The way in which a lab can interface between hospitals, physicians, patient records and other clients is critical to almost every operation. Apollo eXchange is able to bridge the gaps between all of these stakeholders by combining multiple industry-standard communication protocols and procedures in one software package.
To ease the burden on lab managers, Apollo eXchange simplifies the integration process from both ends. Utilizing the Health Level 7 International (HL7) standard to allow for interfacing and data transfer with medical facilities, a lab can send and receive data using a number of common protocols and file formats.
Data sharing between a laboratory and other healthcare systems involves numerous moving parts. Among other things, Apollo eXchange provides authorized users access to software which allows them to:
Developing integrated interfaces between disparate health information systems can be complex. Additionally, varying laboratory client requirements require flexibility in accommodating interface specifications and types of interfaces. Apollo eXchange supports the most common interface types including:
Integration with genomic service providers is a growing need for many laboratories performing pharmacogenomic and Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) genomic testing. These companies provide valuable input on the laboratory results such as data analysis, interpretation and reporting. ApolloLIMS has the capability of developing robust results and reporting interfaces with the genomic service providers to improve turn-around time and increase efficiency in delivering reports.
