Connection Process

Once you sign a contract our Data Services team gets to work setting up and configuring your interface with the technical resource you've identified. Depending on several factors; including the connection option chosen, the availability of your technical resource, and the practice's availability for testing this initial build process could take up to 10 weeks. Additional connections to EMA practices typically take about 2-4 weeks.

Most of our clients choose the Direct Connection unless they have a previous relationship with one of our approved Hub vendors: Ellkay, Halfpenny, Lifepoint or Agillaire. If you have such a relationship, please reach out to your vendor for more information.
