The majority of EHR systems today are not “connected”. This means that orders and results are not being electronically sent or received by the EHR systems, instead they are processed manually.
Due to high costs and technology challenges, lab tests, radiology tests, hospital reports, and discharge summaries are still being ordered and received on paper.
The InteliChart Integration Engine eliminates the complexities and high costs associated with interfacing technologies. Through a single web service connection, hospitals can electronically send test results, transcribed reports and discharge summaries to all the provider practices they work with.
Healthcare practices can send and receive test results that will route to all third party reference labs and hospitals of their choice - all through one convenient connection.
InteliChart is committed to Connected Health and expanding our connectivity network. Historically connecting provider EHRs to reference labs and hospitals has been hindered by inefficient technologies and high costs. Connecting to a reference would traditionally cost around $10,000 while hospital connectivity could exceed $50,000.
InteliChart introduces an innovative healthcare solution to this problem where technology challenges are streamlined and high costs are eliminated. Now, connecting / interfacing with a lab will only cost about $45 a month and hospital connectivity for labs, radiology, or discharge summaries is equally affordable at around $65 monthly.
The days of managing multiple VPN connections to facilitate interfacing are over. InteliChart enables hospitals and practices to make one simple web service connection to accomplish all their interfacing requirements.
This means that a hospital will need only one connection to InteliChart to route discharge summaries, lab results, and diagnostic results to all ambulatory providers. Practices no longer have to navigate the technical processes for each reference lab and hospital they interface to - now one simple connection to InteliChart will route all provider orders and results.
InteliChart accommodates most vendor interface types, including:
InteliChart has relationships with hospital/acute care system vendors to facilitate their Health Information Exchange (HIE) efforts. InteliChart has become a “Hub” for hospital EHR system vendors to provide routing and integration to ambulatory systems.
This means that hospitals in the healthcare industry that utilize these vendor systems can streamline their efforts by requiring only one connection to InteliChart and InteliChart will facilitate all information exchange with the ambulatory providers.
