Rapid – Convenient Results
For years, the lab order writing and result tracking process has been characterized by delays, inconvenience, and inaccuracy. Traditionally, labs utilize either fax or basic web ordering and reporting applications. Therefore, when you need more answers, you have to wait, track down and make many callbacks that result from lost, incomplete, or error-prone processes, creating an unnecessary burden on already time-pressed staff, that in turn puts compliance and patient-safety at risk and creates complexity for physicians.
Moreover, by nature, care centers are a highly mobile environment – nurses and supporting staff are constantly moving between floors and units to perform routine tasks. In addition, space constraints are another problem, especially for aging care facilities. Even when labs offer web ordering system it means nurses have to hunt for free workstations, and if they can’t find one available, they have to mov on to another patient or task, delaying order entries and completion of medical rounds. Therefore, the traditional solutions utilize older workflow methods based on hard-wired systems that are inefficient by new standards.
Greater Accuracy, Speed and Convinience via State-of-the-art Logistic System
With our unmatched state-of-the-art logistics system, which is built on a highly secure platform, we have automated, mobilized and added real-time tracking functionalities to lab ordering, specimen and result tracking and reporting functions.
Mobility replaces time-consuming manual entry and provides flexibility to order lab tests from anywhere and anytime. Nurses and supporting staff carry readily available and truly portable devices such as Handheld or Mobile PCs with integrated barcode scanners.
Simple and Faster Order Entry – Either by scanning the patient’s wristband or using dropdown menus, pre-defined pick lists and auto-filled patient relevant data, the nurses and the supporting staff can quickly create, e-sign and submit lab orders, supply requests and schedule pick-up times.
Barcode labels for orders and specimens –
Each Order (lab, blood draw, and pick-up), generates a barcode label with order number to track or store a hard copy by printing out the lab order details.
Order Confirmations and Dispatching –
Once the order is submitted, the system instantly notifies the relevant client response team, allowing for quick confirmations, dispatching and scheduling.
Flexible and Efficient Scheduling-
Eliminate redundant data entry through faster and accurate lab ordering for patients with recurring tests.
Real-time visibility in tracking order status and test results creates transparency and improves communication between the lab provider and the care centers. It also ensures that critical situations are addressed quickly and eliminates callbacks and confusions. With our Advanced Applications – Mobile Data Capturing, Barcode Scanning and Field Communication tools – the lab order requests, blood drawing and pick-up schedules are tracked and updated in real-time.
Real-time Order Tracking –
As the order request moves from care center, client response, field techs to lab techs, nurses and supporting staff can use their Handheld or Mobile PC devices with barcode scanning capabilities to scan or enter order numbers in the tracking application to pinpoint the activities and receive up-to-minute status on order completions, task confirmations, logs and status notes – tracking all order fulfilling activities, changes and actions.
As test results become available, nurses and supporting staff carry a readily available Mobile Tablet PCs to easily find, review and print test results. Moreover, the staff can easily track patient progress with cumulative reports.
Point-and-Scan Simplicity – With advance search options, the staff can quickly scan barcoded order labels to quickly pull up the patient’s record and lab results – eliminating time consuming searches, pulling charts and phone calls to and from lab.
Automated Printing and Faxing – As the results become available they are automatically uploaded and are readily available in the hardcopy without having to wait or make unnecessary phone calls to lab.
