  5. EMR Services -EMR services are as follows:
    • Interface - We are able to interface with most EMR systems on the market.  Some EMR Vendors have a backlog before we can begin the interface process.  As a result, we recommend a commitment to interface within a reasonable time frame to ensure that we do not have to wait for a third party to catch up with our joint needs for an interface. 
    • Fax - We have the capability of faxing reports to clinician's fax machines, via our fax robot, which automatically faxes results.
    • Drag-and-Drop - For those providers that have EMR systems that have Drag-and-Drop functions, we are able to send PDF final reports to the appropriate file via fax. The office may then drag and drop the report into the appropriate file.
  6. Courier Services - We offer courier services, through Medical Courier Service, to meet the needs of each client. Your practice may either use one of our secure outside laboratory drop boxes for after hours pick-up, or have the courier pick up specimens at a designated time.  For long distance accounts, we will work with your practice to develop a shipping protocol that meets your needs and complies with applicable state and federal laws.
