Reviewing HL7 Lab Results
This lesson will describe how to review HL7 lab results after they have been received and imported into the patients chart. This requires a SOAPwareXchangeHL7 Lab Interface license.
The HL7 Lab Interface allows the clinic to establish a direct interface to automatically receive lab, pathology, radiology, even transcription reports and have them automatically filed into the patient’s chart in SOAPware with the powerful SOAPwareXchangeHL7 Interface Module. The module reads the demographic information in the report, finds the matching chart in SOAPware, transfers the report and notifies the provider all automatically. HL7 labs are considered structured labs and will count towards the structured lab requirements for Meaningful Use.

1. Task Item Notification
When lab result HL7 messages are received from the lab companies, they will be automatically imported into the appropriate patients chart. In addition, the ordering provider will be notified that the lab results have been received through the Task Manager.
A new task item will be placed on the appropriate provider's task list. To view the lab results, the provider should double-click on the task item to open them for viewing.
