Order Entry / Result Reporting

Submit information request

Aquifer.OE/RR is one of the only order communications and result reporting applications designed from the ground up as a web-based, browser-hosted application.

What types of enterprises is Aquifer.OE/RR for?

Aquifer offers a broad feature range and has enormous implementational flexibility. It was designed to be aware of and intelligently interface with other healthcare software. Thus, Aquifer can reside at the hub of your enterprise, but is just as comfortable sitting at the periphery providing a single niche service.

Our prime target market is the vertically integrated community healthcare enterprise that manages hospitals, outpatient physician's clinics, and ancillary diagnostic centers (e.g. for lab and radiology) or wants to provide outreach services to independent clinics, and perhaps wants to make information (on appointments, test results, general information) available to their patients via a web portal. Of course, we can also serve an enterprise that is a subset of this, such as a physician practice, or a lab that wants to provide outreach services. Aquifer also makes an excellent inpatient order entry/result reporting system, with advanced computerized physician order entry (CPOE) features.
