Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today that UpToDate's clinical knowledge system has been integrated with Sentri7 surveillance software by Pharmacy OneSource.
This partnership of evidence-based clinical information through UpToDate and clinical patient surveillance from Sentri7 offers healthcare providers actionable information at the point of care to make better decisions in directing patient care.
UpToDate synthesizes the most recent medical information into evidence-based, practical recommendations clinicians trust to make the right point-of-care decisions. UpToDate is the only clinical knowledge system associated with improved outcomes.
"Sentri7 offers real-time actionable patient information at the clinician's fingertips, including direct access to UpToDate's superior evidence-based topic reviews, the resource of choice for more than 600,000 physicians," said Arvind Subramanian, President and CEO, Wolters Kluwer Health Clinical Solutions. "By marrying Sentri7's leading edge technology and intuitive functionality with UpToDate's world-class medical content, Wolters Kluwer Health delivers what other surveillance solution providers cannot – real-time decision support backed by clinical knowledge to improve outcomes."
The integration of UpToDate into Sentri7 allows clinicians the opportunity to facilitate earlier, better, and more consistent interventions. This offers healthcare providers the ability to accelerate patient workflows, leading to shorter lengths of stay, lower costs, improved patient safety and reduced antibiotic resistance.
