Fletcher-Flora Health Care Systems Inc, Anaheim, Calif, has introduced FFlex eLink™, clinical instrument connectivity software for small physician office labs that creates links between a lab’s clinical instruments and an electronic medical record, practice management system, electronic health records, or other host system.

The software helps streamline integration of one or more instruments to a host, which helps reduce the need for manual transcription of results and can increase lab efficiency, improve accuracy in the patient’s electronic record, and reduce liability associated with transcription errors.

The product accepts and transmits data and provides a user interface that allows users to define tests and reference ranges, approve or reject results, and monitor real-time instrument logs. It provides an intuitive way to manually enter results should offline results from manual tests need to be entered.
