Apex provides 5 ways to enter orders. When deployed as a POL or Hospital LIS orders are typically entered in the EHR which sends the order to Apex as an HL7 message.
When deployed as a Commercial or Reference Lab many more options are available including: CSV upload, HL7, Mobile order entry, web portal, XML and custom (e.g. anything you want).
As part of the deploy process our Deploy Team will build you two order entry forms to any format you request.
The order entry subsystem provides a variety of order analysis services including: eligibility verification, perming lab routing based on insurance rules as well as
checking for consistency with CMS rules.
