No HL7? No Problem – CattailsMD EHR connects to Ministry Health Systems Meditech system without the need for Meditech HL7
MD Connect is unique in being able to communicate between Meditech legacy-based applications – without HL7 interfaces – and physician EMR systems that only support HL7. This native support for legacy-based applications is distinct from other products that require expensive and time consuming HL7 interfaces to be retro-fitted.
The MD Connect solution allows hospital laboratories, clinical departments, ambulatory businesses, and physician practices to participate in a health information exchange with all others across the healthcare community. Our EMR strategy electronically delivers mostly any electronic patient data to physician EMR’s, meeting the physicians’ real-time clinical information, while offering the healthcare community the extraordinary benefits of a Connected healthcare.
Laboratories are looking to connect to their clients, Compete against the national laboratories, and Comply with government regulations with great demand from the outreach environment to provide an order-entry and results solution from an EMR application to a legacy-based application – regardless of whether the HCIS/LIS system has a traditional HL7 interface or not (eg. Meditech).
MD Connect is unique to legacy HIS/LIS screen level integration as each interface is developed as a program and run as an executable (.exe). Once the data is captured by the software it can be transmitted into virtually any format such as HL7, XML, X12 (others) via TCPIP. Now, Orders can be placed from the physician EMR for laboratory, microbiology and blood bank tests. MD Connect is the solution that allows physicians to enter lab orders and retrieve results through their EMR.
