The Patient-Centric Repository (PCR) function in Atlas allows the user to import demographics of a patient into their EMR database, saving data entry time and virtually eliminating ambiguities of records. Simply search the database using first and last name, and Date of Birth.
When a patient match is located, conflicting data can be validated and they can be easily imported, along with their demographics and MRN. This simple step saves time and reduces data entry errors, while virtually eliminating the creation of a duplicate patient with a new MRN. Once the patient is imported, ordering proceeds and labels for specimens are printed with accurate patient information.
