The path of a blood sample through the laboratory system.

Medat has been connecting people and medicine since 1974. But how does this connection actually come about? Laboratory software and the processes in the background are initially very abstract for outsiders. We at Medat want to give you a better understanding of these processes. To illustrate the path of a blood sample through the laboratory system, we have provided two animation videos for you on the Medat YouTube channel:

Auf dem Bildschirm ist ein großer Ordner mit der Aufschrift "DEMIS" und dem "Medat Laborinformationssystem"- Logo zu sehen. Neben dem Computer wurde eine Grafik eingefügt, welche den Weg von DEMIS über Labore und Daten bis zum Gesundheitsamt zeigt.

From 01.01.2022: DEMIS interface will be mandatory

From 01.01.2022, laboratories are obliged to report all notifiable infections to health authorities and RKI via their DEMIS interface. This should relieve laboratories and health authorities. If you do not yet have a DEMIS interface in your LIS, we will be happy to inform you at

Since June 2020, laboratories have been able to electronically report pathogen detection of SARS-CoV-2 to the responsible health authorities. Thanks to the electronic notification, the information on SARS-CoV-2 infections is available more quickly and more fully to the health department, and infection protection measures can be initiated promptly to prevent further infections.

The data can be sent from your laboratory information system to the DEMIS adapter. This translates the content into the HL / -FHIR format used by DEMIS. The reports are then validated in the central system and sent to the responsible health department in encrypted form.

According to the RKI, the aim of the DEMIS project is to further develop and improve the existing reporting system for infectious diseases in accordance with the Infection Protection Act (IfSG).

Electronic patient record (ePA)

The electronic patient record (ePA) is the central element of networked health care and the telematics infrastructure. The EPR collects all patient data collected in various hospitals and practices in a digital file. This gives patients a view of all relevant information such as findings, diagnoses or treatment reports and can make this available to their doctors, therapists and pharmacists.

Only the patients have data sovereignty: They decide whether and how they use their electronic records and to whom they make them available. Patients usually manage their EPR via an app on their smartphone or tablet, which their health insurance company has had to make available to them on request since January 1, 2021.

Since July 1, 2021, all contract physicians and psychotherapists must be able to read and fill in the ePA. The prerequisites for this are:

  • a TI (telematics infrastructure) connection
  • Update to ePA connector: Practices need an update for their connector ̶ so that your existing device becomes an ePA connector. So far, “gematik” has only approved such an update for one connector. For information on this, practices should contact their PVS manufacturer or IT service provider.
  • PVS module ePA: It should enable convenient reading and transfer of data from the PVS to the ePA and vice versa. Implementation has progressed to different degrees. Practices should also contact their PVS manufacturer about this.
  • eHBA 2.0 (electronic health professional ID) ordered

Certification ICD coding support

From January 2022, laboratories will receive further support in encrypting diagnoses. The digital helper is integrated into the practice software and is directly available to (laboratory) doctors when coding. We would like to inform you that we have been certified by the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians (KBV) for this ICD coding support, which will be valid for three years from January.

The background is an order from the Appointment Service and Supply Act, according to which the KBV must create binding specifications for coding and introduce them by January 1, 2022. Because the coding quality is constantly under scrutiny. The result is ICD coding support, which, however, does not introduce any new coding regulations. Rather, it helps to apply the existing, but sometimes quite complicated, regulations of the ICD-10-GM even better and to find the most suitable code.

For our customers, the certification means additional security that the ICD-10 codes are correctly transferred in the intended manner when submitting the quarterly to your KV and that unnecessary deletions can be avoided.

Archiving and exchange interface (AWS)

An archiving and exchange interface (AWS) of the practice management systems (PSV) has been mandatory since the beginning of June 2021. The KBV has defined an interface for archiving and changing the practice management system and published it on June 6, 2019 in the vesta interoperability directory.

Medat has implemented the required AWS in all systems, the correct implementation has been confirmed by the KBV. The interface is based on the international, cross-sector and open HL7 FHIR standard.

This interface makes it easier for practices to change the practice administration system. In addition, practices can archive patient data independently of their practice management system.

