ELLKAY Showcases Interoperability & Innovation At HIMSS ’19

ELLKAY LLC has announced plans to demonstrate its innovative new solutions at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2019 Annual Conference & Exhibition, February 11-15, 2019 in Orlando, FL. ELLKAY’s booth is number 3671.

The newest solutions ELLKAY will be launching include the LKClinicalDataExchange dashboard, a centralized repository for disparate systems data that organizes discrete and non-discrete patient data from across the enterprise at the patient level. Users can leverage this data to support analytics, reporting, ROI requests and health information management, as well as to inform clinical decisions and provide patients with a comprehensive view of patient health during patient encounters.

LKArchive, one of ELLKAY’s flagship solutions, enables organizations to decommission their legacy systems, retaining 100% of the data in one consolidated archive solution, while reducing legacy system maintenance costs by up to 80%. This cloud-based, secure, and dynamic archive solution supports single-sign on via the EHR patient chart, its active financial module supports full A/R rundown, and the document scanning module supports scanning and storing paper charts for a truly complete electronic patient record.

ELLKAY is also participating in the HIMSS Nationwide Coordinated Care Interoperability Showcase, demonstrating LKArchive. The showcase scenario demonstrates how LKArchive empowers a provider with a holistic view of a patient’s medical records, resulting in more informed healthcare delivery choices as a result of the access to this important patient data.

Its latest laboratory offering, LKLabOrderIQ, verifies the accuracy of data in laboratory orders as soon as the order is placed, improving first-time claims submissions success rates and increasing reimbursements. ELLKAY is at the center of the electronic ordering workflow, with a suite of laboratory solutions that deliver end-to-end clean laboratory orders resulting in maximized reimbursements.

“At ELLKAY, we are committed to making interoperability happen and are focused on innovation,” said Ajay Kapare, ELLKAY Vice President of Marketing & Strategy. “HIMSS ’19 is the ultimate healthcare IT stage to demonstrate how our solutions are responding to true market challenges that hospitals, health systems, laboratories, payers, and vendors face. We help them improve their workflows, increase revenue, improve patient engagement and be successful by implementing truly interoperable healthcare solutions.”

For seventeen years, ELLKAY has made interoperability a top priority, providing its partners with secure and efficient “data plumbing” for complete data connectivity. ELLKAY empowers its customers with innovative solutions that are on the leading edge of healthcare technologies.

The HIMSS Conference & Exhibition brings together 45,000+ healthcare IT professionals, clinicians, executives, and vendors from more than 90 countries for the education, innovation and collaboration they need to transform health through information and technology.
