Lifepoint Informatics developed the technology and has the project management experience to successfully manage complex interfaces and make them operational and supportable. The Lifepoint HL7 interfaces are flexible and accommodate the HL7 standard for transmission of data, as well as proprietary formats via customization. Healthcare organizations may contract with Lifepoint to implement interfaces on a reasonable project fee basis. Lifepoint designs and builds the interfaces in consultation with your organization and the legacy system vendor.
Examples of the data exchange facilitated by Lifepoint include: Patient billing and demographics to the hospital registration systems physician office practice management system interfaces orders to laboratory information systems or interface engine results from laboratory information systems or interface engine four-way reference laboratory interfaces.
“The purpose of the LOINC database is to facilitate the exchange and pooling of results, such as blood hemoglobin, serum potassium, or vital signs, for clinical care, outcomes management, and research. Currently, most laboratories and other diagnostic services use HL7 to send their results electronically from their reporting systems to their care systems. However, most laboratories and other diagnostic care services identify tests in these messages by means of their internal and idiosyncratic code values. Thus, the care system cannot fully “understand” and properly file the results they receive unless they either adopt the producer’s laboratory codes (which is impossible if they receive results from multiple sources), or invest in the work to map each result producer’s code system to their internal code system. LOINC codes are universal identifiers for laboratory and other clinical observations that solve this problem.” Derived from www.regenstrief.org/loinc
Lifepoint has expertise in building models and reporting systems to support the LOINC database. Lifepoint can assist your laboratory in transforming your CPT/ Mnemonic based test catalog to be compliant with the LOINC database.
