Elsevier CPM Resource Center to Integrate Evidence-Based Clinical Content Software at Providence Health & Services
CPM and Providence Health & Services collaboration aims to improve overall interdisciplinary care and transform patient care culture
GRAND RAPIDS, MI – July 19, 2011 – Elsevier / CPM Resource Center (CPM), a leader in developing clinical decision support tools for healthcare, announced today a contract with Providence Health & Services, a not-for-profit health system committed to providing services to communities across five states - Alaska, California, Montana, Oregon and Washington - to provide evidence-based clinical content software.
Providence Health & Services selected CPM as the vendor of choice for evidence-based interdisciplinary professional practice workflow support, including clinical documentation, care planning and clinical practice guidelines for nurses and interdisciplinary clinicians in order to improve overall patient care and patient experience. CPM’s evidence-based content seamlessly interfaces with health information technology platforms.
Providence Health & Services plans to validate and begin using the CPM clinical content this year to support clinical scholarship within their organization. CPM’s products will be delivered within Providence Health & Services’ future acute care EHR (Electronic Health Record) system, which will begin rolling out in 2012. The organization’s Clinical Practice Transformation Team (CPTT) will engage in reviewing and validating the interdisciplinary content for use in an acute care setting, and consultants from CPM’s Transformation Services team will also work with the teams to create consistent practice adoption throughout all areas.
The adoption of CPM’s products will help Providence Health & Services to further achieve its organization’s goals, including maintaining the highest clinical standards possible, reducing variation in care delivery and empowering clinicians to practice with the best point-of-care resources. Additionally, the combination of the EHR platform and CPM’s product will also support Providence Health & Services’ acute care ministries to achieve advances in care in order to achieve nursing excellence.
With more than 25 years of experience, CPM embraces the concept of providing a culture and professional practice framework that consists of evidence-based clinical care solutions to assist in the practice transformation of hospitals. Essentially, solutions are offered to not only help standardize care across the continuum but provide superior support to point-of-care providers throughout the transition to ensure seamless adoption by the interdisciplinary team and that appropriate systems are in place to meet the goals and objectives of the facility.
