Orchard® Harvest LIS
Orchard’s laboratory information systems provide you with the tools to help you maintain a productive laboratory despite current staffing shortages, tightening reimbursements, and changing healthcare environments. Utilizing process automation, robust interfaces (instrument, billing, host system, and reference laboratory), and rules-based decision-support technology, Orchard’s systems address regulatory issues, improve efficiency, reduce errors, and increase reimbursements.
The design of Harvest LIS includes many powerful, flexible features and optional modules that makes it easy to use.
We know your purchase is more than an LIS, and to be a truly great company we must understand your expectations and then exceed those expectations in both the product and in your experience with the company itself. Orchard’s customer-focused approach is confirmed time and time again through numerous awards and recognition.
Host system integration and the decision-support technology available in Harvest LIS help to manage the order entry process, eliminating errors, increasing revenue, and helping your order entry staff save time and speed up the check-in/order process.
Improve reimbursements and simplify the time-consuming task of medical necessity validation during order entry by automatically screening for ICD-9/ICD-10 codes, testing frequency, and experimental procedures, and when necessary, generating an ABN.
Customizable rules reduce errors and aid in decision making for order entry, billing/CPT codes, splitting orders, auto-approval of patient results, reflexing additional testing, automatic comments, clinical follow-up recommendations, and result delivery.
Patient report formats are customizable and can present historical results in a graphical format, and you can easily format cumulative reports to satisfy the requests of individual providers.
Orchard’s systems have several customizable reporting options, enhancing your lab’s value to providers and patients. Upon approval in the lab, reports can be printed, faxed, emailed, web-delivered, or sent to a host system to meet each provider’s needs.
Patient results are filed electronically in the patient’s record, so they are readily available to view, print, fax, email, web-deliver, or send to a host system, eliminating paper files and the time-consuming task of manually locating and delivering them.
Streamlined administrative queries are a quick and easy source for information, giving you the data you need to monitor and increase productivity and quality in your lab.
Data browsers by Patient, Order (Case in AP), Order Choice (Specimen in AP), and Result are data mining tools that make it very easy to create ad hoc reports and to schedule them to run automatically, without the need for complex programming or the help of the IT department.
Configurable Westgard rules and extensive support for qualitative and quantitative QC make QC management quick and easy, and QC approval rules prevent patient results from being reported before QC results are approved.
In today’s HIPAA-conscious environment, security is an important concern for labs, and robust security features assist your system administrator in managing security in a variety of ways.
Harvest LIS is the clear choice for "best-of-breed" integrated systems. Using the HL7 format, host system (EMR/HIS), billing, instrument, and reference laboratory interfaces are routine, and the seamless integration of multiple laboratory sites is possible. See the list of interfaces Orchard supports.
For every installation, an Orchard Systems Engineer will come on-site to ensure that your system is running smoothly and that the system administrator knows its inner-workings inside and out.
To get the full advantage of the robust features in your laboratory system, Orchard offers four different training classes throughout the year at our headquarters in Carmel, Indiana.

Orchard’s Microbiology module eliminates paper and gives your microbiology department the benefits of rules-based power to manage workflow and provide technical direction. In addition, CLSI/NCCLS-approved antibiograms make tracking susceptibility patterns simple by automatically eliminating duplicate results.
