Elsevier Aligns Solutions to Empower Meaningful Care

Integrated clinical solutions from Elsevier, including new order sets, work to help healthcare providers achieve clinical, operational and financial excellence

Philadelphia, PA, February 28, 2013 – Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, has aligned its clinical decision support (CDS) and clinical reference solutions to help healthcare providers and payers achieve clinical, operational and financial excellence.

The latest example of this alignment is InOrder by Elsevier, an intuitive, cloud-based order set solution that enables clinicians to author, review and publish orders in a collaborative environment that quickly translates evidence-based knowledge into better patient care. By combining Elsevier's deep experience in providing evidence-based content and the capability to make updates rapidly as regulations and medications change, InOrder can help hospitals and clinicians increase patient safety and prevent medical errors.

“From analytics and reporting to evidence-based clinical information delivery, clinical practice transformation and patient education, Elsevier empowers meaningful care by providing a patient-centered approach to helping organizations achieve clinical, operational and financial excellence,” said Jay Katzen, President of Elsevier’s clinical solutions business. “As the healthcare industry continues to evolve, we are working hard to make it easier for providers and payers to achieve their best performance.”

Elsevier will demonstrate its integrated solutions at its booth (#6129) at the Healthcare Information Management and Systems Society (HIMSS13) annual meeting in New Orleans, March 4-6. Using a patient-centered approach, Elsevier has aligned an integrated suite of capabilities for healthcare providers unmatched in the industry:

  • Analytics & Reporting
