Extract Systems, a leading provider of healthcare connectivity solutions, is pleased to announce Health Network Laboratories has deployed LabDE to provide enhanced patient reporting to non-interfaced clients as well as interfaced clients with electronic lab results delivered directly to their EHR.
A recognized leader in diagnostic lab medicine, Health Network Laboratories offers the highest-quality leading-edge lab testing, including highly specialized esoteric testing to hospitals, physicians, long-term and assisted living facilities, businesses, and government agencies. By adding LabDE to its workflow, HNL can deliver structured, actionable data to customers that previously received a scanned copy of lab results. This connectivity addresses physicians’ concerns for efficiency and produces comprehensive electronic records to preserve each patient’s clinical story.
“Implementing LabDE is aligned with our commitment to provide responsive service to clients and patients,” said Ray Stein, Manager of Lab Applications, Health Network Laboratories. “Providing access to structured clinical data in the EHR improves healthcare quality, reduces medical errors and lowers costs.”
“We are pleased to work with Health Network Laboratories to enable efficient delivery of structured lab results for interfaced customers and a unified patient report for non-interfaced customers,” said David Rasmussen, president, Extract Systems. “Clinicians need quick access to critical patient data to improve patient care and minimize the chance of duplicative tests and therapies. Enhanced connectivity among healthcare organizations also contributes to better operational efficiencies and streamlined workflow.”
Within the HNL workflow, LabDE is integrated with Sunquest Laboratory™ which enables electronic results to be sent directly to each customer’s EHR. LabDE automatically applies a standard naming convention that includes patient name and member number for easy retrieval and archives documents in Xerox DocuShare.
