Ovid Synthesis solution simplifies evidence-based clinical research

Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center (HPMC) and Norfolk, VA-based Sentara Healthcare are implementing Wolters Kluwer Health’s Ovid Synthesis Clinical Evidence Manager solution to support evidence-based clinical research initiatives.

The cloud-based workflow tool will specifically support HPMC’s Shared Governance Program and Sentara’s Healthcare Vizient/AACN Nurse Residency Program.

Wolters Kluwer Health provides clinical technology and evidence-based solutions that engage clinicians, patients, researchers and students in effective decision-making and outcomes across healthcare.

The division of Wolters Kluwer supports clinical effectiveness, learning and research, clinical surveillance and compliance – as well as data solutions.

Launched in 2022, Ovid Synthesis Clinical Evidence Manager, increases the efficiency of the entire clinical research process, from streamlining literature review and evidence appraisal with AI to increasing collaboration between departments and facilitating decisions about dissemination.

“Sentara has used Ovid for years to help our clinicians with research,” said Suzanne Duncan, MSLS, Director of Library Services, Sentara Healthcare. “We have now added Ovid Synthesis Clinical Evidence Manager to assist with all our clinical research and tracking, as well as compliance for Magnet recognition and renewal. Based on our experience, we anticipate productive research support from this new product.”

Complementing Ovid’s premium medical content, Ovid Synthesis Clinical Evidence Manager offers easy-to-use tools to empower clinical students and experienced professionals with varying levels of research experience to carry out projects. Standardized workflows with configurable templates create a structured and supportive environment that helps all projects adhere to best practice.

At HPMC, Shared Governance is collaboration between caregivers and leadership to improve patient care, streamline the work environment and ensure the most accurate, up-to-date information is available to the care teams.

Lourdes Casao, Director of the Education Department for CHA at HPMC, said: “We are investing in Ovid across our content and technology-based workflows, to support the education department as well as assisting in the rollout of Shared Governance throughout the medical center. “

In addition to critical workflow tools, Ovid Synthesis Clinical Evidence Manager offers executive and project-level dashboards for real-time visibility into research and evidence practice across an organization.

Hospitals, health systems and educational institutions can now track ongoing research to avoid project duplication and ensure the resulting clinical practice improvements are based on the latest medical evidence and can be implemented into practice efficiently.

In addition to Sentara and HPMC, the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) and other institutions have also started to leverage Ovid Synthesis Clinical Evidence Manager to expedite dissemination of critical information across organizations.

“Healthcare organizations are under pressure to improve clinical quality with increasingly limited resources, making standardized research tools that shorten the cycle between the identification of clinical problems and the execution of evidence-based solutions business-critical,” said Vikram Savkar, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Medicine Segment, Health Learning, Research and Practice business, Wolters Kluwer Health. “We’re proud to offer leading organizations, such as HPMC, UAB and Sentara Healthcare, the tools they need to make good on their commitments to optimizing care quality.”
