Minneapolis-based Wolters Kluwer Health, a global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today that Baptist Hospital East in Louisville, Ky. will deploy its ProVation MD software for cardiology procedure documentation and coding in its cardiac catheterization labs.
ProVation MD software for procedure documentation and coding compliance replaces dictation/transcription and streamlines the coding and billing process. Unlike cardiovascular information systems (CVIS), which collect patient measurements and administrative data, ProVation MD lets clinicians quickly and completely document medical procedures at the point of care, and then applies the appropriate reimbursement codes to drive compliance and revenue recovery. ProVation MD interfaces with cardiovascular nursing, imaging and measurement systems to complete the electronic documentation process and free busy cardiologists and technologists from time-consuming dictation.
The 519-bed Baptist Hospital East is a member of the Baptist Healthcare System, one of Kentucky’s largest not-for-profit healthcare providers. Nationally recognized for its quality of care, the hospital recently was named one of the nation’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals by Thomson Reuters and achieved Magnet designation for excellence in nursing services by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program®. Baptist East also was named Best Hospital in the 2010 Best of Louisville® awards and has been honored as one of the top 20 Best Places to Work in Kentucky for six years in a row by the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management and the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.
