Integration Options Between TrackCore Tissue and Implant Tracking Software and Existing Healthcare IT Systems

Date: 9/24/2010

The TrackCore team is often asked whether or not TrackCore will interface with a hospital’s existing EMR, OR scheduling software, supply chain software or other healthcare IT (HIT) systems. Often that question revolves around specific software like Epic’s Optime, Meditech, Lawson supply chain, Cerner’s Surginet, etc. The short answer to this question is always YES.

The TrackCore system was developed with an open integration system that allows hospitals to interface with TrackCore using the most desirable method for a hospital. This could mean an HL7 interface, secure web services or secure FTP, which are the three most popular types. Only data relevant to a customer’s use of TrackCore is used in the interfaces, however, LPIT continues to advance interface capabilities and is constantly working on developing new means and methods, as well as collection routines for specific types of data. This open system allows our interface capabilities to be agnostic when it comes to a specific HIT application.

Below is a short list of several of the interfaces that are currently implemented:
  • Vendor specific item master data via FTP and XML Web Services
  • Scheduling transactions from Epic Optime
  • ADT Messages from Meditech via Web Services
  • Scheduling transactions sent from Sybase Ebiz Impact via Web Services
  • HL7 SIU (scheduling messages) sent via a secure HL7 courier application
  • Scheduling information from Cerner Surginet via a secure HL7 courier application
  • ADT information from Meditech via HL7 courier application
  • Inventory consumption information from TrackCore via HL7 courier application (for supply chain software)
  • Population of Cerner implant documentation screen fields using 2D barcodes printed in TrackCore
  • Population of TrackCore implant data entry fields using barcodes printed from Meditech
If you are looking to interface your internal systems with a tissue and implant tracking package, LPIT can provide the right solution for your needs.

For more information or questions about interfaces not listed above, contact LPIT Solutions at 1-866-574-8765. Information may also be requested on the LPIT website at http://www.lpitsolutions.com/contact/contactform/info.

Budget-friendly Applications in the Healthcare Enterprise

Date: 9/24/2010

On September 16, 2010, James Casavant, LPIT’s Director of Technology, gave a presentation at a Lawson Cloverleaf user group meeting on deploying budget-friendly applications in the healthcare enterprise. In the presentation, James describes how a healthcare facility or network can realize a solid return on their software investment by using a Software-as-a-Service modeled application like TrackCore in conjunction with a lightweight interface client like Lawson’s Cloverleaf Secure Courier Client. Solid ROI combined with high user adoption, quick deployment and a high value to time investment return; hospitals are able to meet their software needs in a budget friendly manner.

As a software vendor that strives to help make its customers’ realize a solid value proposition, we understand the value of budget-friendly software especially in these tough economic times. If your organization is looking to meet regulatory compliance with regard to tissue and implant tracking and you find yourself in need of cost justifying the investment, the presentation is well worth reviewing.

TrackCore Interfaces With Cerner’s Surginet

Date: 9/3/2010

TrackCore Software, product of LPIT Solutions, Inc., is able to provide customers with integration to Surginet, Cerner’s perioperative and anesthesia information system. This integration allows customers to fully utilize both software applications’ functionality, eliminating the need for clinical staff to have to document information into two unique systems. Through the use of the industry standard messaging method known as HL7, data is sent from Surginet to a Lawson Cloverleaf Secure Courier (licensed from LPIT Solutions) and then into the TrackCore application.


This process is in use by three medical facilities at the University of Missouri and reduces the amount of data that the end users are required to enter in order to meet Joint Commission documentation requirements for the tracking of implants and tissues.

Many more Surginet interfaces are in the planning or implementation stages and there is always room for more interfaces at LPIT Solutions. Any interested existing customers or hospitals looking for Joint Commission tissue tracking compliance software that integrates with Surginet should contact the LPIT Solutions’ TrackCore sales department at http://www.lpitsolutions.com/contact/contactform/sales/trackcore

TrackCore Interfaces With Meditech

Date: 9/2/2010

MEDITECH is an established vendor of integrated Health Care Information Systems and TrackCore is the market leading vendor of implant and tissue tracking software designed to assist hospitals in meeting Joint Commission compliance requirements for the tracking of tissue and implants. With many hospitals searching for ways to streamline their tracking and documentation efforts as well as ramp up their efforts to meet Meaningful Use requirements, the TrackCore team at LPIT Solutions has worked with a variety of hospitals to allow them to integrate the two systems to accomplish their goals.

