A standard bi-directional interface to connect Labs and Radiology with disparate EHR/EMR systems
LAB Interoperability Module from ViSolve is an integration platform that enables Labs and Imaging Centers to receive orders electronically from multiple physicians using different EMR systems with the help of a single bi-directional interface.
As 70% of the clinical decisions are based on lab tests, interfacing labs with EMR systems is a pre-requisite to establish connectivity with healthcare providers to improve workflow, productivity and quality of care. Physicians are also required to send orders electronically as part of Meaningful Use requirement and receive test results directly in their EMR systems.
The major challenge faced by Laboratories and Imaging Centers is interfacing. As hundreds of certified EMR systems are available in the market interfacing with them is not only cumbersome, expensive and efforts intensive but can even pressure small labs out of business.
ViSolve, in an effort to address this challenge and to be a part of building a better health system, developed the Lab Interoperability Module (LIM) -a standardized interface engine, gateway and a clearing-house that enables seamless connectivity between Labs and Clinicians. LIM breaks the norm of building point-to-interfaces and provides a single bi-directional interface to connect all capable systems to exchange patient information.
It improves workflow and productivity by virtually eliminating test code errors, electronically routing back results to respective physicians, and helping track rejections and order status. LAB Interoperability Module can bring down effort and cost considerably by eliminating multiple interfaces required to connect disparate EMR systems.
Key Benefits For Labs and Radiology
1. Physician orders tests
Physician orders tests from his EMR, which LIM converts to HL7 standards, validates, and electronically and securely routes to labs and imaging centers.
2. Orders routed to respective labs, results returned to physicians EMR
Orders are routed to respective labs or imaging centers based on physician preference or insurance rules. Results returned from labs or imaging centers are directly available in the physician's EMR.
3. Physician reviews results
