University of Kentucky Selects Elsevier’s InOrder

Multidisciplinary health system to utilize evidence-based, collaborative order sets solution

Philadelphia, PA, October 28, 2014

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announced today that University of Kentucky's UK HealthCare (UKHC), a health system with more than 80 specialized clinics throughout the state, has selected Elsevier's InOrder for its order sets solution. The cloud-based InOrder enables clinicians, physicians and informaticists to author, review and publish orders in a collaborative environment that quickly translates evidence-based knowledge into better patient care.

"InOrder simplifies and streamlines the creation, management and maintenance of order sets, allowing our physicians to offer the best care possible," said Dr. Carol Steltenkamp, UKHC's Chief Medical Information Officer. "Our decision to deploy InOrder was based on Elsevier's extensive medical literature resources, including its high-quality, evidence-based content. We believe those attributes, plus InOrder's intuitive platform, will help our clinicians improve clinician workflow and support our patient care efforts."

InOrder's capabilities enable hospitals and clinicians to increase patient safety and prevent medical errors with features that provide:

  • Availability across technology platforms enabled by a cloud-based delivery model
  • Advanced collaboration tools for order set development, maintenance, access and tracking
  • Tailored, concise ordering focused on the most common scenarios
  • Localization tools to incorporate hospitals' clinical terminologies and import existing order sets
  • Access to relevant evidence-based answers from ClinicalKey, Elsevier's clinical insight engine
  • Enhanced clinical guidance and evidence within the set
  • Quality metric indicators that highlight orders important for guidelines and metrics
  • Bi-directional EHR integration that allows for rapid development, deployment and maintenance of order sets.

UKHC was one of InOrder's first beta clients when the product launched in 2013.

"Our customers were and continue to be instrumental in the development of InOrder. Close collaboration with UKHC clinicians and a deep understanding of how they think, work and use order sets optimized the design and flow of the solution," said Dr. Jonathan Teich, Chief Medical Informatics Officer, Elsevier Clinical Solutions. "We're proud of UKHC's confidence in InOrder and how its medical staff have integrated it into their daily workflow."

InOrder adapts to any healthcare organization, allowing the import of existing order sets, and helps clinicians author order sets based on a hospital's specific terminology and order items. InOrder's tailored services for customers includes implementation teams led by clinicians and informaticists with deep knowledge of the order set space and is supported by experts in software deployment.
