Laboratory Information System
XIFIN LIS 5 is the only SaaS-based LIS platform that offers multi-specialty workflows and collaboration tools necessary to support precision medicine programs.
INTRODUCING XIFIN LIS 5
Increases laboratory testing capacity, shortens turnaround time, creates new revenue stream opportunities and makes it easier to connect to other healthcare partners. XIFIN LIS improves operational efficiencies and delivers flexibility necessary for today’s laboratories to thrive.
Extending the Laboratory’s Role in the Healthcare Ecosystem
In response to value-based and patient-centered coordinated care models, the healthcare industry is shifting. Accelerating the shift is the exponential growth in personalized medicine and new interoperability and reporting requirements. Since diagnostic insights have the potential to reduce overall healthcare costs and improve patient care – it is crucial that laboratories better integrate with the healthcare ecosystem. These demands are driving the need for more interaction and greater communication across all healthcare and diagnostic providers.
In this environment, an integrated LIS is a critical and central component in an efficient laboratory operations strategy. Laboratories need their technology infrastructure to support new initiatives, drive out inefficiencies, optimize their operations, and enable them to easily respond to business demands. There is no doubt that a laboratory’s LIS is the day-to-day workhorse and therefore it must be architected to meet these new demands. Those that are proactively addressing challenges and opportunities in the healthcare industry see their LIS as a critical success factor and an investment.
XIFIN LIS 5
XIFIN LIS is the most advanced laboratory information system available today. With the XIFIN technology platform as its foundation, XIFIN LIS facilitates the open but secure exchange of diagnostic, financial, and clinical information. It is a SaaS-based diagnostic solution that connects all laboratory operational components, including test ordering, lab workflow management, transcription, reporting, billing, and financial management within a single, easy-to-use, platform. It can be used as a stand-alone LIS that manages multiple test specialties, or it can be utilized to supplement the capabilities of an existing LIS that may not support a specific type of test.
Whether your facility is an early-stage molecular or genomics laboratory, an established pathology practice experiencing growth, or a mature clinical lab looking to gain efficiencies and create new revenue streams, XIFIN LIS is specifically designed to meet the varied operational needs and regulatory requirements for every kind of diagnostic laboratory.

The First Laboratory Information System with
Integrated Prior Authorization Capabilities
The First Laboratory Information System with Integrated Prior Authorization Capabilities
Each year, $31 billion is spent on prior authorizations, and 40% of prior authorizations are abandoned due to complex approval policies. As increasingly complicated tests enter the market, labs need more efficient ways to secure prior authorizations to efficiently give patients the diagnostic information they need, while also getting reimbursed without delay. In partnership with Glidian, XIFIN LIS is the first laboratory information system to have integrated, automated prior authorization capabilities to overcome this issue. When using Glidian and XIFIN LIS together, customers experience a simplified prior authorization process and increased revenue.
Submit and track all your authorizations through a single dashboard and receive real-time notifications when the status of a case changes. Approved cases will include dates of approval, approved codes, and authorization numbers - all without the need to fax or call health plans.
Our system incorporates insurance-specific requirements from medical policies and automatically updates as policies change. Our machine learning algorithm learns from previous submissions to prevent denials.
Receive reports for your internal metrics to measure the success of your prior authorizations and gain insight into reasons for denial. You can sort by insurance company, procedure, and submitter to improve your internal process.
Test-Specific Automation Gets You Started Quickly
XIFIN LIS automates and manages your diagnostic workflows—regardless of complexity or volume. With configuration driven automated workflow modules supporting 17 different testing specialties, it is easy to get started.
Amid changing healthcare models, pathologists are seeing increasing demand for comprehensive reporting, collaboration, and data sharing to support multidisciplinary teams.
Clinical and toxicology laboratories are under pressure to optimize operational efficiencies in an increasingly challenging reimbursement environment. Higher throughput without compromising quality requires a flexible laboratory information system that can manage significant workflow variety, actively manage worklists and sample progress and take advantage of electronic connectivity from the EMR through the billing process.
The advance in human genotyping and a transition to a value-based model is driving growth in molecular diagnostic (MDx) testing and complementary services. This expansion is creating data and workflow management, reporting, compliance, and specialty testing reimbursement policy issues that must be solved for today’s MDx labs to thrive.
The frequency and cost of adverse drug events (ADEs), coupled with a shift towards a value-based healthcare model is forcing a rapid change in the healthcare landscape. As a result, the utility and application in the clinical environment of pharmacogenomics (PGx) and next-generation sequencing (NGS) test is increasing
To be successful, PGx and NGS focused laboratories must be equipped to solve the data and workflow management, reporting, compliance, and challenging reimbursement policies that are being created.
Data & Workflow Management
Combining processing efficiency, workflow optimization, quality assurance, and data validation, XIFIN LIS enables laboratories to stay competitive in an increasingly complex environment. Additionally, the cloud-based SaaS architecture removes costly IT requirements, easily scales to meet the needs of laboratories of any size, and facilitates collaboration and information sharing across systems in a two-way "digital conversation."
In as little as 45 days, XIFIN LIS can be integrated and configured to connect all laboratory operational components allowing for a global, real-time view of lab activities and the automation of critical workflow steps.
This connectivity allows for a single point of entry for all laboratory processes via an intuitive, laboratory-friendly solution. Streamlining these procedures and increasing efficiencies allows laboratory staff to focus their time on improving patient care and outcomes, and less time on data entry and paper shuffling.
XIFIN LIS also includes the following Input screens and functions:
