Misys Healthcare Systems and Laboratory Corporation have struck an agreement that will help create an electronic interface to link physicians with electronic medical records.

Physicians using electronic data interchange and electronic medical records solutions from Misys will be able to connect directly to records at LabCorp’s central system in RTP, the companies said in a statement. The process will reduce phone calls and help physicians both place orders and receive results in a more timely fashion, according to Misys.

A beta service will be developed this spring, the companies said.
