Streamline EHR-LIS Connectivity, Expand Electronic Ordering and Reporting Support, Increase Competitive Differentiation

The Challenge: Reducing EHR Integration Cost and Complexity

Reference labs are implementing electronic ordering and reporting processes to accelerate the pace of business and avoid communications errors and reporting mix ups. By digitizing lab orders you can speed up workflows, improve visibility, and ensure specimens and results are always tied to the right patients.

Digital ordering and reporting can help your company gain a competitive advantage and increase market share by eliminating manually intensive and time-consuming paper-based processes and providing faster results. But accepting lab orders and reporting test results electronically—seamlessly exchanging data between your clients’ electronic health record (EHR) systems and your laboratory information system (LIS)—is no easy matter.

Each client has a unique EHR system with distinct APIs and data formats. Connecting disparate EHR systems to an LIS solution, and unifying patient records can be a costly, complex, and drawn-out undertaking that diverts valuable technical staff from other important business activities.

Most labs lack the resources and budget to connect to each and every client EHR system individually. As a result, many reference labs only integrate with their largest clients and fail to realize the full potential of digital transformation.
