Does anyone use XLTEK in an environment where they have HL7 export to an EHR/EMR, and if you do, does XLTEK export actual values or only a PDF of the report?

We use Sleepworks, but have only begun to explore the HL7 option. The process (and $) for constructing the solution is quite involved. It is not simply PDF export, but rather HL7 allows for real-time communication between your database and your hospital's EMR via XML.

We have gotten a quote, but have been told that XLTEK CAN ONLY export a PDF of the report, no individual values. And this is to Epic too, the largest user base of Hospital EHR. It makes no sense. Their literature is rife with mention of exporting values. Has anyone else heard this craziness?

I think they're talking strictly about the embedded functionality of Natus Database with respect to HL7 export. As far as I know, you have to have either your in-house IS or an external contractor write the code to have them interface in the manner you are talking about. Our IS built one for our Neurology people, but when we heard it was going to be about $25K to get it done, we put it off, as we're probably going to be changing EMR within the next 5-10 years. I know a few people there; I'll see if can find out a few more details.

What values are you wanting to export to Epic? AHI? Height, weight, BMI?

We have gotten the same $25+K and we are doing it, but I see no utility if there is nothing except a PDF attached to Epic which we already do by hand. It is ludicrous to charge for data export when only a file is exported. We are looking for standard fare of AHI? Height, weight, BMI and other fields. We would like to know which fields can be exported. There usually is a listing as the reporting engine. Each field code has an address in the XML file.

We are using the HL7 to export to Enterprise. We are also importing from NONIN Pox and RESMED ALink devices. You must have them build the tables for import. And remember any change in the report will require changes in the import tables or them will fail. So while it works, experience is showing the definite limitations and long term master-slave relationship. It is unfortunate. Not expected.
