This is pretty good and I remember back when I wrote animage interface to work with Quest Labs that I about fell off my chair when it worked.  That was back when HL7 was still in it’s infancy and creating the crosswalk at the time was a lot of work, for me anyway as I never done one before.  Things are long past those days for sure with the sophistication that we have today by comparison.  Back in 2009 the company was also one of the first medical records systems to embrace cloud technology.
