The Indianapolis, Ind.-based Wolters Kluwer Health's unit Lippincott Williams & Wilkins (LWW) announced the acquisition of iCare LLC (Knoxville, Tenn.), makers of iCare EMR, an educational Electronic Medical Record (EMR) software program. iCare EMR integrates a simulated electronic medical record into a learning tool for students to prepare future nurses for the demands of the evolving healthcare climate in the 21st century. The deal allows Wolters Kluwer Health to broaden its market-leading portfolio of EMR documentation and simulation support tools for nursing students, instructors and professionals.

The iCare EMR learning tool trains nursing students to manage the complex challenges of documenting care, patient safety, compliance and hospital efficiency. Designed to mirror the functionality of commercially available EMRs, iCare allows students to learn about EMR systems within the framework of their current educational curriculum both in the classroom and simulation environments.

Nursing students can record and retrieve data pertinent to "care," such as physical assessments, vital signs and medication administration. Within the simulation education environment, nursing students can electronically document their "care" and then have that record available to them in all phases of the nursing curriculum. Nursing faculty can also build their own patient-care scenarios and evaluate students on documentation of physical assessments as well as general EMR documentation skills.
