[DTNet / Practice Fusion] Integration = EMR

DrugTestNetwork’s online software application, a web-based cloud solution for drug/substance testing result data management and reporting, now integrates with Practice Fusion  (visit http://www.practicefusion.com ).  This interface further deepens DTNet’s presense as an EMR (Electronic Medical Record) system for drug/substance test result reporting.

DTNet hosts a number of subscribers whose primary business is the provision of services as a reference labs for pain management clinics, rehabilitation clinics and other health care providers.  These clinics and other providers who subscribe to Practice Fusion can now get drug/substance test results reported directly into their Practice Fusion account.

How it works:
Practice Fusion [PF] provides a desktop application which acts as the interface to the subscribers database.  When the reference lab, as a DTNet subscriber,  completes a test result,  the application can export the result to an HL7 data file.  When the HL7 file is saved to the PF input folder, the PF application pushes it directly to the PF platform.  In the current configuration PF only accepts HL7 files that contain a single test result which necessitates the DTNet subscriber to save multiple exported files to their local area network.
