Akumin’s interoperability platform provides a user-friendly and EMR-agnostic solution for referring offices to seamlessly connect with our extensive network of diagnostic imaging centers across the nation. This platform enables a two-way process, allowing referring offices to submit orders and clinical information electronically while receiving results in the same manner.
