Eliminate Data Entry by Automatically Capturing Clinical Lab Test Values in EMR Fields

Capturing lab results values in discrete EHR fields ensures physicians are able to interpret test results within the context of all patient data in the EHR. It also ensures the EHR can trigger important safety measures such as alerting physicians to abnormal or critical results. Perhaps most importantly, it means no more scrolling through lists of PDF attachments to find test results.

Extract Systems intelligent clinical data extraction software automatically captures test values from clinical labs in discrete EMR fields without doing any data entry. Here's how it works. The intelligent data extraction server monitors folders where you store incoming lab results. When documents arrive it analyzes them to find test values buried inside the document. Before the data is committed to the EHR, it places the document into a queue for verification. It speeds up the verification process with a rapid verification interface that can be used from any computer on the network.

As you can see, on the right hand side is the original document. On the left is all the data that has been automatically captured. As I tab through the data capture fields you'll see the captured values appear in the yellow boxes directly over the corresponding data in the original document. That way the verifier never has to shift their eyesight between screens, reducing the risk of making a mistake. If the verifier finds an error, they simply correct it in the data capture pane on the left and then continue verifying once corrected.

When I press save this data will be sent to save and show next document coming up in the EHR. The original document will be attached to the patient record, and the verifier's automatically presented with the next document to check. That's it, fast, easy and accurate. In less than two minutes I was able to verify the data and post it to the patient's record. The software also performs other steps like validating demographic data in the EHR, expediting results for priority patients, identifying duplicate tests, matching results to orders and standardizing all test data to match your test codes. I'll cover those topics in future videos, so please stay tuned.
