Healthcare organizations are looking forward to managing their laboratories to yield effectiveness in the processes. The sound interpretations of data assist to streamline entire work process in a lab through accurate data application wherever necessary. The growth and advancements in a lab contribute to the quality of care and success of R & D operations. With technology updates and advanced workflow strategies, lab experts are striving to upgrade their labs to achieve efficiency, accuracy, and quality of all the underlying tasks and test results.
However, despite of using expensive Laboratory Software Solutions, lab experts continue to face issues such as disintegration, cost, complexity and poor traceability of operations in their labs. The legacy systems are not able to provide the required support to the labs to generate results that are expected by the experts. The existing legacy LIS systems engender the following most common hindrances in the development of labs.
The solutions prevalent in present-day laboratories are designed to address limited issues and needs. These lab information systems are incapacitated to get updated to meet the custom, additional needs of clients. These standalone systems can’t work beyond their scope as these neither can be updated nor shifted to cloud-based systems.
These legacy systems involve time-consuming implementations as a result of which lab operations are inconsistent. Whether or not, their initial deployment involves costly investments, but the poor implementations cause the inadequate use of lab system, lab equipment, and other devices involved. These systems, in this way, are much costly to be used in laboratories.
The lack of core matter experts’ interference in the design of these laboratory software solutions makes them difficult to use by specialties. The intricate interfaces and limited features call for the need for increased staffing. The staff may need the training to be able to use these complex legacy systems.
Challenging to interface with third-party systems
When it comes to integrating disparate lab systems and equipment, these legacy systems have failed to connect the diverse tasks. The emerged lack of coordination obstructs communication and interactions among providers. These systems are very challenging to interface to. Thereby, the labs are inefficient with the poor quality of care and low productivity.
The Medical facilities and other healthcare organizations come across several impediments in the workflow due to above-mentioned shortcomings. Some of the effects of these barriers are
- Lack of Regulatory Compliance
- Degraded quality of care
- Inefficient monitoring and control
- Time consumption
eData Platform offers a suite of software applications based on multiple best of breed technologies. The technologies, our solutions rely on, gives flexibility to the health professionals to customize these solutions as per their changing needs without costly migrations. The firm has been regulated and advanced by industry veterans and core matter experts with first-hand industry knowledge to respond to the practical information management needs of the present-day healthcare industry.
eData Platform aims to develop and deploy solutions every day that are up to date with the emerging, new requirements of providers, specialty physicians, lab owners and other health professionals. While assessing the obstructions caused by the existing information management systems in the workflows, we constantly augment the design and functionality of our solutions including laboratory information management system to offer the efficiency of work processes.
The approach is to abolish deficiencies in prevailing legacy systems such as blunt alerts causing alert fatigue among providers. eData Platform addresses such issues and replaces them with modern features that in turn, increase the overall productivity of healthcare organizations.
The personalized LIMS designed by eData are interoperable, cost-effective and web-based solutions which can help you with –
Improved security and accuracy
Even if the health professionals have their LIS on their systems installed, they are not able to depend on these solutions solely. Data flow, access and management are not independently handled by these LIS. Manual interference involved gives way to errors. However, eData Platform provides a highly interoperable LIMS which ensures smooth information transmission with utmost security. The lab technicians, therefore, can ensure the accuracy of test results and adequacy of other dependent tasks.
For all the medical and research organizations, time is the crucial component. Nonetheless, their existing Laboratory Information Systems have been vain to save time with their inability to offer real-time tracking of test samples. On the other hand, eData Platform’s LIMS is modern software with upgraded modules for tracking test samples including registering outgoing samples and re-registering incoming samples. The collection and transfer of samples are just a matter of few clicks on a computer screen with eData.
eData provides robust laboratory information management system which makes the inventory, reports, financial, operational and tests available in various formats. Our modern lab management system helps lab owners to mine data and analyze latest trends and work for required projections accurately. These projections help them to make profitable strategies for their lab.
Flexible and Scalable
The functional scope of each lab varies and so does its requirements. Every lab may be required to focus on different scopes and ranges such as general business requirements, functional requirements, IT and interface requirements, reporting, data management, errors issues and regulatory compliance. The legacy systems prevailing in the marketplace are composed of a rigid design. To cover the constantly changing needs of labs and lab owners, they are difficult to be scalable in their functionality, composition, and characteristics. Conversely, eData Platform is a cost-effective solution which renders a rapid shift of functionality as per requirements by breaking siloed approach off of the conventional systems.
Benefits of integrating LIMS into a Clinical Laboratory with eData
If a LIMS does not integrate with other lab systems, the data it stores will be a standalone silo. Such a separate LIS accommodated in your lab calls a need for costly integration projects. Otherwise, you will be forced to underuse your existing lab systems, lab equipment and other lab technology systems just to adapt to your new LIMS solution. Instead of increasing the productivity, it may reduce it to a large extent.
eData Platform focuses on streamlining the workflows and on increasing the productivity & revenue by making sure that the existing costly investments made in a laboratory are preserved. The extensive amounts of data (tests, samples, patient info etc), related processes fetching that data and intellectual properties are the components that need to be preserved while integrating a LIMS solution into your lab. And the advantages of such LIMS solution by eData Platform are –
Our clinical LIMS makes difference in the efficiency of your lab operations. With real-time sample management tools, it analyzes and processes existing data and samples as soon as getting them collected and bar-coded instantly. Dispensing data quickly to the diverse processes helps to comply with the regulations and improve the overall quality of work.
The modern lab solution by eData strengthens the existing workflows by managing sample transfer. Transferring samples is crucial and entails registering samples each time taking them in and sending them out. In order to reduce the time taken on transfers, our LIMS solution comprises an exclusive batch-sheet based sample tracking model.
End Unnecessary Spending
Patient flow can be tracked well once all small or large processes are in-tune with the expected level of productivity. Moreover, with the scalable solution, the business can scale too. More coordination among all the processes without implementing any external integration project ends unnecessary spending.
