Polytech LIS for Pathology

CompProMed’s feature-rich Polytech Laboratory Information System (LIS) helps drive accurate, efficient pathology test record management. With Polytech, you can expedite test record processes; interface seamlessly with applications or instruments (on-site and remote); and, automate data collection and reporting – all with zero downtime, and all in compliance with state and federal regulations.

Test Management Optimization for Pathology Labs

The Polytech LIS is ideal for pathology laboratories seeking to manage lab tests more efficiently, generate specialization-specific reports and contain test costs. All test management features and functions are available in a single comprehensive system, enabling quick and easy request, receipt and report of lab tests. Everything you need is at your fingertips in an intuitive, easy to use solution that enables users to quickly learn and utilize the system while staying in compliance with regulations such as the molecular CPT codes.

From histochemistry to microscopy, the Polytech LIS streamlines the management and communication of patient test data. It readily addresses the needs of subspecialization in diagnostic surgical pathology, and supports new lab product lines, such as lab medicine consulting, direct access testing, and decentralized lab tests (POCT, near patient testing, home testing). It supports voice recognition and dictation as well as telepathology to facilitate the transfer of image-rich pathology data between remote locations.

Polytech can manage any type of test data, including special stains, enzyme histochemistry, virtual slide telepathology, confocal light microscopy, immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, electron microscopy (with its various modalities including transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM), low voltage electron microscopy (LVEM), reflective electron microscopy (REM)) and molecular pathology as well as ancillary techniques.

Contain Costs while Increasing Capacity

Lab testing is one of the most cost-sensitive components in the health system. Implementing a digital solution that simplifies and optimizes test workflows helps keep costs within budget. While surgical subspecialties make pathology lab test management activities more complex, the right LIS can easily support increases or changes in testing activities.

Polytech lets your organization function in the way that makes most sense for you by supporting and enhancing test protocols between different pathology subspecialties and specialists, regardless of location, capturing all procedures and results for complete billing and tracing.

Even better, Polytech contributes to Lean, Six Sigma and process improvement initiatives by reducing the source of systemic errors associated with lab test management, thus helping keep costs down to sustain the lab’s financial stability.

Flexible User-definable Reporting

Whether your organization uses free text/summary style reports or synoptic reports or a mixture of report types, Polytech can streamline report creation. Polytech’s Custom Report Formatter enables an unlimited number of user-definable report formats. You can easily generate report templates that address industry standards or regulatory reporting requirements. Digital images can be easily included and placed anywhere on the report.

Polytech’s deep report functionality not only allows users to retrieve, analyze and report lab tests in real-time anywhere, any time, but also enhances statistical analysis, data mining, and billing processes. Best of all, Polytech provides the flexibility and nimbleness necessary to accommodate multiple remote testing sites while enabling centralized department level oversight and reporting.

Easy to Use Polytech LIS is Intuitive

Whether you’re a small private lab or a large multi-user hospital, Polytech delivers the flexibility and scalability you need to optimize lab test management. Polytech has over 500 individually controlled program attributes which allow it to function in very specific user-defined ways.

Because Polytech delivers an intuitive single screen for lab test entry, orders and result review, the learning curve is minimal. Support is built-in for specialized requirements, including Field of View (FOV), Full Manual Review (FMR), Atypical Squamous Cells of Undetermined Significance (ASCUS), Low-grade Squamous Intraepithelial Lesions (LSIL), High-grade Squamous Intraepithelial Lesions (HSIL), and Bethesda System for Classification (TBS).

Lab technicians and medical practitioners in any specialty, whether on site or remote, can quickly and easily start using the system from day one. And if you have questions, our system engineers are just a phone call away.
