LIS

Build Status

A simple interface to medical laboratory instruments. It implements a rough subset of ASTM E1394-97 (or, possibly CLSI LIS02-A2)

It listens for test requests and results and forwards them via HTTP. It is intended to interface with the worklist_manager web application.

Developed for and tested with DPC Immulite I2500 (user manual) using the LIS specification version 600129-H (not available online, but a similar version might be available)

Usage

  • run the LIS server:

    $ gem install lis
    $ lis help
    $ lis -l /dev/ttyUSB0 -e http://worklist.example/lis server
    
  • now, whenever order requests arrive from the LIS hardware, lis2http will forward them to the specified HTTP endpoint:

    GET http://worklist.example/lis/{DEVICE_NAME}-{SPECIMEN_ID}
    
  • this should return basic patient information as well as test IDs for all pending requests:

    ---
    id: '1234'
    patient:
      number: 98
      last_name: Sierra
      first_name: Rudolph
    types:
    - TSTID
    - TSH
    - FT3
    - FT4
    
  • results are posted to the same URI as soon as they are received:

    POST http://worklist.example/lis/{DEVICE_NAME}-{SPECIMEN_ID}/{TEST_NAME}
    
    ---
    flags: N
    result_timestamp: '1993-10-11T09:12:33+00:00'
    status: F
    test_name: TSTID
    unit: mIU/mL
    value: '8.2'
