August 18, 2016 – The Health division of Wolters Kluwer, a leading global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, announced today the release of updates to its Sentri7® electronic surveillance solution, including the new technology for Direct CDA Automation of reporting to the CDC’s National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN).
Sentri7 is committed to streamlining the workflow of infection preventionists to minimize time spent on documenting and reporting events to NHSN, and maximize their time preventing infections. With the new Direct CDA Automation, Sentri7 users can now send all reporting documents to NHSN directly from within Sentri7 with just one click. This capability eliminates manual log-in and upload of documents to the NHSN portal, greatly improving efficiency and reducing the potential of clerical errors in submitting reports.
“The ability to send reports directly to NHSN through Sentri7 is a great time saver! With one click, I can send all of my reports straight to NHSN,” said Angela Loving, Infection Prevention Coordinator. “It has reduced the time I need to spend reporting to NHSN and frees up time to focus on other infection prevention responsibilities.”
Quote from David A. Del Toro, President & CEO of Clinical Software Solutions at Wolters Kluwer.
“Sentri7 is a web-based, real-time, decision support application that drives continuous improvement and empowers healthcare organizations to achieve excellence in care delivery. It supports multiple infection prevention responsibilities, including investigation of HAIs, isolation management, multi-drug resistant organism (MDRO) management and compliance with federal and state reporting requirements.”
