Lab ordering and fulfillment solutions facilitate efficient lab work orders, blood draws and specimen collection processes, results reporting, and patient communication.

Vendors in this category take a number of different forms. On the orders side, most EHRs provide lab ordering capabilities, while infrastructure-focused vendors provide the underlying ordering connectivity, enabling integration with lab networks to streamline orders and results retrieval. On the fulfillment side, vendors support a range of testing options, including mail-order lab kits, in-home clinician visits, and local lab testing centers.
