Portland, OR (PRWEB) December 16, 2011
Responding to recent Federal guidelines that raise the need for easy-to-read patient lab reports, Ignis Systems released EMR-Link ResultsAnywhere this week.
As a result of the Office of the National Coordinator’s recent guidance allowing patients to request their lab reports, lab managers are under greater pressure to provide lab results in a patient-friendly format. ResultsAnywhere works with Ignis System’s EMR-Link lab outreach solution to create and securely transmit lab results that are clear and easy for patients to understand, with highlighted abnormal values and informative provider annotations. ResultsAnywhere leverages technology from Kryptiq, an industry leader in activating healthcare through connectivity solutions such as secure messaging and patient portals, to securely transmit lab reports to patients and other members of the care team.
Dr. Tom Landholt of Patient Care Family Clinic in Springfield MO says, "Great medical software does three things for a medical clinic: enhances the presentation of data, lowers costs and increases clinical efficiency. ResultsAnywhere Plus accomplishes these not only for the clinic, but provides the same benefits for the patient. A truly remarkable enhancement for provider-patient communication."
Says Ken Willett, CEO of Ignis Systems, “We’re excited to deliver ResultsAnywhere in response to our lab client’s needs. Although the ONC now allows patients to request lab reports directly from the labs, we agree with our lab and physician clients that patient reports should be guided by the care team at the practice. But until now, the workflow wasn’t efficient and the reports were marginally informative. With the guidance of our existing clients, we’ve built something that solves that problem.”
