How do I receive labcorp results into ChARM EHR?
Inform your LabCorp representative about your decision to go with ChARM EHR, and ask them to contact us. LabCorp will initiate the process to interface your lab results to ChARM EHR.
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 to 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 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 are the labs currently established the interface with ChARM EHR?
ChARM supports Bidirectional and Unidirectional interfaces with labs. In Bidirectional, Orders can be placed electronically and results will be received electronically. Unidirectional allows only to receive results electronically from labs into your ChARM EHR accounts.
We are having bidirectional Lab Interface established with the following labs.
Similarly, unidirectional (result only) interface established with these labs.
What is the procedure involved in integrating your labs with your ChARM EHR account?
To enable the lab interface with your labs, please contact your local lab representative to initiate the integration process. Generally, labs will be starting the project and assign a Project Manager. Project Manager will be sending the activation request to firstname.lastname@example.org. On receiving an activation request from the lab, our lab-integration team will start work on to complete the integration process for your ChARM EHR account. Please ask your local lab representative to initiate the project and to share our email id, email@example.com to their project team for further communication.
For Quest Interface, you can also initiate the integration process through this link https://www.getmyinterface.com/request.cgi
