HL7 Interface (Test Results)

Our new ‘HL7 Interface’ enables integration with hospitals laboratory system and INRstar.

The interface files INR readings directly back to the INRstar software in your clinic, from hospital laboratory system. With no need to manually enter the INR into INRstar, it saves you time and reducing the risk of manual entry error.

If you are having any issues using the INRstar HL7 interface please contact our support team on please contact our Support Team on 01209 710 999 or email support@inrstar.co.uk.

Test Results sorting


Following the wider introduction of Test Results (HL7 & PST) to customers, we were asked to add a sort facility to the displayed data, to allow a patient’s details or high INR readings to be located more easily.


Clicking a Sort icon will also re-fresh the list of results, so will include any newly received results.


The sort feature has been added to:

·         the date received column

·         the Patient details column

·         the INR reading column


The data can be sorted either ascending or descending.

We have also added a paging feature, if the number of out-standing results is greater than 10.
