Healthcare Middleware Drives Lab Efficiency


Clinical laboratories play a critical role in patient care. As such, laboratories are increasing test volumes and processing more data than ever before. Laboratories often use IT solutions like laboratory information systems to store and track patient data related to a lab visit. They may also use a laboratory information management system that is dedicated to sample management and associated data. However, managing laboratory information management software and hardware on premises can be resource-intensive.

Laboratories can now experience the benefits of healthcare middleware with Cloud-based solutions. Cloud-based healthcare middleware offers greater accessibility, lower storage requirements and improved security while still delivering the vital information needed to support patient care decisions. Institutions like Jefferson Hospital are using Cloud-based IT solutions like DxONE Workflow Manager to drive operational improvements. For example, Jefferson Hospital was able to reduce average test turnaround time by 9 minutes, a 27% improvement in efficiency.
