Orchard Harvest LIS utilizes process automation; robust instrument, billing, EMR, and reference laboratory interfaces; and rules-based technology to address regulatory and integration issues and simplify laboratory workflow. Harvest LIS improves reimbursements and simplifies the time-consuming task of medical necessity validation by automatically screening ICD-9 codes, testing frequency, and experimental procedures during order entry.
As an HL7 organization member and stand-alone laboratory system, Orchard specializes in seamless integration, which makes host system, EMR, billing, and reference laboratory interfaces routine, and makes linking multiple sites possible. Harvest LIS Microbiology and Anatomic Pathology systems eliminate paper and electronically integrate these departments with the rest of the laboratory. For EMR integration and remote order entry and results delivery via the Internet, Orchard offers the Orchard Harvest Webstation or Orchard Copia.
