SET THE SCENE
  • A leading neonatology practice installed an electronic health record (EHR) system to manage patient information more efficiently.
  • Unfortunately, the practice’s affiliated hospital moved to a new EHR system.
  • This meant the practice could not share data with or receive data from the hospital’s admission, lab and document management systems.
  • Looking to overcome this issue, the practice contacted Konica Minolta’s All Covered Healthcare IT Division.

USED TECHNOLOGIES
  • Two-way Integration
  • Health Level 7 (HL7)— the international standard for transferring clinical data between EHR system

KONICA MINOLTA SOLUTION

Having analyzed the situation, All Covered Healthcare Practice designed and implemented a two-way integration. This involved developing an interface using Health Level 7 (HL7)— the international standard for transferring clinical data between EHR systems—so the two systems could speak the same language.

IMPACT

This integration helped to solve a serious problem for the neonatology practice by reducing the amount of time staff had to spend on admin and allowing them to focus on patient care.

  • Faster and more secure exchange of patient data
  • Lowered costs due to reduced manual processes
  • Improved communication among staff and physicians
  • One consistent, electronic view of patient data
  • Improved data quality with reduced errors
