Orchard Software LIS features web-enabled results reporting, an ICD-9 filter to aid with OIG compliance and a routing filter to prompt the user with approved testing destinations based on a patient’s payor.
     One module facilitates the delivery of patient lab results via e-mail. The result report, addressed to a physician’s e-mail, allows for access from any location. A Results Delivery Report lists all e-mails, faxes, or print jobs. Security is consistent with HCFA Internet guidelines.
     The testing destination filter prompts users to approved testing destinations based on the patient’s payor and the tests ordered. The significance of tracking approved testing destinations increases as more HMOs and insurance companies contract independently with national reference labs and are require providers to respect those arrangements.
