ADL has passed Quest Diagnostics certification for Bi-Directional HL7 Transmissions for Laboratory Orders and Results.
Now nursing homes using Quest Laboratories can submit Lab Orders and results the Results electronically. The system supports recurring orders and the results are returned in both PDF and data formats.
The Order Entry (ORM) HL7 message is a commonly used message type. ORM messages contain information about an order that includes placing new orders, canceling existing orders, discontinuation, holding, etc. Orders pertain to either materials (e.g., 1 liter of 0.9% saline) or services (e.g., a blood panel, etc.)