Changeover of VAT from 01.07.2020 – Important customer information

We have discussed the subject of “sales tax” internally and can provide you with a solution for private billing 1.7.2020 (ASCII, XML) if required. This consists of an update and an additional table to be maintained by your company, in which the information relevant for versions is stored in five columns (example see below). The VAT must be entered here in the cost unit. We need an own cost unit.
This definition table will also be used for the collective invoice. In all probability, we will be able to provide an update with a solution in mid-July at the earliest. The collective invoice program will use the same table for versioning the VAT rates. Please determine, independently of us, the cost units you are using, which are generated with a VAT rate and are used for VAT-charged invoices (collective, private invoices). If you do not have this yet, please create the cost units with us. There should be an entry in your table for each cost unit (analogous to the last three sample lines).

In the current program versions for 3.7, it will not yet be possible to mix different tax rates (19%, 16%) on one invoice. Therefore, the relevant billing periods should be selected accordingly if this condition occurs. The respective program will check for this condition and should terminate with a message if such a condition occurs.

We would like to draw your attention to the fact that the offsetting of VAT occurs most frequently in the collective invoice. There, however, the date is printed appropriately delimited anyway. Only latecomers in billing (subsequent change from “private” to “collective bill) can cause problems here and force a separate bill after the transition.

This means: You must always enter “07/01/2020” for future collective invoices with the “from date”.
Latecomers from previous quarters must then be billed separately, for example through “01/01/2020 – 06/30/2020”.

Private orders that have to be charged with VAT are usually individual orders that do not result in any excess within an invoice. Private invoices with different tax rates (based on the time of acceptance or import) processed within a billing run (XML private billing: “Ticket”) are no problem and should be appropriately assigned to the versioning.
If the order data of the same private invoice requires different tax rate versions, the program will issue a warning (XML private billing: red cross at the end of the ticket line), name the patient with errors in the error text, exclude them from the current billing, but generally continue the billing.

The patient must then be treated separately over a time division.

Please also clarify with your accounting department what exactly you need for the changeover.

We ask you to carry out the tests of the programs necessary for the update as soon as possible and on your own, as the short deadline requires quick action.
Changes to layouts will probably also be necessary in which the tax rate appears as a text constant in the layout. This applies to all billing variants. These text constants are replaced by the tax rates used in the case.

Our accounting colleagues will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Successful conversion of the Staber laboratory in Munich

The implementation of the Medat laboratory information system in the Staber laboratory in Munich was implemented punctually on July 1st, 2020. This enables Labor Staber to react in good time to legal requirements such as the VAT reduction, the introduction of Muster 10C and Muster OEGD.

The implementation went smoothly, as the functionality of the system was validated and verified by the laboratory in advance by means of a test operation with a mirrored productive system.

Despite the particular challenge of the hygiene regulations – due to Corona – the project was successfully implemented. We would like to thank the employees of Labor Staber and the Medat company for the constructive and successful cooperation and look forward to a joint, successful future.

GOfax.IP – pilot project by Medat and the Gonicus company

In a pilot project by Medat and Gonicus, the GOfax.IP module was successfully implemented and put into routine operation with our joint customer Labor Berlin Charité Vivantes GmbH.

With this implementation it is possible to combine the topics of e-mail and fax with modern IT. Above all, the module offers laboratory operators economical and reliable communication, as well as seamless integration into the laboratory information system through open standards. The technology behind the GOfax.IP module is a greatly reduced FreeSwitch installation for processing the SIP protocol and receiving the IP fax. The processed data is then transmitted to HylaFAX in the appropriate format. This virtualizes classic fax servers and creates scalable HA environments.

Even if fax has apparently lost its importance in the age of digitization, a closer look shows that it is still widely used in everyday business life. Due to the current corona situation, for example, thousands of findings were faxed to the health authorities. The GOfax.IP module manages to combine the fax medium, which at first glance seems obsolete, with e-mail effectively and inexpensively in order to guarantee economical communication, especially with many channels.

New Coronavirus Surveillance Ordinance of the Federal Ministry of Health (BMG)

The Coronavirus Surveillance Ordinance (CorSurV) has been in force since January 19, initially until October 31, 2021. In order to get a better overview of the variants of the coronavirus circulating in Germany, laboratories are to increasingly carry out full genome sequencing. The maximum possible number of whole genome sequencing per laboratory depends on the nationwide number of new infections in the previous calendar week. If this number exceeds 70,000, up to five percent of the samples tested positive can be sequenced. With a lower number of new infections, the limit increases to up to ten percent.

All information from the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians can be found here:

Medat customer “Labor Koblenz” detects mutations of the corona virus by means of PCR tests

The corona pandemic is still omnipresent in Germany. Medat laboratory information system works together with our customers to counter current challenges.

