Are you starting up a new company that calls for the inclusion of laboratory space, or are you revamping an existing area for your lab and have determined that now it’s time to find suitable lab software so you can get up and running? As a laboratory manager in charge of the equipment and software to be used, you have a priority to look into software availability and to find the most appropriate applications for your organization.
Laboratories are typically humming like beehives, with so many patients coming in for a wide range of tests, often of an urgent nature. Some patients may be coming in to find out about very serious medical conditions, while others are involved in drug treatment programs and must be tested to ensure that they stay on the straight and narrow.
You need a computer system with software that is robust, well-tested under pressing conditions, and that is easy and intuitive for your team to use. The software also has to meet the latest privacy requirements as spelled out by HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996.
We currently offer two solutions for use in laboratories, MedicsLab and MedicsRCM. Read on to learn details about these applications and to get a better sense of which might be more appropriate for use in your organization.
