Clinical pathology – reliable diagnostics with collaborative functions
HUSLAB pathology laboratories processed almost 150,000 samples a year
In HUSLAB is important for the laboratory information system to support a frictionless work process and it is also important that it does not cause needless bottlenecks. Thanks to the new My+ system, we can eliminate some extra steps when making entries. The secretary no longer has to enter information from paper records to the information system afterwards, instead, the doctor can enter the information directly, Miia Saranen from HUSLAB explains.
HUS Diagnostic Centre adopted a new screening service for cervical cancer
The My+ screening service receives data concerning which women to invite for cervical cancer screening, either due to age group or risk status, from the Finnish Cancer Registry. No one gets left out of further tests due to human error when the system combs through the data. Moreover, attaching a histological diagnosis to the screening result is now simpler and requires less clicks. The system only provides relevant diagnoses as options. Susanna Ihalainen, laboratory nurse and HUS pap test coordinator says.
My+ takes reliably care of the preanalytical phase in the laboratory starting from the moment the test request has been placed or when the specimen arrives in the laboratory from another diagnostic or care unit. The specimen process is traceable and easily monitored throughout the whole process.
Regardless the specialty area in diagnostic units, data-analytics for monitoring the operations or test usage is crucial. The data-analytics offers added value for My+ specialties increasing the efficiency in laboratories through providing commensurate and real-time information on the operations of the laboratory.
