for easy ordering
ARA allows for electronic medical record (EMR) interfacing with our healthcare clients.
An EMR is an electronic record of health-related information on an individual, specifically an imaging order request for a patient that is transmitted electronically from one healthcare facility to another. This process increases efficiency and accuracy which reduces medical errors and provides safer care for the patient.
Please call our Central Scheduling line at (512) 453-6100 to inquire about missing exams. In some instances the exam you are looking for may not be available for electronic ordering. Please be careful to select the exact exam you are ordering. Choosing the wrong exam can delay the ordering process and increases the risk of an erroneous exam being performed.
Some radiology exams have special requirements making them unavailable for electronic ordering. We are constantly striving to make as many exams as possible available for electronic ordering. When a new exam is made available we will proactively communicate with your EMR vendor to add or remove exams from the exam compendium.
No, this will result in the wrong exam being scheduled and possibly performed.
ARA has the capability to develop both uni-directional (results only) and bi-directional (orders and results) interfaces with most EMRs. Please contact your EMR vendor to determine what kind of interfaces they currently have available.
First, contact your EMR vendor or IT Department and report the issue, then contact our Help Desk at 512-531-7227.
Please make sure your EMR vendor or IT department is aware of the new provider and then fill out the online request form on the EMR Interface Request Form Page.
No, in order to process the diagnostic results properly it is necessary that only one order be placed per exam.
No, it is best practice to send the patient to ARA only after you have submitted the e-order.
Yes, but please contact our Help Desk at (512) 531-7227 prior to sending any test orders. We will need to provide you with the proper test patient criteria before you can submit a test order.
