As more and more hospitals, laboratories and diagnostic sites incorporate new technologies in compliance with electronic medical records requirements, more complications arise. The process begins with each hospital and site choosing a hardware vendor that best meets their own needs and budgetary constraints. Though the facilities and their staff may be happy with their selection, they often find that the system that they have purchased does not communicate or integrate well with the ones that are in place in individual physician’s offices. When this happens, Half Penny Technologies is able to help. As experts in connectivity and systems integrations in the healthcare arena, the company has over a decade of experience in EHR integration, as well as in helping laboratories with test dictionary services, physician order entry needs and clinical data exchange.
The key to Half Penny Technologies’ approach lies in the depth of their understanding of the particular needs of healthcare providers. They have facilitated integration of clinical data systems in over 1,500 hospitals in the past two years, and have shown tremendous flexibility in their ability to work with disparate systems. They estimate that they have coordinated data exchange with over 160 different vendor systems, enabling physicians’ offices, laboratories and hospitals to share information seamlessly.
In an indication of the continued growth potential of the company, they recently announced an infusion of over two million dollars in capital investment by a combination of several diverse investors. The funding has been specifically earmarked towards the expansion of the company’s Lab Hub platform to a broader audience of healthcare providers. In addition to the Lab Hub, the company has also been instrumental in providing client facilities with mobile web access to laboratory results without the need to log in to a stationary system. Their utilization of cloud-based technology has them well-positioned to continue to serve medical professionals as their reporting and documentation needs continue to evolve.
