ProVation Order Sets, powered by UpToDate Decision Support, is a customizable order set authoring and management solution that provides flexible integration into clinical processes to streamline the delivery of standardized care for improved patient safety, outcomes, clinician performance and regulatory compliance.

The ProVation Order Sets One-Click Updates feature leverages UpToDate’s Practice Changing Updates to highlight new recommendations that could potentially change usual clinical practice. Enabled by a unique, structured approach to data management, One-Click Updates alerts end users to evidence that may trigger the need to modify particular order sets. It then enables users to review recommended updates and apply them in a single step across multiple order sets.
