Insights:

  • Standardized clinical terminologies such as LOINC® are pivotal to laboratory system semantic interoperability
  • Health Level Seven standards (HL7v2, HL7v3, Clinical Document Architecture) are widely used in the international community for electronic laboratory order and result exchange
  • Lab information systems implemented at jurisdictional levels can provide significant cost savings to health systems through reduction in duplication and unnecessary tests
  • These processes reduce storage, dissemination and duplication costs – enabling tests to be stored and shared electronically

The electronic exchange of laboratory results can enable authorized healthcare providers to quickly access laboratory test orders and results leading to faster diagnoses and treatment, regardless of where the patient was tested.

We can help you to identify and implement laboratory system integration solutions that are aligned with your overall EHR strategy, while being mindful of current and emerging international standards. Our deep clinical, analytical and technical expertise in laboratory systems spans from local laboratory standardization assessments (i.e., messaging and clinical terminologies) to jurisdictional and national laboratory information system integration solutions to the development of international laboratory exchange standards.

Deep Laboratory Standards Experience

We have laboratory professionals recognized as thought leaders in the international laboratory standards community, including (HL7®), Integrating the Health Enterprise (IHE), Regenstrief and the International Standards Organization (ISO).

Breadth and Depth of Experience

Our teams’ expertise spans laboratory system solution analysis, design, development, testing, integration, implementation and conformance services.
