ELLKAY aiding increased COVID-19 testing by providing rapid interface deployment to support electronic resulting and state reporting

May 16, 2020

Over 1.6 million COVID-19 test results were processed in April 2020 through ELLKAY's technology platforms, which is supporting laboratories through its LKCOVID-19 Platform. The platform provides increased connectivity with rapid deployment of COVID-19 testing, results, and state reporting.

In addition to providing comprehensive support to their healthcare partners facing unique challenges related to COVID-19, ELLKAY is offering rapid interface deployment and connectivity of the LKCOVID-19 Platform, which allows for electronic ordering and resulting portal with online delivery, accelerated bi-directional EMR interfaces, support for patient service centers, pop-up testing centers, drive-thru specimen collection locations, and long-term care facility ordering with rosters and draw lists. Additionally, the LKCOVID-19 Platform allows for state health departments reporting from the platform in real time.

Kamal Patel, Chief Executive Officer at ELLKAY said, "We are proud to do our part by providing speed and stability for the transmission of data. Our goal is to reduce the burden on laboratories, connecting them and providers with fast, reliable, high-volume interfaces for orders, results, and reporting."

Acutis Diagnostics, a specialized clinical lab in East Northport, NY, was one of the first laboratories to implement COVID-19 testing. They were grateful for the expedited deployment of ELLKAY's interface and rapid integration with physicians' electronic medical records (EMRs) to allow broad COVID-19 testing early on.

Jonathan Dobyns, Director of Program Management & Technology of Acutis Diagnostics, said, "ELLKAY has made it seamless to connect to dozens of physicians' platforms with providing standard operational solutions in irregular environments. The synergetic and streamlined approach that ELLKAY delivers on, pushes our laboratory services to be more efficient than ever. At a time when our clients need us the most, ELLKAY has proven to be the right technological counterpart to sync up with our R&D and business demands, along with the world's."

LetsGetChecked, a direct-to-consumer at-home health testing and insights company, has also partnered with ELLKAY for delivery of their COVID-19 testing results. Peter Foley, CEO of LetsGetChecked, said, "Providing critical access to COVID-19 testing requires rapid solutions, without compromising the integrity of the data and results. ELLKAY has been instrumental in enabling us to rapidly deploy our services during these unconventional times. They have allowed us to focus our efforts on tailoring workflows that best suit the individual needs of our clients, who can in turn concentrate their efforts on treating patients."

 Philippe Flamant, Vice President of Solutions Engineering at ELLKAY, said, "Our current lab partners have been able to quickly leverage our CareEvolve platform as a comprehensive solution for COVID-19 testing, results, and state reporting. Of course, the vital need for rapid interface deployment extends beyond our current partners, and we have been able to also help those labs by standing up our LKCOVID-19 Platform, and getting them up and running within 48 hours so there is no delay for COVID-19 testing."
