Orchard’s laboratory information systems provide you with tools to help maintain a productive laboratory despite current staffing challenges, tightening reimbursements, and changing healthcare environments. Utilizing process automation, robust interfaces (analyzer, billing, host system, and reference laboratory), and rules-based decision-support technology, Orchard systems address regulatory issues, improve efficiency, reduce errors, and increase reimbursements. The design and development of Harvest LIS, with ongoing input from our diverse user base, includes many powerful, flexible features and optional modules capable of handling a variety of laboratory workflows and business situations. Orchard is committed to developing, installing, and supporting the very best laboratory information systems, and, as healthcare continues to progress, Orchard will continue to respond to the needs of the laboratory and provide the strategic partnership needed for laboratory success.
The Value of the Lab in the New Healthcare Model
In an effort to empower laboratorians and give specific suggestions for ways to prosper within a value-based healthcare setting, Orchard has published a white paper entitled The Value of the Lab in the New Healthcare Model. If you are concerned about how your laboratory will fit in the changing healthcare environment, this white paper may help you rethink your lab’s role within your organization, encourage you to become more engaged in your facility’s overall success, and help you successfully maneuver through the volume-to-value shift in the healthcare reimbursement model.
