HL7 integration


What is HL7 Integration?

A secure data exchange of electronic orders and reports between healthcare organizations and the State Lab. 

Why should I use HL7?

  • HL7 integration provides the user to order tests though an EHR system and receive results back into the same EHR system.
  • HL7 integration eliminates errors associated with incomplete forms and data entry. 
  • HL7 integration allows healthcare organizations to scale their electronic orders/reports and adapt what tests are ordered/reported electronically.

  1. Review the HL7 Hosted Interface Specifications document.
  2. Become a customer of the State Lab - Skip this step if your facility is already testing with the State Lab.
