PatientKeeper, Wiley ink content deal
PatientKeeper Inc. and publisher John Wiley & Sons Inc. have inked a deal that will allow physicians and other healthcare professionals using PatientKeeper to have access to Wiley’s InfoPOEMs evidence-based information in the context of specific patients’ information. Wiley uses PatientKeeper Reference Library to extend its content to the point of care and where decisions are made. Patient-specific clinical information includes medication lists, diagnoses, lab results, etc., as well as clinical knowledge available through third parties.
Wiley acquired InfoPOEM Inc., a 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, the company said.
POEM is an acronym for “Patient-Oriented Evidence that Matters.” POEMs are daily e-mail summaries of medical research filtered from over 100 leading peer-reviewed journals and graded for validity and relevance to patient outcomes.
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.
