Streamlined LIS Aims To Empower Labs of All Sizes
Product News Jan 03, 2020
CompuGroup Medical has announced new features and enhancements to CGM LABDAQ® Laboratory Information System and CGM LABNEXUS® Laboratory Outreach Solution.
CGM LABDAQ is an advanced laboratory information system (LIS) that aims to empowers labs of all sizes to optimize revenue and improve customer retention by increasing efficiency, streamlining workflow, reducing turnaround times and promoting patient safety.
The upgraded Workflow Management option offers new ways to sort and search patient and test data. The enhanced ability to pinpoint quality controls that have tested out of range is designed to allow laboratory specialists to identify specifically which test plates need to be re-tested. This could save employees time and reduce any waste that comes from re-running plates that are not in question.
"Even the smallest change was driven by user feedback. Reference laboratories wanted the location filter in Workflow Management to default to displaying all of a client's locations, and now that is the standard with version 19.11," said General Manager Carl Smith, lab division, CompuGroup Medical US.
CGM LABDAQ 19.11 is also accompanied by the release of CGM LABNEXUS 19.1.
CGM LABNEXUS provides laboratories with a cloud-based web portal that connects them to the providers they serve. Its tools aim to simplify the exchange of information, improve workflow, and could allow a lab to increase testing volume and grow its outreach business.
The latest update has been designed to improve the user-friendliness of the interface. Updates to the HL7 Activity Log aims to make it easier to see what's going on behind-the-scenes, along with improvements to the pending report query, order history, and organization setup proves.
"Pending tests and order history can now be sorted by received date, so users have another way to quickly find the information they're looking for," said Smith.
