John Wiley implements PatientKeeper Reference Library at point of care

PatientKeeper : 15 August, 2007  (New Product)
PatientKeeper and global publisher John Wiley have announced that physicians and other healthcare professionals using PatientKeeper will now be able to consult InfoPOEMs evidence-based content in the context of specific patients’ information.
Wiley is the latest company to use PatientKeeper Reference Library to extend its content to the point of care and point of decision. Reference Library links patient-specific clinical information – such as medication lists, diagnoses and lab results – to the wealth of clinical knowledge available through third parties.

“Quick access to evidence-based medicine is changing the way doctors practice medicine,” said Paul Cunningham, MD, internist, Houston, Texas, USA. “PatientKeeper and Wiley are making it easy to access evidence-based medical references in the context of the latest patient information, helping doctors make the best patient care decisions.”

Wiley announced its acquisition of InfoPOEM, a leading provider of evidence-based medical content and web-based search tools, in October 2005. The flagship services of InfoPOEMs – Daily POEMs and InfoRetriever – form the basis of a medical information management system that improves patient care and increases clinical efficiency.

POEM is an acronym for ‘Patient-Oriented Evidence that Matters’. POEMs are daily email summaries of medical research filtered from over 100 leading peer-reviewed journals and graded for validity and relevance to patient outcomes. Approximately one in 40 eligible studies is converted into a POEM and each POEM is reviewed by at least 15 physicians and/or physician editors prior to publication.

InfoRetriever searches a full spectrum of evidence-based content and tools: all POEMs and Cochrane Systematic Review abstracts, more than 200 decision support tools, more than 2,200 diagnostic calculators supporting selection and interpretation of diagnostic tests, and more than 700 summaries of evidence-based practice guidelines.

“This partnership will allow thousands of clinicians to access the best medical evidence, filtered for relevance and coupled with powerful clinical support tools, to make decision-making quick and practical at the point of care,” said Shawn Morton, vice president and publishing director, medicine at Wiley. “We are thrilled to join with PatientKeeper to better serve the information needs of physicians practicing evidence-based medicine.”

Only PatientKeeper is designed to support a physician throughout the entire day, across all settings of care. PatientKeeper’s applications allow physicians to access their patients’ electronic records, write prescriptions, enter charges for services, document patient encounters, and securely send messages to other caregivers – all in a single, integrated environment.

PatientKeeper is an integral part of the strategies of organizations across the healthcare continuum – ranging from small physician practices to community hospitals to major academic medical centers to some of the largest health systems in the country. PatientKeeper’s customer base now includes over 100 organizations, representing over 300 hospitals.

'An increasing number of physicians are using evidence-based medicine tools to help make care decisions,” said Jennifer Sun, MD, clinical product manager at PatientKeeper. “This partnership with Wiley allows PatientKeeper to offer healthcare professionals immediate access to decision support tools within the context of the patients they care for.”
