Oconee Medical Center (Seneca, S.C.) is deploying Amsterdam-headquartered

Wolters Kluwer Health’s ProVation Order Sets to automate the creation and maintenance of evidence-based order sets throughout the organization.

ProVation Order Sets, powered by UpToDate Decision Support, is a customizable order set authoring and management solution that provides integration into clinical processes to streamline the delivery of standardized care for improved patient safety, outcomes, clinician performance and regulatory compliance, the company says. UpToDate covers more than 7,700 topics in 15 medical specialties and includes more than 80,000 pages of text and graphics, as well as links to Medline abstracts, more than 260,000 references and a drug database, it touts.

The 160-bed Oconee Medical Center is a not-for-profit organization staffed by approximately 125 physicians representing 25 specialties. It is one of only three hospitals in South Carolina operating an emergency medical service.
