Swift uptake of eOrders during lockdown in Nelson Marlborough
The Nelson Marlborough region has seen a swift adoption of electronic test ordering during level 4 lockdown restrictions, with well over 80 per cent of tests now ordered electronically from pathology provider MedLab South, a jump from 25 per cent last year.
GPs in the region can use the eOrder system developed by Sysmex New Zealand, which is integrated with the Medtech, Medtech Evolution, MyPractice and Indici practice management systems.
eOrders provides a direct interface into MedLab South's Ultra laboratory information system. Clinicians in the region also have access to test results through Sysmex's Eclair clinical data repository which is integrated into the South Island's Health Connect South (HCS) and HeathOne shared care record systems.
