatientKeeper CPOE to streamline the ordering process for physicians and drive meaningful physician use of a critical healthcare information technology.
PatientKeeper’s EHR optimization software solutions streamline clinician workflow, improve care team collaboration, and fill functional gaps in existing hospital EHR systems. With PatientKeeper as the “system of engagement” complementing the EHR, clinicians can easily access and act on all their patient information from PCs, smartphones and tablets. PatientKeeper has more than 70,000 active users today. For more information about PatientKeeper, visit www.patientkeeper.com or call (781) 373-6100.
