Practice Fusion Launches API to Democratize Lab Integrations
Date:5/2/2012

SAN FRANCISCO, May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Practice Fusion, the free Electronic Medical Record (EMR) company, today announced the launch of its new lab API, which allows any laboratory in the country to connect directly to the EMR. The lab API – first of its kind in the health sector – enables rapid deployment of new laboratory connections that would ordinarily take weeks or months to establish, giving over 150,000 medical professionals easy access to their local commercial, hospital and private laboratories. Practice Fusion already has 70 labs signed up for connectivity with the help of the new API.

"The process couldn't have been easier and the Practice Fusion team was highly responsive in handling our feedback," said Anita Miles, Executive Director at GYN PATH Services in Texas. "This kind of innovation and service is exactly what is needed to digitalize the lab integration process and improve the entire healthcare ecosystem."

Key highlights:

  • Practice Fusion's Lab API allows laboratories to connect to the EMR platform instantly with almost no turnaround time
  • Labs can use the API connection to instantly send lab results to Practice Fusion users with standard HL7 data files
  • Any commercial laboratory – including clinical, pathology, reference and hospital systems – can send lab results to users directly within the EMR
  • Minimal development is required from the lab and Practice Fusion offers free integration support
  • Over 150,000 medical providers using the EMR can connect to their national and regional labs of choice at no cost

Doctors are increasingly receiving electronic lab results with the help of EMRs, abandoning old fax-based transmissions that can result in increased downtime or errors. More than 10 billion laboratory tests are performed in the US each year and tests are essential to the prognosis and treatment of chronic conditions. While the cost of independent lab integration can typically range from $1,000 to $2,000 per physician, Practice Fusion provides connections to labs at no cost to them.

Practice Fusion is using input from the user community and partner organizations to continue improving the design and functionality of the service. All upcoming features, upgrades and new laboratory integrations will remain free for providers.

Labs interested in connecting to Practice Fusion's EMR should contact Erica Martinez at emartinez@practicefusion.com or request more information online. Physicians interested in signing up for the free EMR should visit http://www.practicefusion.com
