"New Opportunities for Your Lab's LIS-EMR Interface:
How to Profit From the "Big Wave" About
to Hit Healthcare," you and your staff will get
an unprecedented look at why EMR vendors fail to accommodate clinical-laboratory
and anatomic-pathology test ordering and reporting. Then, we'll
show you the easiest, fastest, and least expensive ways for your
lab to beef up its LIS-EMR interface, allowing physicians-working
inside their EMRs-to seamlessly order tests, view results, and
research lab test topics in a way that supports their own personal
to the audio CD as Wolfram provides insights, advice, and
real-world examples on the latest in EMR software and functionality.
You'll learn about the coming challenges and best solutions for
your lab, plus how some top-performing laboratories already deliver
enriched informatics services to their client physicians. At the
top of this list is the importance of "meaningful use,"
a new federal incentive to encourage EMR adoption.
will also show you how radiology ordering, enabled in the LIS-EMR
interface by innovative hospital laboratory outreach programs,
is helping to attract new outreach customers. That's right! Progressive
hospitals and health systems are combining their radiology and
laboratory efforts to provide a fully integrated solution.
a compelling value proposition for office-based physicians.
Best of all, it's an ordering service and patient-data source
that the national labs can't match! Only the local hospital
outreach programs can provide office-based physicians integrated
access to all their patients' imaging and laboratory test data
in this manner.
learn just how successful these programs can be, our second speaker,
Ruth Johanson of Providence Health & Services, Portland, Oregon,
will provide details on a laboratory-outreach program at Providence
Health of Portland, Oregon. You'll get details on the innovative
partnership between their laboratory and radiology groups, and
find out why integrating radiology orders into the EMR through
the lab's LIS was a smart move. You'll come away with an understanding
of what works-and what to avoid-when you introduce this same service
through your lab's LIS-EMR portal.
the latest details on the steps your lab must take and the new
opportunities about to be unlocked by the coming EMR "Big
Wave." This is the first time this information is being offered
to labs like yours so take advantage of the opportunity to get
a jump on your competition. And don't forget-the audio conference
format allows you to assemble key team leaders in your lab and
participate together in the call.
the clinical laboratories and pathology groups that are most
successful at LIS-EMR integration will be big financial winners
in coming years. So don't wait!Reserve
