Electronic Lab Order and Electronic Results automate timeliness and improve newborn care.

OZ Connect outbound interface generates an electronic lab order to the state laboratory information management system (LIMS) in an HL7 standards-based message. This message not only contains the patient demographics but also the newborn blood spot data elements required for accurate analysis of the specimen.

OZ Telepathy™ NBS Electronic Lab Order:

  • Provides the laboratory with information related to how many specimens are being sent allowing for cross check on whether a specimen is received
  • Saves staff time by eliminating the re-keying of data elements at the lab
  • Reduces missing, illegible or incorrect data received at the lab

 

OZ Connect CCHD, EHDI & NBS inbound interfaces send HL7 results messages back to the Electronic Health Record (EHR) (OZ NANI™ required). Improves accuracy of the data reported to the newborn’s medical home.

OZ Telepathy™ CCHD & EHDI results into EHR:

  • Reduces duplicate data entry for hospital staff
  • Reduces errors by eliminating manual data entry

OZ eSP™ receives NBS lab results from newborn screening labs. OZ eSP™ transmits the newborn results to the EHR.

OZ Telepathy™ NBS results into EHR:

  • Reduces duplicate data entry for hospital staff
  • Reduces errors by eliminating manual data entry
  • Improves timeliness of data returning to the hospital and ultimately to the newborn’s medical home
  • Improves accuracy of the data reported to the newborn’s medical home
     

When follow-up is essential to timely newborn care knowing the screening results as quickly as possible is crucial.  With all newborn screenings, there is a critical window of opportunity to change a baby’s future and prevent life-lasting disability or death. OZ Systems creates solutions to provide care within that window of opportunity.
