Qextron's Sentry System
The Qextron Sentry System utilizes a patented interface to collect patient
demographic data directly from a physician's office management system. By
utilizing this up-to-date billing information, the Qextron Sentry System
produces an accurate laboratory requisition in as little as twenty seconds.
The Qextron Sentry System utilizes advanced technologies to simplify and
streamline the order-entry process. Every element of the laboratory requisition
is automatically verified for accuracy, including test-specific requirements
based on the patient's billing method. To further simplify the order-entry
process and reduce the errors normally associated with poor typing skills,
Qextron developed an advanced Touch Screen Monitor system and virtually
eliminated the keyboard.
Medical necessity requirements (CPT/ICD-9 codes) are automatically calculated
and, if required, the appropriate "Advance Beneficiary Notice" will be printed.
The Beneficiary Agreement includes patient demographics, test numbers,
procedures, and disqualified CPT codes, with all the appropriate text and
The Qextron Sentry System eliminates the need for costly, preprinted forms.
Requisitions, laboratory results, packing slips, and reports print on plain
paper. Specimen and accession labels print on thermal labels. Electronic
interfaces provide for data exchange between various commercial laboratories
and the Sentry System.
