How do I receive labcorp results into Charm EHR?
LabCorp has to initiate the process to interface your lab results with Charm EHR. Inform your LabCorp representative about your decision to go with Charm EHR. Ask them to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to add new labs, tests, and parameters?
Add and Customize new labs, tests, and parameters in the 'Labs > Customize Labs' section. You can find the detailed steps in this link.
How does lab interface integration work with Charm EHR and its advantages?
Lab interfaces will help you in sending orders electronically to labs from your Charm EHR account and receive results electronically from labs into your account. With Charm EHR you can connect to multiple labs electronically. Interfacing allows Charm EHR clients to safely share information across operations.
If you have an in-house lab, the specimen can be drawn in your facility and an order can be placed directly to Lab Information System. Orders can also be placed directly with the Patient Service Centre from where the Patient can get their tests performed.
What is the procedure involved in integrating your labs with your Charm EHR account?
Only the Lab Representative can initiate the integration process for your account. The Practice can contact the local lab representative for this.
Once initiated, the Lab approves the interface and contacts Charm Team for development & testing. Charm has a dedicated lab-interface team that works with a lab to implement the interface.
Note: Email email@example.com after contacting your local lab representative. For Quest Interface, you can also initiate the integration process through Quest's official link https://www.getmyinterface.com/request.cgi. You need to fill in the vendor details as mentioned below:
Vendor Name: MedicalMine Inc.
Vendor Contact: Venky Chellappa
Vendor Phone Number: 224-523-3793
