Medicat chooses Wolters Kluwer clinical content and terminology management

The Health division of Wolters Kluwer, a leading global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry is pleased to announce that Medicat has chosen its suite of clinical content and terminology management solutions to enhance functionality in its Patient Health Management offering. Specifically, the comprehensive health solution for colleges and universities will now feature the Workflow Enhancing Search offering from Health Language® and the Integrated Patient Education solution.

Through the Integrated Patient Education solution, providers using Medicat gain access to more than 6,000 education leaflets in up to 19 languages to share with patients. Developed using the background and deep industry experience of Wolters Kluwer with trusted clinical content from UpToDate®, the Integrated Patient Education solution provides the latest information and industry evidence on over 3,100 adult and pediatric medications and more than 3,500 diseases, conditions, natural products, discharge instructions, and healthy living topics.

The Health Language Enterprise Terminology Platform enhances search functionality, enabling providers using Medicat to look up and record problems and diagnoses through a comprehensive library of commonly used synonyms. Familiar terms are then mapped to industry terminology standards, such as ICD-10 and SNOMED CT ®, effectively resolving the disconnect between billing and administrative standards, Meaningful Use requirements, and the clinician’s preferred way of documenting clinical care.

“Extending the value of EHR investments is critical in today’s quality driven climate, and Wolters Kluwer terminology management solutions and integrated patient education tools provide leading functionality designed to equip EHR vendors with sustainable platforms,” said David A. Del Toro, President & CEO of Clinical Software Solutions at Wolters Kluwer. “We are pleased to partner with a leading EHR solution like Medicat and believe it is a testament of our continued commitment to arm healthcare organizations with comprehensive content and clinical knowledge that drives improved care quality, patient safety and clinical productivity.”
