PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania and WALTHAM, Massachusetts, February 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
New collaboration delivers Elsevier's evidence-based clinical decision support content and analytics tools into the physician workflow through PatientKeeper CPOE™
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.
