Essentia Health Selects ProVation MD Documentation and Coding Software for Gastroenterology and Pulmonary Services

MINNEAPOLIS, MN — June 27, 2012 — Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today that Essentia Health has successfully implemented its ProVation® Medical Software to enhance workflow efficiencies and quality of care within its gastroenterology and pulmonary services. This deployment marks a significant milestone – the 1,000th implementation of the specialized documentation and coding solution.

ProVation MD was first implemented in 1996 at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, and the company has experienced steady year-over-year growth since then. Ranked number one in the Best in KLAS awards for six consecutive years, ProVation MD is now deployed in four countries and has been expanded to cover 13 medical specialties.

"Implementation of ProVation MD has been well received by Essentia’s physicians and patients alike,” said Dr. Robert Erickson, a gastroenterologist at Essentia Health. “Its intuitive design helps us document more efficiently at the point of care, and key features such as image-enhanced, personalized reports engage patients more actively in the process. Equally important, its robust reporting capabilities allow us to consistently review our performance internally and against our peers.”

Essentia Health is an integrated health system covering large and small communities across Minnesota, North Dakota, Wisconsin and Idaho. The organization encompasses 750 physicians, 11,500 employees and a wide range of medical specialties. ProVation Medical was implemented within Essentia’s St. Mary’s system, including the 343-bed St. Mary’s Medical Center and St. Mary’s Duluth Clinic in Duluth, and the 25-bed St. Mary’s Hospital in Superior, Wis.

“Achieving this significant milestone of 1,000 customers live with ProVation MD affirms the superiority of ProVation software in helping healthcare organizations raise the bar on quality while driving down costs,” said Mike Haldane, Vice President and General Manager, Clinical Documentation, Wolters Kluwer Health Clinical Solutions. “We are pleased to have Essentia Health join our growing customer base and share in this notable achievement.”
