Allscripts Results Interface
This page will cover the various components of a Results Interface into Allscripts. Results are commonly lab and radiology results.
Results can tie back to existing orders within Allscripts. This allows the orders to complete. This is setup with each interface deployed at a particular group. Check with your Interface Analyst to see which, if any, are used on your results interfaces.
There are two ways that results can match back:
- Order Number - the Order Number EXT generated from Allscripts is sent back with the results. The Order Number is tied directly to a specific order - a specific CBC order in a patient's chart. Note: if the order code on the order does not match the order code on the result, the result will not close the order.
- Requisition Number - the Req Number EXT generated from Allscripts is sent back with the results. The Requisition Number is tied one or more orders - all orders on a single requisition. A requisition is defined by the Patient, Encounter, Performing Location and Ordering Provider.
