Wolters Kluwer Health, a Minneapolis-based provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, has signed an agreement with MEDITECH (Westwood, Mass.) to offer  clinical decision integration between MEDITECH version 5.64 (Client/Server and MAGIC) and Wolters’ ProVation Order Sets. Wolters Kluwer says this integration will enable hospitals to author order sets via the ProVation software, then make finished order sets available to physicians in MEDITECH's Physician Care Manager application through an automated process.

"The greatest benefits of the integration with our MEDITECH and ProVation Order Set systems are the direct linking to evidence from UpToDate and the timely updates to links and evidence,"  Pam Wetzel, M.D., CMIO, SwedishAmerican Hospital, said in a statement. "The overall effect is increased usability of both systems, and the assurance that our orders can be maintained based on a trusted and relevant source of evidence."
