ELMWOOD PARK, NJ – (Apr. 27, 2020) – OrthoLive, the nation’s leading orthopedic telemedicine provider, has announced a partnership with ELLKAY, LLC, a leader in healthcare connectivity since 2002, to enhance interoperability and improve efficiencies for providers who use the OrthoLive application to provide telemedicine services.
Telemedicine has experienced a rapid increase in demand due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. According to an American Hospital Association IT supplement survey, 76% of US Hospitals are fully or partially implementing a computerized telehealth system, up from just 35% in 2010. OrthoLive sought integration between its OrthoLive app and its providers’ electronic medical records systems.
ELLKAY is a nationwide leader in healthcare connectivity and has made interoperability a top priority since 2002. This partnership allows providers to pull all pertinent information from an electronic medical record into the telehealth app, making for a seamless telehealth visit for both the provider and patient. ELLKAY has successfully integrated electronic medical records to hospitals and health systems, laboratories, radiology systems, financial systems, outpatient clinics, rehabilitation facilities, and registration and scheduling systems.
“We are proud interoperability experts” said Gurpreet (G.P.) Singh, Vice President of Interoperability Solutions at ELLKAY. “We are focused on solving interoperability for our partners so that they can focus on their core business along with creating better user experience for the providers and ultimately improve patient care.”
