Lab Results Returned Automatically
From EMR, EHR and HIPAA Wiki
This depends on a lab interface, but is more reliable and integrated with the care given. In a two way lab interface the order is made in an EMR system and is sent automatically to the lab performing the test. Once the test results are processed by the lab, the results are sent back to the EMR automatically. In a one way lab interface, the order is made through paper or some other process, but the results are sent back electronically to the EMR.
