Adena Health System Selects ProVation Software for Cardiology Procedure Documentation and Coding Compliance


Minneapolis, MN – Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today that Adena Health System has selected ProVation® MD software for Cardiology procedure documentation and coding. Adena health system, which currently uses ProVation MD for Gastroenterology and Pulmonary procedures, will use the software to document Diagnostic, Interventional and Peripheral Vascular cases at its Adena Regional Medical Center catheterization lab in Chillicothe, OH.

ProVation® MD software for procedure documentation and coding compliance replaces dictation/transcription and streamlines the coding and billing process. Unlike Cardiovascular Information Systems (CVIS), which collect patient measurements and administrative data, ProVation MD allows clinicians to quickly and completely document medical procedures at the point of care, then applies the appropriate reimbursement codes to drive compliance and revenue recovery. ProVation MD interfaces with cardiovascular nursing, imaging and measurement systems to complete the electronic documentation process and free busy cardiologists and technologists from time-consuming dictation.

Established in 1895, Adena Regional Medical Center is a 237-bed, full-service, multi-specialty facility serving more than 500,000 people in South Central Ohio. A fully accredited regional health care facility, Adena Regional Medical Center serves as a clinical site for students in a diverse range of educational programs including General Internal Medicine, nursing, medical technology, radiographic technology, respiratory therapy, and physical therapy.

“We’ve put as much time and effort into providing state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization procedures as open-heart surgery,” said Marcus Bost, CIO, Adena Health System. “In addition to leading-edge clinical care, we’re also dedicated to using the best IT solutions to streamline the practice of cardiothoracic medicine and patient documentation.”

“ProVation software will be an integral part of our financial strategy, as it allows us to eliminate transcription costs and recover revenue,” he continued. “Its value also comes in speeding the completion and availability of electronic patient records, which will now be accessible to other caregivers and referring physicians immediately after the procedure.”
“Adena Health System joins a growing percentage of our 600+ client base that are choosing to expand the use of ProVation software to additional medical specialties and facilities,” said Arvind Subramanian, CEO, Wolters Kluwer Health Clinical Solutions and ProVation Medical. “We are pleased that their positive experience with ProVation in the GI and bronchoscopy labs has led them to select it for the cath lab as well.”
