Background on autoverification and the LIMS
As the saying goes, “effectiveness is about doing the right things while efficiency is about doing things right”. And it has never been more important for highly functioning laboratories to focus on both measures of success.
What you need to know about lab billing integration
When it comes to managing a clinical laboratory service, getting procedures done on time and accurately is only part of the total equation. After health records have been acquired, tests have been run, and results compiled, someone has to pay for the work performed.
It is not a secret that the purchase and implementation of a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) can be both costly and lengthy, especially if the lab is brand new. However, once implemented, a LIMS will remarkably increase productivity and efficiency in day-to-day operations allowing your lab’s business to grow.
Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes (LOINC) and Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine- Clinical Terms (SNOMED CT) are two popular coding standards in the Health IT (HIT) industry, specifically in medical testing. Both standards, though different, attempt to baseline the terminology used by healthcare professionals across the world in order to avoid error when handling patient data.
Common Cents Systems, Inc. and Indigo Biosystems collaborate to create improved approach to clinical toxicology and reference lab LC/MS data processing and results reporting.
Over the past 3 to 5 years hosted software, or software hosted in “the cloud”, has become increasingly popular in the laboratory informatics space. Many LIMS vendors now offer a hosted model to their customers, however the cloud may not be the right choice for every laboratory. When deciding whether this platform is right for you lab you must weigh the pros and cons.
A Laboratory Information Management System, more commonly referred to as a LIMS, is a software system designed to help manage the workflow and daily operations in a laboratory.
(January 24, 2014) Nashville, TN- Common Cents Systems, Inc.(ApolloLIMS) and Translational Software have successfully collaborated to improve Pharmacogenetic (PGx) testing and reporting processes. This strategic collaboration combines Apollo’s platform for operational excellence with Translational Software’s PGx decision support system to enable their customers to improve turnaround time, decrease errors, and make test results more relevant for clinicians.
