Frost & Sullivan recognizes Wolters Kluwer as an “Innovation & Growth Leader” in Clinical Decision Support Systems

Provider of UpToDate, Lexicomp, Emmi, and Medi-Span ranks in the top two out of 20 vendors

Frost & Sullivan, a leading analyst firm, has named Wolters Kluwer Health as an Innovation & Growth Leader in the recent Frost Radar™ on Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS). A review of 20 vendors ranked Wolters Kluwer Health’s portfolio, which includes UpToDate®, as a leader in both categories among CDSS providers helping clinicians make the best medical care decisions.

Frost & Sullivan applauded Wolters Kluwer Health for its innovation, stating: “At the forefront of developing use cases to implement emerging technologies, including Generative AI, into its solutions, the company is considerate about the need to build trust within the end-user community about these technologies. It has launched AI Labs to bring AI developers and healthcare system leaders together to test early use cases of generative AI.”

Wolters Kluwer Health was also recognized for its growth including expanding the reach of its solutions into adjacent market segments such as commercial payers, life sciences and retail health and to a wider set of users including nurses and physician assistants by “offering user-centric packages so that all decision-makers have access to important clinical information.”

Dr. Rishi Pathak, Global Director Healthcare & Life Sciences at Frost & Sullivan, noted: “The Frost Radar on CDSS was an exhaustive review of the vendors in this category. Wolters Kluwer Health showed leadership not only in its product vision but in innovation with its newer solutions using Generative AI and analytics dashboards. Demand for CDSS will continually increase as healthcare organizations progress along their data-driven transformation journey and look to reduce both omission and commission errors (that cost healthcare systems about $20 billion per year) while accessing updated content and guidelines to make personalized/patient-centric decisions.”
