Monroe, MI (PRWEB) February 15, 2006
Hilgraeve, Inc., a long-time leader in connecting uncooperative systems, announced recently that ChildLab Reference Laboratory, part of Columbus Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, has installed the company’s Patient Data Extraction system, HyperSend PDX.
To properly process the tests requested by physicians, clinical laboratories such as ChildLab need accurate and timely patient demographic information. By installing HyperSend PDX, ChildLab now has a reliable and secure electronic health information exchange between its outreach clients and physician customers. HyperSend PDX allows ChildLab to save time and reduce costs through cleaner requisitions, reduced keying errors and increased throughput.
“Everybody in our organization that has used HyperSend PDX has been very pleased with how the software puts valuable EHR information into our existing system,” remarked Lisa Littleton, Senior Systems Analyst for ChildLab. “The software was implemented quickly and required very little training, and the customer service provided by Hilgraeve has been exceptional.”
HyperSend PDX is the foundation for the private healthcare information networks Hilgraeve builds and maintains. Hilgraeve emerged as a cutting edge company and its product, HyperSend, as a leading, secure electronic data transmission technology, in part as the result of HIPAA. HyperSend PDX is a powerful extension of the company’s HyperSend technology.
“Physician practice management systems are the primary repository for patient data in this country. The Federal government has a 10 year goal to provide easy access to that data, which they project will reduce national healthcare costs by 10 percent,” explained Jeff Beamsley, president of Hilgraeve, Inc. “Hilgraeve is solving the key interface part of that problem for our customers today. Industry innovators like Clinical Pathology Associates have partnered with us to create their own secure healthcare information network and are enjoying the immediate benefits of reduced costs and improved service.”