Three facilities in the Christus Health system are exporting ADT messages from MEDITECH through their Lawson Cloverleaf integration engine into the secure TrackCore data transport application then into TrackCore. Currently over 1,000 ADT messages are sent from the 3 facilities daily.

Catawba Valley Medical Center is sending SIU scheduling messages from MEDITECH through their E-gate Interface Engine to the Cloverleaf Secure Courier client (licensed from Lawson through LPIT Solutions) and into the TrackCore application. Three facilities in the Catholic HealthCare West system are also in the process of implementing this HL7 interface option.

St. John’s Westshore Hospital, has taken a slightly different approach, and has created a process where they print a sheet of 1D barcodes from MEDITECH and then use that barcode sheet and a barcode scanner to enter data into TrackCore without the user having to touch the keyboard.

Many more MEDITECH interfaces are in the planning or implementation stages and there is always room for more MEDITECH interfaces at LPIT Solutions. Any interested existing customers or hospitals looking for Joint Commission tissue tracking compliance software that integrates with MEDITECH should contact the LPIT Solutions’ TrackCore sales department at http://www.lpitsolutions.com/contact/contactform/sales/trackcore .

Cleveland Clinic & LPIT Complete Enterprise Agreement for TrackCore Software

Date: 9/1/2010

At the TUG10 TrackCore User Conference, hosted by the Cleveland Clinic August 8-10, 2010, LPIT Solutions and the Cleveland Clinic announced the completion of an Enterprise Agreement that provides LPIT Solutions’ market leading implant and tissue tracking software to all of the Cleveland Clinic’s North American facilities.


In 2007, the Transplant Center and the Quality and Patient Safety Institute [at the Cleveland Clinic (sic)] implemented tissue tracking compliance software [TrackCore (sic)] designed to ensure adherence to Joint Commission standards for tissue transplantation and improve patient safety. This web-based program allows for bi-directional tracking of tissue from the donor or source facility to the recipient or other final disposition, including inventory monitoring, the ability to track the movement of tissue throughout the organization, storage of validation and patient implant records and the ability to monitor and log adverse events or donor infections so they can be properly reported. By the end of 2007, the tissue tracking system was in use at Main Campus and the three Ambulatory Surgery Centers for all areas using tissue. This is an excerpt from the Cleveland Clinic website and can be found in whole at http://my.clevelandclinic.org/transplant/services/bone/default.aspx.

LPIT Director of Technology to Present at the 2010 Lawson Cloverleaf User Conference

ARRA allows hospitals to receive financial incentives from Medicare and Medicaid for meeting Meaningful Use benchmarks.

James’ presentation will focus on one of LPIT Solutions’ core company values, delivering highly functional, budget-friendly software to solve internal and external customer business needs. The presentation will focus on how hospitals, in particular, can leverage Software as a Service (SaaS) applications like LPIT Solutions’ TrackCore platform in conjunction with the Cloverleaf Secure Courier client to create a fully integrated, budget-friendly software solution.

RFID & TrackCore – Join the Future of Innovation

Date: 8/30/2010

On August 10, 2010, LPIT Solutions closed the TUG10 TrackCore User Group Conference by introducing the latest evolution of its market leading Implant and Tissue Tracking Software. TrackCore RFID and Mobile was introduced as a means that will further simplify and streamline the implant tracking process.

TrackCore has partnered with hardware vendor Informs, Inc ( http://www.informsinc.com/ ) and is piloting the new platform at the Cleveland Clinic’s ( http://www.clevelandclinic.org/ ) main campus. The application introduces Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) read/write capabilities, 1D/2D barcoding, touch screens and mobile device capabilities to reduce the keystrokes required to meet Joint Commission implant tracking documentation requirements and to simplify the overall process.

A new desktop based user interface utilizes the best features of kiosk style applications and applies it to the regulatory compliance and supply chain in healthcare environments. The TrackCore add-on works with customers’ existing web application data, enabling users to access TrackCore from either the software as a service (SaaS) web-based interface or from the RFID and Mobile interfaces. Those that had the opportunity to preview the application, at TUG10, found the user interface very user-friendly and viewed it as another significant step in streamlining the implant and tissue tracking process.

LPIT Solutions is currently in the pilot phase with The Cleveland Clinic, and will be looking for additional beta / pilot sites interested in implementing this solution in the very near future. Any existing or future customers interested in investigating this solution should contact LPIT Solutions at http://www.lpitsolutions.com/contact/contactform/sales/trackcore and join the future of innovation.
