As an important step towards its ultimate goal of improving the quality of care and support the frontline healthcare providers make better evidence-based decisions, Wolters Kluwer, a global provider of professional information, software solutions, and services, teamed up with Exist in the healthcare IT webinar entitled “How Reducing Variations is Key to Improving Patient Outcomes (and defeating COVID-19)“, held last August 13, 2020.
Exist Vice President for Sales & Marketing; Director of Healthcare Solutions Mr. Willex Perez and Partner Business Lead ASEAN Region at Wolters Kluwer Clinical Effectiveness Ms. Amanda Tay were the event speakers.
The following are among the key takeaways from the event:
- Reduce risks in treatment errors, and its Financial consequences
- Provide Consistency in Quality of Care
- Get the latest clinical evidence-based treatment
- Improve patient monitoring, safety, and reductions in adverse drug interactions
- Increase inpatient consultations and avoidance of unnecessary tests.
With the banner theme of providing the best evidence to make harmonized decisions, Ms. Tay presented valuable data from studies conducted by researchers all over the world, indicating the shortcomings in providing quality patient care, and prevalent medication errors occurring around the globe.
She elaborated on how healthcare solutions bring clinical effectiveness and improve the overall patient journey. Moreso, how their solutions, UpToDate and Lexicomp, are the top providers of world-class clinical decision support at the Point of Care.
She also highlighted that what sets them apart from other support systems is that these applications are backed by experts in the medical field performing continuous and updated reviews.
“These two build up a network of thousands of clinician experts, pharmacists, specialists, and more all actively contributing to the contents of the applications. They are the ones who will help you scour through all journals, and clinical studies to provide the synthesized and summarized content so that you don’t need to read every single resource,” she said.
Mr. Perez also expressed his appreciation for the event participants.
“We hope that this learning session has helped the frontline healthcare community understand that unwanted variability in care brings inefficiencies and provides negative impacts on the quality of care that the patient receives,” he stated.
“Also, we hope that we were able to show how extensive the coverage of UpToDate and Lexicomp is, and why it is preferred by clinicians all over the world for being an unbiased, evidence-based clinical decision support resource. The things that set it apart from other resources in the rigorous editorial process that is being updated constantly, the graded recommendations for diagnosis and treatments, clinical pathways and lab interpretations, and the wide range of access, including mobile devices.” Mr. Perez said as he ended the online event.
