DrChrono Inc., the company enabling the medical practice of the future, announced today a new partnership with Lifepoint Informatics, a leader in healthcare IT focusing on laboratory outreach connectivity, health information exchange and clinical data interoperability. Lifepoint Informatics leveraged DrChrono’s open API to build an application for medical providers to easily and securely order patient labs and transfer the results to the patient’s EHR.
Lifepoint’s Order Entry and Result App enables DrChrono EHR users the ability to place diagnostic orders and receive result reports with any laboratory or radiology/imaging information system. Patient demographics, insurance and order information is seamlessly and securely integrated with the provider’s lab of choice. Medical professionals can place their order directly within DrChrono EHR via Lifepoint’s app and it will transmit orders electronically. As tests are completed they will appear instantly into the patient chart without the need to log into a separate system.

Sanchez, Executive Program Analyst, Horizon Healthcare, Inc. “Lab results are instantly integrated into the patient’s record and we’re able to share and discuss results with patients in a quicker turnaround.”
