A standard bi-directional interface to connect Clinicians with Labs and Radiology
One of the critical challenges faced by Physicians today, blame it on Meaningful Use requirement, is sending Lab Orders electronically. Few Physicians who have adopted Electronic Medical Records (EMR) find that they do not have an electronic lab ordering facility in their system. And for those who have, connecting their EMR system with disparate Lab Information Systems (LIS) for electronic transfer of orders require customized point-to-point interfaces for each systems, which mounts the challenge.
It’s not over yet. The interface development / implementation cost, effort, time and training costs not just eats into the budget but prolongs effective patient care.
Other perceptive issues include factors that determine routing of orders to different Labs such as Physician preference, insurance and specialty to name a few. The mapping of test codes, methodologies used among different lab providers adds to the concern.
ViSolve addresses this challenge with Lab Interoperability Module (LIM) - an interface engine, gateway and a clearing-house that enables seamless connectivity between Clinicians and Labs. LIM breaks the norm of building point-to-interfaces and provides a single bi-directional interface to connect all capable systems.
With LIM, routing orders to different labs would be as easy as clicking a button and receive results directly into the EMR for a complete patient profile. Beyond just EMR integration, track orders and exchange patient information in standardized format and access data from anywhere through portal and smart devices.
Key Benefits For Clinicians
1. Physician orders tests
Physician orders tests from his EMR, which LIM converts to HL7 standards, validates and electronically routes to labs.
2. Orders routed to respective labs, results returned to physicians EMR
Orders are routed to respective labs or imaging centers based physician preference or insurance rules. Results returned from the lab are automatically indexed with the patient profile in the physicians EMR.
3. Physician reviews results
Standardized tests results are available in the physicians EMR against respective patient’s record for review.
4. Physician shares results with team
For improved patient care, physician can securely forward lab results to other providers. Results can also be made available for patients through the patient portal.
