What Our Customers Say...


“One of the greatest points about Harvest is the functionality that allows us to set up location-specific sample requirements for each order choice because the same test may be performed at any of four locations and each of those testing locations may have different specimen requirements for the same test. We can even make immediate changes if an analyzer goes down and testing has to be moved to another analyzer. The ease of doing that has helped us tremendously and it helps significantly with training as well, says Robin. “Routing rules firing at the time of order entry make it so much easier on the phlebotomists. We use rules extensively, for everything from adding comments to results to billing,” explains Robin. At ECL, they have one order choice each for CMP, BMP, CBC, etc., then routing rules are used to direct testing to the right location based on insurance, test availability, or methodology. Without the rules, our orders would be a nightmare.”

Robin Williams, LIS Coordinator, East Tennessee State University

"Implementation of Orchard Point-of-Care allows point-of-care (POC) test results to flow from the POC software to both the LIS and the HIS through the interface, resulting in faster access to POC test results and the ability to monitor QC and competencies within one system."

Judy Thompson, MT(ASCP), Point-of-Care Supervisor, Washington Health System

"Over the years, I have had an abundance of interaction with many Orchard personnel and everyone has been extremely helpful and professional. I am also impressed with how proactive Orchard is—staying ahead of industry changes and communicating with users via thought leadership forums (e.g., white papers, symposiums, webinars, etc.). My team and I have gotten a lot of useful continuing education from Orchard's resources."
