With ApolloLIMS for Public Health Labs (PHL) you can:
- Exchange data with key community partners, clinic EMRs, and State and Federal entities
- Support multiple service lines
- Implement efficient workflows that enable rapid turnaround times
Providing a critical service to their communities, public health labs must be able to readily exchange data electronically. ApolloLIMS allows PHLs to connect with providers, the WHO, the CDC, the National Electronic Disease Surveillance System, the National Respiratory & Enteric Virus Surveillance System, and more.
Public health labs have the broadest range of testing of any type of laboratory – from clinical to toxicology to newborn screening to STD to environmental to food safety just to name a few. With over two decades in the PHL market, and with both state and county PHLs as customers, ApolloLIMS gives you the flexibility to accommodate any and all service lines.
PHLs juggle an enormous amount of work. ApolloLIMS is built to be configured to your workflow to maximize efficiency and speed. We offer various a la carte options specific to PHLs, such as our Bioterrorism module, to accommodate unique PHL needs.
The State of Public Health Testing
Public health labs (PHLs) are the cornerstone of the communities in which they operate. Tasked with disease prevention, control and surveillance, reference and specialized testing, environmental health and protection, food safety, research, and emergency response support, PHLs have a wide range of responsibilities. The testing performed at PHLs also helps guide public policy decisions.
To juggle this complex set of requirements, PHLs need a solid technology backbone and a vendor who will truly partner with the lab to support the extensive requirements of their work.
How ApolloLIMS Helps
The public health lab market is one of the sectors where we got our start, with our first PHL implementation done in the 1990’s. And as a result of our experience, our solution is as broad and comprehensive as any on the market today and our 100% customer retention rate of PHL customers speaks for itself.
With ApolloLIMS, you can exchange information directly with all of the organizations with whom your PHL works – whether it’s the EMRs of local providers, a laboratory response network, the CDC, or the World Health Organization. To improve turnaround time, you can reduce paperwork by automating ordering from submitters, integrate directly with all of your instrumentation, and access information within ApolloLIMS with quick and efficient ad hoc reporting.
