Providence Health Care opts for Misys Laboratory to handle patient data

Misys Healthcare Systems : 17 May, 2007  (New Product)
Misys Healthcare Systems' laboratory information system, Misys Laboratory, is to be implemented by the Providence Health Care organization.
Providence Health Care is a faith based care provider that provides care to over 372,000 patients per year and operates seven facilities in Vancouver.

The implementation of Misys Laboratory at St Paul's Hospital and Mount Saint Joseph Hospital helps physicians to make better informed care decisions through quick access to patient laboratory data.

The $2 million deal supports Providence Health Care's commitment to create an integrated healthcare environment by allowing caregivers to share laboratory information within each hospital as well as among its other care facilities.

'This initiative will create operational and clinical efficiencies, and will provide a significant step towards service integration between Providence Health Care, Vancouver Coastal Health, and Provincial Health Services Authority laboratories', said Jane Crosby, laboratory service director at Providence Health Care.

'The wide spread implementation of Misys Laboratory places Providence Health Care at the forefront of creating an interoperable healthcare environment, since they will be able to share patient data among their care facilities', said Richard Atkin, president of the Hospital Systems business unit at Misys Healthcare Systems.

'We are pleased that the organization has selected Misys as its laboratory information system vendor'.

'This implementation validates our investment in product development to offer our customers the latest technology'.

By implementing Misys Laboratory, St Paul's and Mount Saint Joseph join other Vancouver healthcare facilities in optimising laboratory efficiency through Misys' SMART module, which encompasses specimen management, routing and tracking.

In addition to the laboratory information system, the labs will implement a microbiology module to enhance microbiology, virology, and epidemiological results communication, and a blood bank module that supports electronic crossmatching and donor unit tracking.

CoPathPlus will be used to integrate anatomic pathology with Misys Laboratory.
The Misys and CoPathPlus systems will be interfaced with Providence's electronic patient care system, providing seamless communication of lab orders and result reporting between patient care areas and the laboratory.
