Automate Specimen Management
It’s hard to track a multitude of specimens and manage their corresponding lab orders. As order volumes increase, error rates increase.
No modern lab operates efficiently without automated order processing. Polytech LIS interfaces with any EHR or web portal to automate lab orders. 25% of fax/manual lab orders have errors, 20% require follow up and 10% have an error in the lab order. EHRs and web portals can help automate these lab orders and any comprehensive LIS should integrate them.
But what about once your lab receives the specimen? An LIS can’t open the package for you (yet?!) but a comprehensive LIS should help you manage all those specimens.
The Polytech LIS automates specimen management. It interfaces with barcodes to prevent specimen confusion, tracks their location and records who has handled them. There are unlimited user-defined rules that can be set up in Polytech to trigger actions in the lab. Polytech automates reflex testing and can flag test results outside user-defined parameters for retesting.
Polytech reports can provide analytics regarding order quantities and turn around times, so you can identify bottlenecks and efficiently manage FTEs.