The long-standing Medat customer “Labor Koblenz” has been working to the limit for almost a year due to the corona tests. Now the employees of the laboratory are facing a new major challenge: new, highly infectious mutations of the virus.

Mutations can now be detected much faster by using PCR tests. What used to take up to five days now takes around 24 hours. 44 mutations were found in 574 cases, 41 times the English variant and three times the variants from Brazil / South Africa.

The new mutation PCR method saves the researchers in our laboratories a great deal of time compared to genome sequencing. The medical director of the microbiology of the “Labor Koblenz”, Dr. Thomas Mertes, is convinced that the PCR test helps to prevent the further spread of the corona variants.

Medat, Laborsoftware Hersteller, testet Schülerinnen und Schüler mit Lolli-Test auf Corona in NRW

PCR pool tests (lollipop test) in North Rhine-Westphalia

Since May 10, schoolchildren in North Rhine-Westphalia have been tested for the corona virus with so-called “lollipop tests”. These are simple saliva tests that are carried out twice a week in the study groups.

The tests are then carried out by our customer “Labor Dr. Wisplinghoff ”in Cologne.

PCR pool testing is simple and age-appropriate: the students suck on a swab for 30 seconds, similar to a lollipop. It is much more pleasant to perform than throat and nose swabs, and therefore ensures greater acceptance by the participating students.

Finally, the samples from all the children in a study group are brought together and stored as an anonymous collective sample in the “Labor Dr. Wisplinghoff ”analyzed and evaluated. The PCR method provides a very reliable test result.

The tests will initially be carried out until the summer vacation. All primary schools, special schools and schools with primary level in North Rhine-Westphalia have the opportunity to take part in the project.

Labor Staber Medizinische Diagnostik,

The path of the sample through the laboratory

Have you ever wanted to know what happens to a blood sample in the laboratory before the results come to you through your doctor?

Our customer, the Staber laboratory, shows in his video the individual steps that a sample takes on its way through the laboratory.

The Medat laboratory information system accompanies the sample at every step. The LIS enables the laboratory to run smoothly, fully electronic data exchange between the individual stations, it analyzes and prepares the information – all fully automated. A laboratory doctor then evaluates the information from the Medat LIS and validates it. Your doctor will then receive the results of the blood sample from the laboratory.

For Medat customers, full automation is not a vision of the future, but a reality today.

Medat at the digital trade fair – DMEA 2021

The corona situation in Germany remains serious. Despite promising advances in vaccines, it is not foreseeable how strongly and how quickly they can actually contribute to a noticeable relaxation, especially with regard to the hosting of trade fairs like the DMEA.
From June 7th to 11th, DMEA 2021 will take place digitally for the first time this year.

The motto of the fair this year is “Connecting Digital Health”: in addition to exclusive webinars and digital tours, the visitor is to be offered an extensive program.
Medat will present itself with a virtual fair stand to give you, as usual, detailed insights into the world of laboratory information systems and to answer your questions.

You can already read the complete program at The DMEA ticket shop will shortly go online on the digital platform.


Coronavirus variant: Further innovations in testing

Since January 27, 2021, variant-specific PCR tests have been possible in accordance with the revised Test Ordinance (TestV) of the Federal Ministry of Health (BMG). All persons with a positive PCR test result are eligible – including symptomatic patients who were tested as part of their medical treatment. The aim is to quickly identify the highly infectious SARS-CoV-2 variants.

What should be considered with regard to billing for laboratories and hospitals with the Medat laboratory information system:

If you want to carry out another variant-specific PCR according to TestV in the case of positive PCR tests (regardless of the type of calculation), you only need a unique analyte here. This examination may only be used for billing according to TestV and serves as a trigger in the OEGD dispensing program. The variant-specific examination must be recorded in the same order as the first PCR, otherwise a count is not possible.

The delivery file OEGD (TestV, record type LABTEST) is then created as follows:

If it is an OEGD order in which the normal PCR and the variant-specific PCR are entered

-> type of testing = 3

If the variant-specific PCR is entered in an order with a different accounting type (not TestV)

-> Type of testing = 1 (because the 1st PCR was not billed according to TestV)

Coronavirus, Medat Laborinformationssystem

The Corona warning app is here

The much anticipated Corona warning app has been available since June 16, 2020. It was developed by the federal government together with Telekom and SAP. This app can significantly help contain the current Covid-19 pandemic and make the infection process more controllable. Infection chains are recorded individually for each user and passed on to the app user completely anonymously, so that possible infections on Sars-Cov-2 can be detected as early as possible. An essential part of this solution is the secure transfer of a positive Covid-19 test result to the app. To make this possible, Telekom and representatives of the laboratories have been in close cooperation for several weeks. Medat recommends using the federal government’s new corona warning app, as it can help avoid long chains of infection and prevent infections.

