Kona Surgery Center has selected iProVation MD software from Minneapolis-based Wolters Kluwer Health for procedure documentation and coding, and its ProVation EHR electronic health record and patient charting solution.

ProVation EHR is an electronic health record designed for ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs). It offers electronic documentation and document imaging for all elements of the patient encounter, from past records to procedure documentation to follow-up care, says the company.

Kona Surgery Center, a partnership between Hawaii Pacific Health and several West Hawaii physicians, started taking patients in late January, after receiving its state license Jan. 21. Kona ASC is a state-of-the-art, 3-suite multi-specialty surgery center focused on gastroenterology, podiatry, general surgery, plastic surgery, orthopedics, dental surgery and ophthalmology.
