Axis Diagnostics and Advanced Data Systems collaborate on EHR and lab

Axis Diagnostics, Inc. of Langhorne, PA and Advanced Data Systems (ADS) of Paramus, NJ have successfully collaborated on integrating systems.

Physicians using ADS' MedicsDocAssistant™ EHR will be able to send patient test orders directly to Axis Diagnostics. Results will be transmitted from Axis Diagnostics directly back into the patient's record in the MedicsDocAssistant EHR, completely automating the entire lab orders / results process.

The MedicsDocAssistant EHR then notifies the physician that results have been embedded into the patient's record and are ready for review. Notifications are elevated when results are abnormal.

Michael J. Olshavsky, President of Axis Diagnostics, said, "The high level of integration between both companies' systems is extraordinary. It is something about which we are extremely proud on a number of levels, not the least of which is how patients themselves will benefit by this type of technology. Ultimately, it's about patient safety and well being."

David Barzillai, President of ADS, noted, "There is no question as to the significance of patient safety and health maintenance operating under this type of technology. At the same time, redundancy, manual labor, and paperwork on the part of the patient, the lab, and the practice are eliminated while workflow and efficiency are maximized across the board for everyone."

As part of the companies' collaboration, the integration between Axis Diagnostics and the MedicsDocAssistant EHR is provided at no additional cost.

Since MedicsDocAssistant is certified for Meaningful Use, the system will also help ensure that physicians ("eligible professionals") obtain the Stimulus Act incentives to which they are entitled for EHR use.
