As a certified Health IT Quality Solution, Liaison Healthcare's EMR-Link solution has been recognized by Quest Diagnostics as meeting or exceeding advanced industry standards for health IT quality and for providing a streamlined, interoperable solution that enables secure clinical laboratory ordering and results reporting through Quest Diagnostics connectivity solutions.
Quest Diagnostics created the Health IT Quality Solutions Program to collaborate with providers of electronic health record (EHR) and other clinical technologies such as Liaison's EMR-Link™, which integrates lab orders and results into the provider's EMR workflow to achieve optimized clinical and operational quality for the benefit of physician practices, hospitals, and integrated delivery networks. The Program is designed to maximize data quality, and data and business process interoperability between Quest Diagnostics and select clinical technology solutions that meet Quest's high standards.
"In our eyes, Liaison makes our practice's EHR more efficient; providing a well-integrated, easy-to-use lab ordering and lab reporting workflow," said Dr. Mitch Feldman of Patriot Pediatrics.
To be eligible for the Program, a clinical technology solution must have an approved and commercially viable interface to the Quest Diagnostics web services Data Exchange Service, which processes both lab orders and results. It can then qualify for one of three certification tiers—Silver, Gold, or Platinum—by meeting increasingly stringent and comprehensive criteria related to laboratory order and result functionality, implementation processes, and other mutually beneficial business activity. Liaison's EMR-Link is certified at the Program's Gold tier.
