ChemWare is one of the few LIMS providers offering a single, off-the-shelf system that can address all of the varied needs of the Public Health Laboratory community. HORIZON’s interoperability facilitates the management of data across laboratory departments and the secure electronic transfer of data to other local, state, and federal agencies, including the CDC. HORIZON LIMS has been successfully validated for compliance with PHIN, PHLIP, and LRN-B interoperability standards, enabling secure, reliable, and time-sensitive exchange of public health test orders and test results between the laboratory and other public health agencies.
HORIZON provides test code definition, workflow modeling, and other business rule maintenance within a very powerful, built-in Rules Engine tool. The Rules Engine allows users to configure even the most complex public health test workflows such as TB and Influenza, handle mapping and maintenance of LOINC and SNOMED nomenclature, and manage inventory of media, kits, and forms.
ChemWare is a sustaining member of the APHL and an active participant in the initiatives to establish electronic data exchange and interoperability standards for the Public Health Information Network, data providers, and data consumers. ChemWare provided significant input into the draft specification for the XML-based data exchange requirements of the Environmental Response Laboratory Network (ERLN).
