5 Key Benefits of a Unified LIS for All Medical Lab Disciplines

Outstanding healthcare begins with effective management of patient data from multiple sources across a network of medical care providers and organizations. Enabling health care providers to enter and access patient information via a unified, secure database provides a holistic view to better inform medical decisions and the quality of care.

In the current climate of healthcare, overburdened by the demands of the Covid-19 pandemic, labor shortages, and healthcare systems merging to become mega healthcare systems with disparate systems creating communication and integration issues, a modern LIS system with advanced analytics powered by AI and ML technology can make all the difference in the world.

Developed specifically for laboratories in healthcare settings, LabVantage Medical Suite is a Laboratory Information System (LIS) that integrates all medical laboratory disciplines under one umbrella, addressing the distinct needs and workflows across the medical community providing one solution for diagnostics, microbiology, pathology, blood bank, genetics/molecular, and veterinary labs.

5 Key Benefits of a Unified LIS for All Medical Lab Disciplines

 1. One Platform| All Medical Lab Disciplines

Chemistry, hematology, microbiology, pathology, genomics, and more – in one platform. All disciplines share common features, databases, and interfaces enhancing information sharing and cross-discipline analytics. Due to its modular design, LabVantage Medical Suite can scale to meet your needs by discipline.

2. Best-in-Class Workflows

With the built-in workflow rules engine, the LabVantage Medical Suite LIS can adapt to variations of laboratory workflows and incorporate your desired level of process automation. It provides the flexibility needed to meet the unique demands in your laboratory. The user/role-specific work lists and patient-centered views make the platform easy to use and learn, speeding user adoption.

3. Control Center for Your Lab

LabVantage Medical Suite controls the communication of all instruments and systems, bringing intelligence to the workflow and fully managing and supervising the entire laboratory process. This helps to assure that quality results are delivered in a timely manner to support care decisions and positive patient outcomes.

4. Seamless Integration

LabVantage Medical Suite LIS seamlessly integrates with any laboratory equipment, system, or outside organization in a convenient and validated manner. Integrations are implemented on open standards and interfaces, through HL7 or XML, or any proprietary protocol.

5. Compliance

LabVantage’s Medical Suite integrates fully with EMR, EHR, and pathology systems, and meets HL7 standards established for patient care. Instrument maintenance and analyst certification are fully supported to satisfy industry regulations. Importantly, consent management for tissue procurement meets HIPAA requirements, and tissue acquisition and distribution complies with IRB-approved protocols.

Why it Matters to You

A modern LIS Laboratory Information System (LIS) that seamlessly integrates all medical laboratory disciplines in a unified platform will dramatically improve the quality of patient care. LabVantage Medical Suite LIS digitally transforms the medical laboratory in the following ways:

  • Provides one solution for diagnostics, microbiology, pathology, blood bank, genetics/molecular, and veterinary labs.
  • Streamlines laboratory operations by automating routine tasks and processes, reducing errors and overall costs.
  • Advanced workflow management capabilities increases efficiency, improves your lab work, and therefore the safety and quality of patient care.
