ProVation Care Plans, powered by Lippincott's Nursing Solutions offers evidence-based care plans developed by the expert Lippincott’s Nursing Solutions team and its network of hundreds of practicing clinicians.

ProVation Care Plans supports the care plan customization process, utilizing a full suite of embedded links to online, evidence-based practice content from Lippincott’s Nursing Solutions.
Created in partnership with Lippincott's Nursing Solutions, the leading international provider of online evidence-based practice workflow products, customers can customize care plan templates and then import them into their electronic medical record (EMR) system for clinicians to use as a basis for care. When combined with full access to the Lippincott’s Nursing Solutions product suite, clinicians can, at the point of care through their EMR, directly access both care plan information and all accompanying evidence-based content needed to effectively manage care. The total solution provides the latest evidence-based practice at the bedside, which supports the providers’ need to improve their performance measures and quality indicators, helping health systems better manage patient care.
