EMR/EHR Integration

Electronic health record integration connects the EHR software at medical organizations with other relevant software solutions used for operations. This is done so that healthcare providers and other concerned staff from various departments can access medical records for their jobs. Electronic health record integration is achieved through an application programming interface (API) bridging software. The integration of EHR systems is called healthcare interoperability, and it works by facilitating seamless electronic data exchange between software platforms at a hospital or clinic. In other words, integration enables patients’ health records to be accessed across other software solutions, allowing greater cohesion and productivity across an organization.

Telehealth has gone from being just an idea to being implemented across the globe thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic. A telehealth application allows doctors and patients to connect for a virtual consultation without being in the city. OSP can design specific APIs for integrating an electronic health record solution with a telehealth platform. This will enable doctors to access patients’ health histories during a consultation, view recent test results and scans, and arrive at diagnoses.  

Access to health history is vital for effective care, and with an EHR integration, a telehealth platform will enable doctors to serve their patients better. This would be especially helpful for patients who might not be able to travel.  

A practice management solution is a platform that allows providers to manage the clinical and administrative aspects of their practices. EHR software would form the heart of a practice management platform. OSP can build solutions for EHR and practice management or develop APIs for EHR integration for practice management. This will allow single-physician practices to have an aggregated interface to handle the day-to-day workflows of their practice.   

Activities like insurance verification, medical coding, billing, and claims can all be carried out by fetching patient data from an EHR at a practice. This would reduce the overhead significantly while also boosting the doctors’ healthcare management efficiency.  

A laboratory information management system (LIMS) is a platform for administrating operations at medical testing laboratories. OSP can design and develop both LIMS solutions as well as EHR systems. In addition to integrating the two. This would enable test results to be uploaded directly to patient records, allowing treating doctors to view them securely. At large hospitals with an in-house testing laboratory, this feature eliminates the need for physically printed reports, saving paper and time for handling them.    

Moreover, integrating an EHR with a LIMS makes it faster and easier for physicians to view them and make important notes. These, in turn, could also be updated to the medical records, leading to efficient medical records management.  

A digital platform for hospital management streamlines all the activities involved in administrative operations at hospitals. Electronic health record systems are the cornerstone of hospital systems. OSP can design and build APIs to facilitate EHR integration with hospital systems for consolidating clinical and billing workflows. It would enable doctors from every department to access EHR and view their patients’ health histories. Additionally, the staff involved in medical coding, billing, and claims would also be able to access the required data.   

In other words, an EHR integration with a hospital system helps clinical care and streamlines billing and administration. It also paves the way for integrated healthcare solutions where multiple physicians can coordinate care.   

Healthcare operations generate large quantities of data about both clinical and non-clinical activities. EHR integration software that connects medical records with broader hospital systems also enables the use of medical informatics and healthcare analytics solutions. These garner actionable insights from operational data and help providers make informed treatment decisions. OSP’s medical integration services can help hospitals leverage analytics to identify patterns that point to the causes of inefficiencies and take steps to correct them.   

The insights derived from analytics solutions help doctors know which patients are at greater risk and identify patterns in the spread of disease. This would facilitate better population health management during outbreaks and epidemics.  

OSP’s decade-long experience in healthcare technology has provided a keen insight into the industry. We can design tailored EHR integration solutions to suit the needs of all kinds of healthcare organizations. This includes large hospitals, ambulatory clinics, single-physician practices, dental clinics, physiotherapy, and mental health centers.

For cloud-based medical software platforms, we can develop custom APIs and help small practices adapt to cloud computing in healthcare. Moreover, we will ensure that existing HIPAA-compliant solutions will continue to protect data privacy after integration.    


When all the departments and staff at a hospital or clinic can work cohesively and exchange required information without hassle, they can be more productive. In other words, they can work faster and with greater efficiency. A digital platform ensures that accessing information for care, billing, or administration takes a few clicks, which means that a relatively smaller staff can do more. As a result, there is a reduction in overhead.  

A comprehensive digital platform incorporating all the healthcare software through EHR integration ultimately leads to fast and efficient operations. Providers would access patient data faster, the activities surrounding insurance verification, billing, and claims would be sped up, and the wait times would be reduced. This ultimately adds to a better patient experience regarding non-clinical aspects of healthcare. This also permeates into better care, which further benefits patients.

The existing software platforms must incorporate more third-party applications as a hospital grows and offers more services. OSP can offer EHR integration solutions that are scalable and which can accommodate growing numbers of solutions. This will be especially beneficial for hospitals looking to expand their services since scalable EHR integration would prevent the need for revamping the entire digital infrastructure.
