Xtract Solutions systems have the ability to interface with your EMR/EHR. This allows you to receive and view patient information from the Xtract Solutions systems directly on your EMR/EHR, giving you a full picture of your patient’s health.
Interfacing also allows for reporting, updating of patient demographic information, billing of charges, and additional information to be shared between the two systems, increasing your clinician’s productivity and allowing for an efficient transfer of information.
The methods that these interfaces are configured are listed below with full details into the process and additional options within each messaging system.
ADT (Patient Demographics and Visits)
ADT (Admit Discharge Transfer) messages are sent from the EMR or Practice Management system to Xtract Solutions. The ADT feed is typically filtered down to a specific clinic, specific provider(s), and/or for a specific visit type.
Once the list has been filtered, the following steps are put into action.
Outbound Results (ORU)
Outbound results are triggered to send when an end-user clicks a “send report” button. These reports are typically sent as an ORU message with a base64 MIME encoded PDF and formatted text but can also be pared down to just the PDF or into discrete fields for aliasing/data mapping.
There are four places where an outbound message can be generated and interfaced:
These messages can be sent as flat files or to a TCP/IP endpoint. The most common way we see these filed in the EMR is in the Procedures tab under Chart Review (or equivalent) but this is an open discussion point to be had during the Design phase of the project.
DFT Message (Billing Capture)
A billing dialog allows end-users to send charge captures via an interface to the EMR or PM application. The procedure (CPT) and diagnosis (ICD-10) codes are configured in the system for each appropriate billing event.
