Our software is built to integrate
LIS and Order Entry & Result Consultation software that talks many languages
The importance of being able to get different healthcare systems talking to each other cannot be overstated. That’s why all our individual products are designed to interoperate fully with our full software suite as well as with external systems.
But not every healthcare system is built with interoperability in mind which is why we take on the complex task of making sure our software communicates with your existing systems, whether that’s Electronic Patient Record, specialty-specific, GP or a non-connected care system.
Efficient, scalable, adaptable
We understand that a highly efficient, scalable and adaptable integration solution is essential for a modern diagnostic service and how it supports the overall patient care pathway. All communications and associated interface messages are fully audited ensuring that all vital patient results are always delivered to the correct location in a timely manner. The right result to the right location at the right time.
Delivering interoperable solutions
Our solutions support multiple connections to:
- Multiple Patient Administration Systems (PAS)
- Hospital Information Support Systems (HISS)
- Hospital Departmental Systems
- Order Entry & Result Consultation
- Results Reporting Systems (RR)
- Incumbent customer integration engines
- GP and community systems
- Hospital & healthcare portals
- Other third party applications using our APIs (Application Programming Interface)
Our approach to interoperability ensures the adoption of standard protocols such as HL7 and HL7 FHIR, which makes interfacing more affordable and easier to support.
The underlying principle is to make it easy to embed our solutions into various clinical workflows and present the diagnostic information for use by other systems and users, right across the healthcare landscape.
We manage all third-party system interfaces centrally and ensure significantly improved resilience in communication. Our interoperable solutions result in reduced lead times for new interfaces and allow greater levels of flexibility when handling site-specific interface requirements.
Our integrated solutions are highly scalable with the ability to handle high levels of throughput. For example, GLIMS, the most widely-used laboratory information system in Europe, has been designed to communicate with many third party systems.
GLIMS supports international standards including HL7, HPRIM, LDT, ASTM and Edifact, as well as SNOMED-CT and LOINC coding – to name only a few. It also supports many connections based on local or national standards and legacy systems. Hardware-independent, its uniform communication model makes it simple to incorporate GLIMS into an information network using third-party applications (data managers for instruments, hospital information systems, GP systems, insurance systems).
Supporting international standards
Support for all healthcare message formats and standards, including:
- HL7 (v2 and v3)
- HL7 FHIR®
A single central dashboard, where all interfaces and connections are viewed and managed is provided by Watchdog. This monitoring solution provides the user with a real-time system overview, which supports simplified troubleshooting.
GLIMS complies with international IHE regulations for the healthcare sector.
At annual IHE Connectathon events, systems are tested for interoperability with selected IHE profiles. At the 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2019 IHE Connectathons, GLIMS successfully passed all tests.
MyCareNet is an initiative of the NIC (Nationaal Intermutualistisch College) supported by RIZIV. Its main goal is to automate the exchange of medical/administrative documents between health care providers and insurance institutions. This significantly reduces the amount of paper work, speeds up the work flow and decreases human errors.
MIPS has been accredited with GLIMS to send invoice files to MyCareNet and request the insurance status of patients through the online network of MyCareNet. For those with a technical interest, this has been implemented through the MyCareNet web services.
This new GLIMS module allows our customers to speed up the reimbursements. This feature replaces the previous summaries and CD’s, thus accomplishing a great gain in time and cost reduction.
Our LIS products and Order Entry & Result Consultation solution integrate seamlessly, providing a reliable, efficient end-to-end solution for the diagnostic journey.
