Many laboratories do not have the resources to manage their day to day IT needs, let alone take on additional outside projects such as EMR interfacing. This interfacing process presents many challenges in dealing with connectivity and the various formats of the different EMR vendors? Many vendors require encounter numbers, order numbers and sub-indexes returned with the laboratory results, and without this information your lab can not accept an order message. Roxiticus Health IT is able to solve these (and many other issues) by providing the needed outside resources to setup the interface to accept the order message from the EMR vendor and normalizes the data within the laboratory’s dedicated Lifepoint database. A key component of this process is knowing which fields are critical to both the lab and the EMR vendor. This data normalization includes order code, physician, insurance, AAOE, and other components that are translated to standard lab values. Once the order has been “normalized and stored” it can be sent in the format the laboratory needs to receive the lab order in HL7, FHIR, API or another format. On the result side, the EMR will receive a normalized result message with the format and required fields to make a successful completed order. This process will also include add on orders, reflex tests and discreet textual results. This process can be difficult but with the right Professional IT expertise it becomes seamless for the lab and the EMR vendor.
