Elsevier Integrates its Clinical Decision Support Solutions Into PatientKeeper CPOE

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. 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.

"We specialize in making sure that our software enables physicians to deliver better care, by providing them with technology that matches the way they practice and most importantly, software that saves them time and helps them practice more effectively," said Paul Brient, President and CEO of PatientKeeper. "Our physician users count on us to give them the fastest and easiest way to pull actionable content into their workflow through PatientKeeper CPOE. The historical approach to CPOE and Clinical Decision Support often inundates physicians with a high percentage of irrelevant or non-actionable alerts. We're delighted to collaborate with Elsevier, whose content is unmatched and who shares our goal of creating a streamlined, physician friendly environment."

Under ARRA and the HITECH Act, hospitals and physicians are required to achieve high levels of physician adoption of technology including CPOE. PatientKeeper and Elsevier believe that collaborating to provide additional content and tools within PatientKeeper's physician-friendly CPOE application will lead to high levels of sustained adoption and, most importantly, a happy, more effective physician community.
