Minneapolis, MN (January 16, 2013) — Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today that Centra Health has selected its ProVation® Medical software for cardiology procedure documentation and coding in its cardiac catheterization labs.
ProVation software replaces dictation/transcription and streamlines the coding and billing process. Unlike cardiovascular information systems (CVIS), which collect patient measurements and administrative data, ProVation MD for Cardiology lets clinicians quickly and completely document medical procedures at the point of care, and then applies the appropriate reimbursement codes to drive compliance and revenue recovery. It interfaces with cardiovascular nursing, imaging and measurement systems to complete the electronic documentation process and free busy cardiologists and technologists from time-consuming dictation.
Located in Lynchburg, Va., Centra is a nonprofit regional healthcare system providing comprehensive, state-of-the-art health services to the residents of central and southwest Virginia through three acute care hospitals, Lynchburg General, Virginia Baptist and Southside Community. Centra also includes residential and outpatient mental health facilities, home health and hospice programs, and mammography, sleep disorders, wound care and hyperbaric medicine centers. It was ranked as one of the safest hospitals in the country, placing the organization in the top 5 percent of hospitals nationwide for low complication and mortality rates. It has also been recognized by Hospitals & Health Networks as one of the country’s Most Wired and Most Wireless hospitals.
“Centra Health is clearly dedicated to providing the highest quality care, as evidenced by their many awards and achievements,” said Mike Haldane, Vice President and General Manager, Clinical Documentation, Wolters Kluwer Health Clinical Solutions. “We are pleased that they have chosen ProVation MD for Cardiology to further this mission and provide streamlined documentation and coding in their cath labs.”
