Cloud-Based System Allows COVID-19 Labs Massively Expand Workflow
As a growing amount of COVID-19 antibody tests are being administered, antibody testing efficiency is increasingly critical. Premier Medical Laboratory Services (PMLS), a leading commercial diagnostic laboratory, has found a way to increase their antibody testing capacity to process 50,000 per day now while decreasing their turnaround time - providing results in under 48 hours.
PMLS has reached this level of efficiency by implementing a cloud-based laboratory information management system (LIMS), OnGen. OnGen LIMS interfaces directly with laboratory equipment, automating data entry, quality control, scheduling, and billing, streamlining their workflow.
Because OnGen integrates seamlessly with any electronic medical record system (EMR) that hospitals and physicians’ offices currently use, testing orders can be entered and communicated directly to laboratory instruments with modules that provide real-time results.
That’s why PMLS can deliver antibody test results with an expedited turnaround time to physicians for their patients. Laboratories across the nation can drastically expand their workflow and bring antibody testing as well as COVID-19 PCR testing to an exponentially higher amount of patients that need it by implementing OnGen’s advanced LIMS.
Information about OnGen LIMS:
- fully HIPAA compliant
- Can seamlessly work with any Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system
- Has a physician outreach portal to ensure doctors can freely access information for their patients
- Allows administrators to set multiple levels of access, so unauthorized access to patient information is blocked
- Includes modules that automate quality control, scheduling, testing and billing
