We now have a demonstration video available for LKConnect for Gastroenterology!

LKConnect for GI is the latest of the LKConnect series (which originally started with LKDermConnect for Dermatopathology labs) and is intended for use by Gastroenterologists.

As we continue to expand our LKConnect series of products, we will continue to make more information available. For now, here’s a demonstration screen-capture video (without audio) showing the simplicity and power of LKConnect for Gastroenterology.

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.
