Public Health Electronic Laboratory Reporting and Communication Portal for Laboratory Outreach Management System

Massachusetts Department of Health Public Health Electronic Laboratory Reporting and Communication Portal for Laboratory Outreach Management System

Under Meaningful Use Stage 2, a new core objective requires that hospitals provide “ongoing successful submission of reportable lab results” to the State Departments of Public Health. As part of our Clinical Surveillance Solution, Persivia’ ELR portal can help eligible hospitals satisfy this requirement, while improving patient care quality and providing better coordination between lab personnel and clinicians.

Delivered on the Persivia platform using a cloud-based, SaaS environment, the ELR Solution captures all codes associated with diseases and conditions, lab tests and demographic data by leveraging industry messaging standards, such as HL7v2.X, and then delivers this information to the appropriate state authority.  As a trusted technology partner, Persivia is certified for Meaningful Use Stage 2 by an ONC-Authorized Testing and Certification Body for its Electronic Laboratory Reporting and Communication Portal.  Persivia’ ELR Solution has enabled the statewide collection of reportable lab results for the State of Massachusetts since 2004, which includes 98% of all hospitals in the state that utilize Persivia’ ELR portal.
