About Integrations

You may choose to integrate Ovation with other systems to more fully streamline your lab operations. For example, common integrations can

  • automate order creation
  • incorporate external results analysis
  • initiate billing
  • deliver test results to an EHR or patient portal
  • implement “send out” workflows.

Most integration objectives can be satisfied by writing custom code that calls our REST API or that is itself called by our webhooks. See the articles here and here for more information on this approach to system integration.

Depending on your objectives, you may also be able to use one of Ovation’s supported integrations. Most of these integrations directly integrate Ovation with a particular system, such as AdvancedMD for billing or Arkstone for reporting, to meet a specific need. We call these “native” integrations.

Ovation also offers a general, flexible capability to exchange files, often HL7® messages, through an SFTP host to achieve a variety of ends. When an API/webhook integration is impractical and a native integration doesn’t meet your needs, a file exchange integration is often the answer.

IMPORTANT Some powerful new file exchange capabilities are now available for all new customers and an "early access" basis for existing customers. Read here about early access features, including how to activate them. Within this category of articles, you can recognize the ones that describe these new capabilities because they have "Early Access" in their name.
