For many years ComPAS has led the way in comprehensive data management and EMR interface solutions for pulmonary function labs.
All interfaces are written in-house to facilitate direct collaboration with information service professionals at the client sites.
Data from the central ComPAS database can be shared across the system-wide network of testing stations and physician review stations. Using Citrix® or other VPN access, physicians can complete full PFT interpretations from home or on any PC with an internet connection.
At the heart of ComPAS is Microsoft® SQL Server with incredible data storage capacity and all the advantages of database performance.
ComPAS EMR Features
The ComPAS EMR Interface is extremely flexible and can almost certainly be tailored to fit the specific needs of your organization, regardless of which EMR you are using. HL7 results can be transmitted as discrete data points or as a formatted textual report, or even both if desired. Additionally, a PDF (or TIFF, etc.) of the interpretation report can be transmitted a number of different ways, including:
- Base64 encoding the report into a field in the HL7 message
- Drop off to a networked file share
- An identifier included in the HL7 message with which the report can be directly queried from the ComPAS database
Simplified Development Process
Development of an interface typically involves the following steps:
- A series of one or more specification conferences
- Setting up of the test environment
- Testing of the various interfaces
Supported Interfaces Include
Interfaces are being completed on a continual basis and we have yet to encounter an interface that we have not been able to complete. Below are a few examples of successful projects:
- Cerner Millenium
- Veterans Administration-Vista
- Vanderbilt StarPanel
- A4 (e scripts)
- SRS Freedom Chart Manager
- Partners Health Care - CAS
Example 1: ComPAS Through to EMR
The images below show a typical routing from tests being completed in ComPAS through to interpretation in Task Manager and then finally displayed in the EMR. At the EMR stage, discrete data can be viewed as well as a PDF representation of the final report design from ComPAS. For reasons of security all ID's and names etc have been removed from the examples.
