OpenText™ announces Pathos Clinical Solutions, an independent, full service clinical laboratory, has selected OpenText™ EMR-Link™ for comprehensive EMR integration, Computurized Physician Order Entry (CPOE) and secure connectivity to clinicians.
“Pathos specializes in delivering customized diagnostic and testing solutions to assist physicians, hospitals, long term care and other medical organizations with personalized medicine ,” said Weston Black, Co-Owner/Co-Founder at Pathos. “This connection with EMR-Link is critical to our mission to improve patient care. EMR-Link’s unified EMR integration and CPOE solution provide clean and complete orders and help deliver faster diagnostic results to the physicians and long term care facilities we serve.”
Clinical lab and EMR integration improves connectivity between clinical laboratories and their physician customers. The electronic exchange of lab requisitions and resulting reports optimizes workflow, enhances security and improves data capture in the patient’s electronic medical record. Lab integration digitizes and electronically exchanges the relevant data to support patient diagnosis and treatment.
OpenText™ EMR-Link™ delivers a cost-effective unified approach to lab and EMR integration. EMR-Link, part of the Business Network portfolio of secure information exchange, helps provide the consistent connectivity that labs and imaging centers require and handles the EMR integration complexity, manpower and monitoring requirements on behalf of the diagnostic center and in support of their clinician users. EMR-Link helps integrate faster, with fewer resources and at a lower cost.
“Secure integration to electronic medical records helps to reduce reliance on paper and manual processes, elimate errors, ensure timely orders, and support proper insurance applications – all important outcomes to improving patient care and treatment,” said OpenText Chief Product Officer Muhi Majzoub. “In particular, enabling immediate care to one of our most vulnerable populations, those residing in long term care centers, can be critical to improving patient outcomes.”
Efficiency, accuracy and security are critical for any data exchange between medical professionals, and even more so during a global health crisis. As clinical labs extend outreach services they need to seamlessly connect to multiple EMRs, fit into normal workflows, and support intelligent ordering in order to optimize operations and improve care.
