About Orchard Software

Orchard Software installed its first Laboratory Information System in Indianapolis, Indiana, in 1993. Since that first installation, more than 1,500 laboratories across the country have turned to Orchard Software—including all types and sizes of multi-site and multi-specialty clinics and physician office laboratories, hospitals, regional reference labs, fertility clinics, veterinary labs, university student health services, research laboratories, pain management clinics, and public health organizations.

Orchard’s Vision, Mission, and Values

Orchard is the pioneer in delivering state of the art diagnostic information systems with coverage across the full spectrum of healthcare organizations.

Our mission is to provide laboratories with software and services that improve value in patient care.

Orchard’s core values are caring, leadership, focus, responsiveness, and reliability.

Improve Efficiency, Reduce Errors, Increase Revenue, and Enhance Patient Care

Our award-winning laboratory information systems utilize process automation, robust interface and integration tools, and rules-based technology to address regulatory and integration issues and simplify laboratory workflow. Orchard lab systems can help improve reimbursements and simplify the time-consuming task of medical necessity validation by automatically screening ICD-10 codes, testing frequency, and experimental procedures during order entry. In today’s value-based healthcare environment, Orchard’s systems provide superior tools and support that maximize productivity and efficiency so that your lab can make essential contributions that improve organizational revenue and support patient-centered care.

Seamless Integration, Laboratory Outreach, and EHR Connectivity

As an HL7 organization member and developer of stand-alone laboratory systems, Orchard specializes in seamless integration, which makes point-of-care testing, instrument, host system, EMR/EHR/HIS, billing, HIE, and reference laboratory interfaces routine, and linking multiple testing sites possible. Orchard is an expert in information systems integration and has successfully completed thousands of interfaces for our laboratory customers. More than simply implementing interfaces, Orchard is actively involved in the creation of interfacing standards at several levels as a member of various organizations and international initiatives on systems integration.

The input from our diverse user base drives the continuous development of our products and helps us improve and enhance our systems to provide the broadest set of features, equipped to handle a variety of laboratory workflows and business situations.

From the seeds sown in our first installation in 1993, Orchard Software continues to grow and develop software that makes life easier in the lab.
