NovoPath, a leader in best-of-breed anatomic pathology (AP) software solutions, announces implementation of its 200th interface connecting the company’s advanced NovoPath™ laboratory information system (LIS) to a full range of complementary healthcare IT systems--helping to provide efficiency in the lab environment and beyond and facilitate continuity-of-care. These interfaces represent data exchange capabilities with more than 80 unique healthcare IT solutions.

While NovoPath flawlessly manages lab data, workflow and many business functionalities using customized interfaces, it keeps information flowing to a wide range of systems including electronic medical record (EMR), practice management (PM), billing, and clinical LIS solutions, a variety of hospital enterprise software systems, physician portals and more.

“Connectivity among different healthcare IT systems provides significant benefits for lab professionals,” notes Rick Callahan, VP Sales and Marketing at NovoPath. “It streamlines workflow, improves turnaround time of the lab tests, eliminates redundant entry of patient information and reduces probability of errors.”

In addition, he points out that in the wake of new healthcare initiatives emphasizing communication across the continuum-of-care, IT connectivity and interoperability are of vital importance. “Hospitals are rapidly moving away from discreet silos of data,” he notes. “The ability to share information among systems and across departments quickly and seamlessly is becoming an expectation.”

Callahan points out that to provide connectivity, many vendors employ third-party interfaces, which may not be optimized for the systems involved or as reliable as vendor-supplied solutions. “The NovoPath team is pleased to custom develop the interface a customer desires within our parameters, and we believe in-house development is generally the better choice when considering the longer term.”

All interfaces are developed by the NovoPath software team to assure reliability and ease of management. NovoPath is equipped to custom develop an interface to any system that relies on standard HL7, XML, ASTM, PDF and other industry file formats. That emphasis on customization and customer service has been a NovoPath hallmark since the company’s inception. The NovoPath platform was developed to provide flexibility to support individualized workflows and to meet the demands of today’s challenging medical environment.

Today, NovoPath has one of the largest installation bases of all best-of-breed AP laboratory information system (LIS) solutions. The company holds Microsoft Gold ISV Competency Certification, which testifies that it has met rigorous international standards assuring the highest degree of technical expertise and product quality. It is certified by the Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®) as an EHR Module for Stage 1 Meaningful Use, qualifying eligible users for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
