- Lab Interface to labs you use (Quest, LabCorp, Unilab, etc.)

The more customized your EMR software is to the needs of an OB GYN practice, the less customization your medical software will need, and the less training, and re-training your staff will require once your EMR software is in place. It will also ease the migration issues between your current hard copy or stand-alone computer system and an integrated EMR and billing system.