Notice to our customers

Medat has created all the prerequisites for the transmission of the findings. Some of our customer systems have to be brought up to date with partial updates. Send inquiries about implementation at

DEMIS acceleration campaign by the BMG and RKI

In close cooperation with the A.L.M., the Federal Ministry of Health (BMG) and the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), Medat Laborinformationssysteme is working to support German laboratories in the corona crisis.

An acceleration campaign for electronic and automated reporting channels is currently being carried out from the medical laboratories to the
public health departments worked for Covid-19 test results.

At the moment, these are reported by the laboratories or other bodies to the responsible health authority. Here, the classic way via fax or email is used, which increases the bureaucratic effort for the people involved extremely.

For this reason, Medat is working together with the Federal Ministry of Health (BMG), the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) and the A.L.M. to accelerate the DEMIS project (German Electronic Reporting and Information System for Infection Protection) and to establish it as quickly as possible . The aim is to create a quick and effective solution for all concerned, which the Covid 19 test results must be transmitted in electronic form.

Two new tools: Covid 19 test results can be called up digitally

Patients can now access the test results of their COVID-19 test online. The startup DoctorBox, together with the Becker & Kollegen laboratory, which is equipped with Medat laboratory software, has developed a tool with which test results can be called up more quickly and the health care system is relieved. In conjunction with the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians (KV), over 1,950 test results have already been passed on online to those affected. The interface is compatible with Medat laboratory information systems and test facilities are now available free of charge.

With  Telekom Healthcare Solutions,  BS Software Development  has also developed an app that speeds up the process of transmitting results by four to eight hours. The Medat customer  Labor Dr. Wisplinghoff  from Cologne, who has already implemented the app in their system like around ten other laboratories and carries out around 5,000 Covid 19 tests daily. The COVID-19 app is free of charge for the laboratory and patients and is available in the  Google Play Store  and  the App Store .

Both tools directly access data provided by Medat laboratory software. In addition, laboratories equipped with Medat software are able to transmit test results from Covid-19 tests to the patient within 24 hours. This makes Medat laboratory information systems significantly faster than conventional LIS.

We present our new module: Turnaround Time

The module “Turnaround Time” (TAT) is intended to support our users with questions about the reaction and processing speed of their laboratory. “Turnaround time” means the time that elapses between the transition from state “A” to the next “B”. What these states are is determined by the options available. By default, the time in the TAT module is determined from the time the order is received to the technical release of the measured value.

All evaluations of the TAT module can be achieved with the module QuickStat – and far beyond. With the TAT module, everyday question and filter settings should be answered in a short time with little effort. The visualization of the data for the user completes the task of the TAT module. By means of a column landscape with navigation options that can be rotated in all three axes for closer inspection, we would like to directly support the path from the overview to the detail.
Individual orders as well as a set of orders to be defined via the settings can be used for analysis. For example, an analysis of the TAT of a clinic sender representative for a week with regard to the emergency parameters. Each order should only be counted once and sorted under the longest TAT of the participating measured values.

A “click” on a column of the displayed graphic shows the list of orders and measured values. For such an order, an individual evaluation of the order can now be started with an individual assessment of the TAT for each analyte.

The time and evaluation criteria can be adjusted as required.

The module is based on a CSV matrix of the counting data, the axes of which are typically the time of arrival of the sample as hour (x), the TAT intervals in minutes (y) and the number (z) at the intersection. This matrix is ​​automatically displayed as a 3D bar landscape and can be moved across all three axes. In this way, even if the column landscape is difficult to understand, all details can be viewed.

Evaluations can be saved locally if the result of the evaluation is to be retained. The boundary conditions of the query are stored in the CSV tables as commented text. In order to come back to a casually produced evaluation, there are usually four weeks. After that, the data about the self-administration of the system are deleted. The queries that arise in everyday life are too numerous and the reason is usually of no great importance that the elimination of the data products appears necessary for reasons of system maintenance after such a period.
