Leveraging more than 20 years of accumulated healthcare data management knowledge, ELLKAY now offers an integrated requisition solution, LKDermConnect, for dermatology healthcare providers working with various laboratories.

LKDermConnect's Imaging Technology let's users document location by clicking the area on the body.

LKDermConnect's 'graphical' user interface puts ELLKAY at the forefront of healthcare information systems. We’re committed to offering the most cutting-edge solutions to solve our common industry problems using the latest technology for fostering growth.

ELLKAY is introducing its new LKDermConnect solution for dermatologists nationwide. LKDermConnect offers a fully integrated suite for recording and printing laboratory-customized requisitions with an unlimited number of biopsy sites, diagnoses, related treatments, images, and photographs, as well as manages an interactive log with complete history, all complying with HIPAA standards of medical record privacy.

Utilizing the feature-rich LKDermConnect, a dermatologist creates a new requisition for a patient, transparently retrieving the patient’s demographic and insurance data from the physician’s practice management system (PMS). ; This eliminates the need for manually transcribing and limits potential errors. Selecting a biopsy site is as easy as pointing and clicking a specific point on the image of the human body. This image is customizable based on sex for gender specific body parts. Each requisition allows for as many biopsy sites as necessary. The physician selects diagnoses or “rule outs” and related treatments from pre-configured lists, and can customize those lists or add data manually. Selected site images and site photographs are stored in the system and are easily viewed along with a diagnosis log. Among other features, the system supports multi-physician clinics, and has the ability to configure rooms and their related requisition and label printers. A physician can, thereby, print requisitions in the room where s/he treats the patient. The system can also be configured and branded for specific laboratories, customized requisition forms, and specimen labels.

LKDermConnect is an integrated combination of two software components: LKPrint, a Windows-based requisition-generating component that retrieves patient information from the dermatologist’s practice management system (PMS), and a browser based component for managing the physician’s interactive database log with history of all recorded requisitions.
