These new features improve billing practices and enhance integration with EHR/EMR systems through the HL7 protocol.

[#21957] New search filters and grid columns for HL7 Requests

In the latest release, we have made several improvements in the HL7 Requests module:

  • New search filters Date of service and External service ID (under the Request section)
  • A new grid column External service ID
  • The Created date search filter has been renamed as Received date and the Processed at grid column has been renamed as Processed date
  • The ID and Filename search filters have been moved from the General section to the Request

This update is meant to make it easier for you to manage incoming orders from EMR systems.
