August 19, 2008 - Thomson Reuters said 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 reportedly provides evidence-based order sets with more than 900 titles for 280 medical conditions. For hospitals, the enhanced Order Set Solution is designed to 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 reportedly 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.
