Portland, OR (PRWEB) October 6, 2010
Ignis Systems, a leading provider of physician-centric solutions that integrate lab test services within a clinic's electronic medical record (EMR), announced today that Health e Practice Solutions is implementing the company's EMR-Link solution for all lab connectivity. Both companies are Portland-based.
Already operational at a number of clinics, Health e Practice Solutions uses EMR-Link to provide integrated lab orders management for all the practices it support with its hosted EMR system. In addition, the solution allows Health e Practice Solutions to electronically share test orders and results with Providence and other local/regional laboratory services. EMR-Link delivers EMR/lab connectivity that works like clinicians do, thereby eliminating errors, saving time and reducing costs for clinics and labs alike.
“EMR-Link does so much more for the clinic than any bi-directional lab interface that we’ve seen on the market today," explained Jill Arena, Managing Partner at Health e Practice Solutions. "The solution allows physicians to order labs electronically as a normal part of their visit workflow within the EMR, which takes a lot of extra steps out of the process for both the clinic and the lab and saves a great deal of time. We’re excited about offering this kind of automation, and our clients find that it pays for itself surprisingly quickly.”
EMR-Link provides unparalleled clinical workflow efficiency and reduces costs for clinics and labs alike by offering a universal order and result solution which connects clinics using any EMR with any lab vendor. Its simple, proven technology and rapid implementation methodology reduce the effort and risk involved in implementing electronic orders and results along with simplifying compliance with Federal requirements for EMR meaningful use and health information exchange (HIE) participation.
"Health e Practice Solutions is an outstanding addition to the local health IT community," remarked Ken Willett, CEO of Ignis Systems. “Portland has long been a leader in the development and adoption of EMR with more than its share of seasoned and knowledgeable experts. Jill and her team are definitely some of the best with whom we have worked.”
