Provation and the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care strive to improve colonoscopy documentation with new requirements and technology

Provation MD enables Australian practitioners’ seamless capture of the Colonoscopy Clinical Care Standard indicators for safe and appropriate colonoscopies.

Minneapolis, Minnesota, UNITED STATES

Minneapolis, MN and Sydney, Australia, July 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Provation announced today that its gastroenterology (GI) procedure documentation solution, Provation® MD, complies with the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care's effort to increase clinical accuracy and safety when documenting colonoscopy procedures.

Provation MD is a market-leading solution that is proven to improve operational and reporting efficiencies, procedure note accuracy, and overall physician and patient satisfaction. The solution allows endoscopists to efficiently and electronically create procedure notes to document all relevant procedure details and images. Provation MD currently serves over 150 Australian customers and is trusted by more than 80% of the top GI hospitals in the United States. Over 25 years, Provation’s international footprint has expanded from the United States, Australia, and New Zealand to the Middle East and Canada.

In January 2019, funded by the Australian Government Department of Health, the Commission developed the Colonoscopy Clinical Care Standard. The Standard includes nine quality statements and a set of four clinical indicators for proper colonoscopy procedure care. The indicators include 1) adequate bowel preparation, 2) thorough colon examination, 3) adenoma detection, and 4) the presence of sessile serrated adenomas or polyps.

The Colonoscopy Clinical Care Standard has been endorsed by ten key professional organisations and colleges including the Royal Australian College of Physicians (RACP), the Gastroenterological Society of Australia (GESA), the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS), and the Colorectal Surgical Society of Australia and New Zealand (CSSANZ). By reporting on the Commission’s indicators, Australian facilities can increase documentation standardisation for colonoscopies and improve quality patient care.

Now, Australian GI practitioners utilising Provation MD can easily report on the Colonoscopy Clinical Care Standard indicators. Provation MD’s Anticipatory Interface™ guides practitioners through an intuitive workflow navigation tree to offer appropriate selections for quick documentation, including fields for the Commission’s requirements. Provation MD also features image management to associate relevant procedure images and electronic medical record (EMR) integration.

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care’s purpose is to contribute to better health outcomes and experiences for all patients and consumers, and Provation’s purpose is to empower Providers to deliver quality health care for all. Both organisations are committed to ensuring practitioners have the best technology to document required data, so that patients can be accurately assessed and treated.
