Intelligent sample and order management
By using LAB-OrderManagement, you can integrate electronic laboratory order data from OrderEntry systems, evaluate paper-based laboratory orders, access materials data from loose material sorters and process all the order data globally in a single solution. The result: increasing efficiency with reduced manual processing, together with a significantly faster response to the sender.
LAB-OrderManagement enables the structured order recording of electronic and paper-based orders in conjunction with materials information via manual sample registration together with loose materials sorters. The module minimises the error rate that occurs due to missing samples or order data, thus speeding up the laboratory organisation's efficiency and quality.
Thanks to automation, the LAB Order Management software enables job registration in the laboratory to take place considerably faster, reduces potential errors caused by manual working steps, and significantly improves response and information times vis-à-vis senders. Simplified familiarisation of new staff with the receipt of specimens is an additional benefit.
Automated and manual sample registration
Maximum speed when recording samples through the integration of automation systems/loose materials sorters together with touchscreen-optimised, manual sample registration points etc. for special materials.
Integrating electronic order data
Interfaces to import electronic laboratory orders from a wide variety of OrderEntry systems – for document-free order processing in the laboratory.
Scanning and recording paper orders
By default, OMR laboratory cards and machine-readable laboratory orders are recognized and processed.
Sample and order management
LAB-OrderManagement is based on the fast separation of sample and order data. Each item of information is individually processed at maximum speed, then undergoes optimum preparation in LAB-OrderManagement for correction or direct export.
Expanded correction in VERIFY with materials data
The merging of data that is still implausible takes place directly in the correction stage. For each order, the required laboratory parameters, the expected material, the registered primary material and its quantity are available here.
Interface grouping during export
Regardless of how many input channels are present from paper orders, OrderEntry and sample data in the laboratory, the LAB-OrderManagement module processes this information and transfers this data to the laboratory system via a central interface.
The manual sample registration feature of LAB-OrderManagement enables the sample together with the sampling source and pre-analytical notes to be already registered when the sample is received.
After recording the sample number, you cumulatively assign predefined sample types to the order. After sending off the recorded sample list to the order, further processing takes place analogously to the data sets of the electronic sample recording.
Display and merging of the data subsequently takes place directly in the VERIFY module. During correction, the following additional data for each order is visible:
- Expected material (determined from the analysis that is requested)
- Primary material registered in the sample distribution
- Number of registered primary materials
Depending on the status between the order and the registered material, the user can decide in VERIFY whether the order:
- is transferred to a special clarification point for further processing if there are discrepancies, so as not to delay the collection/recording routine.
- is exported directly to the LIMS (Laboratory and Information Management System) together with the registered material if all the information is present.
