AccessDx Laboratory Teams With Jase Health to Embed Lab Processes Into Electronic Health Records

NEW YORK – AccessDx Laboratory said Monday that it is partnering with data integration firm Jase Health to embed lab processes into clinical workflows within major electronic health records systems.

AccessDx Lab, a Houston-based CAP/CLIA diagnostic lab, offers molecular services including COVID-19 testing, pharmacogenomic testing, cancer genomic screening, and respiratory pathogen panels. Jase Health, of Johnston, Iowa, integrates outside technologies into EHR products from Cerner, Epic Systems, Meditech, Athenahealth, Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, and others.
