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.

Advanced Capabilities Extend the LIS Beyond the Laboratory

Multidisciplinary Care Team Collaboration

To support collaboration and consultation, pathologists, radiologists, and oncologists can securely upload as well as synchronously and asynchronously view and annotate whole slide digital images, DICOM, and other medical images associated with a particular case. In addition to improving patient outcomes, these capabilities also open up new revenue opportunities for labs that help offset diminishing reimbursements.

Universal Image Management

Real-time and secure exchange of medical images eliminates the need to ship patient images to other locations, drastically reducing the risk of loss or unauthorized access to patient data. Secure electronic access to medical images in conjunction with automated workflows also eliminates delays and reduces cost.

Digital Pathology Consultations

Pathologists can extend their digital pathology consultation capabilities outside their practice or hospital system to easily offer or solicit secondary consults in a sub-specialty.  Pathologists can collaborate and consult with colleagues over a secure network, which increases opportunities to work together on complex cases and improve patient outcomes.
