Distributing medical results securely for better patient management


//SIDER is a secure solution that facilitates distribution of medical results to medical clinics and the Quebec Health Record (QHR). It acts as an integrated system for the electronic distribution of results, facilitating the work of all those involved in the process of monitoring medical results, namely doctors, administrative staff of clinics, and laboratory and radiology managers. By leveraging our vast experience in the healthcare sector, we were able to identify the biggest challenges facing IT personnel and to develop a complete and secure solution to facilitate the work of all stakeholders, including full process tracking.

How does //SIDER work?
  • Lab results are transmitted to //SIDER in the form of HL7 messages (in compliance with the standard).
  • //SIDER validates messages received, transforms them into standardized schematics, and stores them in its information bank.
  • At predetermined regular intervals, the electronic medical records (EMRs) of medical clinics search for the new results through a secure Web service.
  • The EMRs confirm receipt of the results.
  • In compliance with ISO 15189, //SIDER allows laboratory managers to easily monitor the results transmission process via a web dashboard.
