Thomson Reuters Expands its Order Set Solution with Document Management System from HealthGate


Web-based Tool Makes It Easy for Hospital Staffs to Collaborate on the Management of Clinical Order Sets

Ann Arbor, MI .—Thomson Reuters announced today that it is working with HealthGate Data Corp on a next generation document lifecycle management application to enhance its Order Set Solution.

The Thomson Reuters solution provides evidence-based order sets with more than 900 titles for 280 medical conditions. For hospitals, the enhanced Order Set Solution will streamline and accelerate order set management and governance – the creation, review, management and updating of clinical order set content. Hospitals can use the enhanced solution to tailor evidence-based order set content to their own institutional protocols.

The new enhanced solution adds capabilities for managing Thomson Reuters Order Set content as well as common document types. By providing versioning controls, alerts, collaboration, and review tools, the enhanced solution will streamline the governance, control, and updating processes necessary for effective order set use, simplifying the management of reviewer feedback and the incorporation of clinical changes, greatly reducing the time and effort required for effective order set management.

“This offering combines the strength of two outstanding products to give hospitals a flexible, intuitive order set management tool,” said Thomas Hegelund, executive vice president of the Healthcare business of Thomson Reuters. “We chose HealthGate for its superior document lifecycle management technology and experience with hospitals and healthcare systems.”

Thomson Reuters provides more than 3,000 U.S. hospitals with clinical and management decision support solutions.

“Streamlining the process of interdisciplinary committee work, improving workflow, and enhancing asynchronous collaboration is paramount in the effective management and implementation of evidence-based order sets in hospitals,” said Bill Reece, HealthGate’s CEO. “This partnership brings unparalleled collaboration and content management technology together with outstanding evidence-based content to the hospital market.”
