Anatomic Pathology Information System ‘HC LIS’
The Anatomic Pathology Information System ‘HC LIS’ is designed for the requirements of Histology and Cytology laboratories. “HC LIS” comes with advanced features, providing the pathologists a powerful software tool to manage the daily tasks related to Histology and Cytology tests. Eliminates the manual system of audit trails and paper files.
As we move from fee-for-service to value-based medicine, the end report is critical. But all that data that goes with it—from audit trails, billing, data mining, studies, and so forth—needs to be in a format that is usable throughout the health care system. The way to do that is to make sure your data is usable, readable, and interoperable.
Discrete data allows for communication between disparate health care IT systems much more efficiently than any other means available. An AP system should also have a rules engine and really well-thought-out logic. That’s essential to any system moving forward.
The Anatomic Pathology Information System ‘HC LIS’ is a dynamic application. The diagnosis library can be updated and modified at any time, so it can always capture new requirements and new classifications.
The ‘HC LIS’ includes a synoptic resulting mechanism. This is in addition to all the free text the pathologist wishes to enter. This codification, if you will, is something that users can build and create on their own. We integrate with the synoptic reporting templates so they are fully automated. The templates are updated to continually support current requirements. All the diagnoses are also searchable, even using free text. Any entry in the diagnosis library can be categorized using user-defined diagnosis codes or ICD codes, or both, which allows for easy retrieval.
The unique workflow that occurs in AP labs oftentimes includes the transformation of a specimen into additional specimen classes. A surgical specimen may become a surgical, molecular, cytology, and flow specimen—each a distinct class with distinct tests, and each of those test results gives the diagnostician more data to accurately provide an interpretation, classification, and diagnosis. These concurrent specimen classes are traceable with our products. We can match every patient asset across a continuum and assure that each asset is viewable, traceable, searchable, reportable, and retrievable.
The Anatomic Pathology Information System “HC LIS” either used as a standalone system or as part of an integrated laboratory information system ‘MediLab LIS’, it can share the same database with other laboratory diagnostic departments, providing the total patient’s diagnostic profile, enhancing patient’s consolidation.
Cytology test order starts with the accessioning of the case where the cytology LIS assigns a unique case number and, based on the specific tests ordered, assigns the exact number of slides and other materials needed to perform them. Labels with all necessary information are printed for specimen tracking and storage purposes in addition to the running of the test(s). Cytology LIS include features such as range checking and reflex testing, specimen storage managers to keep track of where and when specimens are stored, and workflow status monitoring, and will also offer additional management tools that will enhance a laboratory’s ability to perform competitively—such as client services modules and of course regulatory compliance. The cytology LIS software ensures that users comply with relevant regulations by enforcing established requirements such as slide read limits, screen mandates, and user access controls.
The Laboratory information system should adhere to guidelines set forth.
