Lifepoint Informatics senior and technical management will be on hand at HIMSS booth #153 to provide information on its proven line of laboratory connectivity, interoperability, interface and data integration products that includes EMRHub, LabHub, InfoHub, Outreach MD and the Lifepoint ONC-ATCB Certified LPI Web Provider Portal. Lifepoint’s technical team possess extensive domain expertise in clinical laboratory operations with a focus on electronic results delivery and is involved in the ONC’s Office of Standards and Interoperability Lab Results Interface (LRI) pilot process, testing LRI integration specifications for LIS to ambulatory primary care organization EHR systems.
The proliferation of EMR vendors has made interoperability a challenge for labs, hospitals and healthcare systems. Hospitals, labs and other provider organizations are under pressure to keep pace with the connectivity demands and need to have the right technology in place to seamlessly integrate EMRs and EHRs into existing systems to remain competitive. Lifepoint has developed solutions that meet this connectivity and interoperability challenge including Lifepoint’s vendor neutral EMRHub that provides efficient and hassle free LIS to EMR interfacing with any EMR or EHR and Lifepoint’s LabHub which is a powerful Software as a Service (SaaS) based interface engine that enables EMRs to connect to multiple labs through one easy connection.
When quick access to lab results is needed, physicians can turn to Outreach MD, a Lifepoint mobile solution that enables providers to access results on a variety of hand-held devices such as the iPhone, iPad, Blackberry or Android. Outreach MD provides secure result delivery and review with mobile convenience and portability that today’s healthcare professionals need.
Lifepoint’s ONC-ATCB Certified LPI Web Provider Portal helps labs, hospitals, and ACOs meet the demand for connectivity with providers via browser-based, on-demand, superior portal solutions. LPI Web Provider Portal enables access to the most current data anytime from anywhere to help reduce turn-around-time and improve patient care. LPI Web Provider Portal works with existing HIS and LIS systems to leverage existing infrastructure and optimize the current IT investment.
