Web-Based Software Platform Manages Lab Information

AACC 2012: A new integrated web-based software platform manages large amounts of information flowing through the lab.

OneLab, a new Web-based laboratory informatics solution, is a configurable platform that allows labs of any size to standardize processes across numerous locations and automate routine procedures, such as sample management and tracking, as well as test result review and approval. This new information management capability can improve efficiency and productivity while reducing errors.

By uniting most of a laboratory's information and decision tools into one system, OneLab allows labs to manage data with a single user interface. The solution comprises three applications: Smart Center, Inventory Manager, and Decision Center, which Labs can use to manage data with a single user interface.

The Smart Center is a Web-based laboratory process management and control application and the heart of the OneLab platform. Inventory Manager is an inventory tracking and order management system that utilizes Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). Decision Center, a business performance application, brings together data from different sources to optimize decision-making. Using database technology, data can be merged from multiple sources and quickly structured into visually accessible formats.

Abbott (Abbott Park, IL, USA) introduced OneLab in Australia, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, United Kingdom, and Spain. Additional launches, including the United States, are scheduled for later in 2012 and 2013.

Ulf Oesinghaus, deputy pharmacy manager, laboratory director of strategic purchasing, University of Medicine Gottingen, (Gottingen, Germany), said, "To address challenges posed by cost pressures and staff shortages, labs want informatics solutions that help them expedite test result processing and transmit clinical information clearly and rapidly to physicians. A reliable and easy-to-use informatics system can achieve productivity, clear communication between the laboratory and clinicians, and cost and labor savings to improve the laboratory’s efficiency and performance within any health care setting." He continued, "To address challenges posed by cost pressures and staff shortages, labs want informatics solutions that help them facilitate test result processing and transmit clinical information clearly and rapidly to physicians. A reliable and easy-to-use informatics system can achieve productivity, clear communication between the laboratory and clinicians, and cost and labor savings to improve the laboratory’s efficiency and performance within any health care setting."
