At HealthLink’s recent eLab roadshow, Erik Jacobsen (CEO of Danish Medical Data Distribution or DMDD) shared the numerous benefits Denmark has enjoyed since scrapping its paper-based system in favour of electronic pathology ordering eight years ago.
DMDD’s WebReq service enables fast and accurate capture of information directly from a GP’s practice management system/EMR into a laboratory information system (LIS). Denmark is the world’s most advanced ePathology environment, with 80 labs using 13 different LIS systems and all GPs embracing WebReq. HealthLink has worked with DMDD to make WebReq available in New Zealand under the eLab brand and it has launched successfully at Aotea Pathology in Wellington. eLab will be available in Australia in the near future.
