Information Systems Connectivity
Laboratory Alliance provides computerized patient results at the fingertips of those directly responsible for patient care. We provide a strong communications link between all our partners through the use of multiple commercial laboratory connectivity products.
Laboratory Alliance will automatically fax clinical reports to a designated in-office fax location at a specified time determined by our customer. Hard copy originals can be mailed or hand delivered via the courier at a later time.
Laboratory Alliance can provide a dedicated remote printer at the customer location. The printer provides an efficient means of delivering secure reports anywhere that they are needed.
