Seamless Interoperability between Your Laboratory and the Practice EMR: ELLKAY makes it Happen


What can ELLKAY do for your lab?

To compete in today’s healthcare market, laboratories are seeking long-term connectivity partners who will help them add value to their services, assist referring physicians in delivering better outcomes, and improve bottom lines. Since 2002, ELLKAY has been committed to making interoperability happen, acting as a one-stop-shop for laboratory connectivity.

For over a decade, we have been connecting laboratories to EMR/PM systems, building a strong foundation of laboratory expertise, and growing our comprehensive knowledgebase of structured data and system connectivity. Partnering with ELLKAY enables laboratories to take advantage of the relationships and connectivity we have built with hundreds of EMR systems.

Our quality support and full-service solutions have made us a nationwide leader in providing connectivity throughout the healthcare continuum. We empower diagnostic laboratories with powerful, cost-effective technologies and solutions they need to increase revenue and market-share, including

  • Solutions for electronic orders and results
  • Implementing and managing interfaces with EMRs
  • Cross-reference mapping for insurance codes, test codes, and LOINC codes
  • Real-time connectivity to patient demographic and insurance information
  • A clinical data feed from multiple EMR systems to support ACO interoperability.

With connectivity to 500+ PM/EMR systems in 31,000+ practices, we are the healthcare industry’s “Data Plumbers,” building the data pipeline for laboratories, hospitals, PM/EMR systems, HIEs, ACOs, and other healthcare organizations.

Where Can ACOs Go When EHRs Don’t Meet Their Needs?


As KLAS reported in their recent study, the majority (68%) of physician-led accountable care organizations surveyed are finding that their EHR systems are not meeting all of their technological requirements.

While EHR use is important for ACO participation, most EHRs aren’t yet able to offer the connectivity, care management, or reporting capabilities that ACOs need to improve and report on healthcare outcomes.

Acquiring accurate data from each system for each practice in an ACO can be difficult, especially for physician practices with limited IT resources, disparate EHR systems, or very complex EHR systems.

At ELLKAY, we’ve used our EMR data expertise to design a comprehensive solution that helps ACOs supplement their EHR technology. Leveraging over a decade of practice in mining healthcare data and experience in over 900 versions across over 450 EMR/PM systems, we’ve created LKPatientDataLink.

LKPatientDataLink is a one-stop solution for EMR/EHR connectivity and clinical data acquisition. Connecting to thousands of different individual practice’s EHR systems, it extracts any and all relevant data, including delta changes of patient records, and delivers them to ACOs and ACO solution providers in a standard, discrete, useable format.
