At AACC, ELLKAY will be demonstrating several laboratory solutions designed to help laboratories compete in a value-based market. LKTransfer, one of ELLKAY's flagship products, is an interface infrastructure solution that enables laboratories to increase deployment speeds while cutting support costs. It can be used to support the transfer of any file standard via any protocol between any type of system. The well-recognized CareEvolve portal, acquired by ELLKAY in 2017, powers routine clinical, AP, genomics, toxicology, and other types of laboratories, providing electronic orders and results, clinical data connectivity, management tools, and chronic disease state monitoring between the point of care and the laboratory. Both products offer advanced features such as cloud-printing of laboratory-branded requisitions at practices and real-time eligibility verification at the time of the order.

ELLKAY will also be demonstrating LKeMPI, their enterprise master patient index platform that supports a longitudinal view of a patient's record across multiple systems, departments, and locations. LKeMPI is a data registry that maintains consistent and accurate patient demographic data, assigning a unique identifier that links patient's disparate records at an organizational level. ELLKAY's enterprise matching patient index solution provides tremendous value to laboratories by reducing duplicate bills for the same patient, decreasing instances in which the wrong patient is billed, adding correct patient ID and patient insurance information for faster and cleaner claims submissions, increasing operational efficiency and reducing unnecessary or duplicate tests, addressing new regulatory demands for data integrity, and more.

ELLKAY's live mapping solution, which laboratories have used in the past to map insurance codes across their physician accounts, now supports live compendium mapping and management. End-point agnostic, LKLiveMapping's API connects to any system in various departments, reference laboratories, hospitals, and practices to retrieve codes. Within the centralized dashboard, it auto-matches codes using intelligent algorithms, identifies code changes, automatically prompts users to remap changed codes, and allows the lab to manage their master code compendium, maximizing laboratory efficiency and eliminating the tedious and error-prone cross-referencing process.

"On behalf of the entire ELLKAY team, we are thrilled to be making our debut exhibition at AACC," offered Ajay Kapare, ELLKAY Vice President of Marketing & Strategy. "AACC is one of the premiere gatherings of laboratory experts in the world and it is the perfect stage to demonstrate ELLKAY's latest innovative solutions. We're committed to developing products that solve true market challenges, bring value to the laboratory, and achieve complete interoperability. Our current laboratory partners have already experienced the speed, accuracy, innovation, and execution that we bring to our projects. AACC will offer the opportunity for even more people to recognize the impact we can have in their laboratory."

Acting as a full-service solution provider for the lab's workflow and connectivity requirements, ELLKAY alleviates the stress of data sharing restrictions, costly interface fees, PAMA lab fee cuts, reduced reimbursements, and time and resource constraints. For fifteen years, ELLKAY has made interoperability a top priority, providing laboratories, hospitals, health systems, medical practices and more with secure and efficient "data plumbing" for all their data connectivity. ELLKAY empowers its customers with innovative solutions that are on the leading edge of healthcare technologies.
