NovoPath Provides Sub-Specialty Customization: Arkansas Dermatopathology Selects AP LIS for New Laboratory

Share Article

Arkansas Dermatopathology PLLC selects highly customizable best-of-breed NovoPath, for their Anatomic Pathology (AP) Laboratory Information System (LIS) solution.

NovoPath, Inc., a leader in Anatomic Pathology Best-of-Breed Software Solutions, is pleased to welcome Arkansas Dermatopathology to the growing list of satisfied NovoPath clients.

Arkansas Dermatopathology is a highly specialized reference laboratory that provides expert diagnostic services on specimens from the skin, hair, and nails. Based in Little Rock, this boutique lab’s sub-specialty board certified staff serves local, regional, and national accounts, rendering both primary diagnosis and second opinions. Their focus is on maintaining a high level of quality, resulting in excellence in patient care.

When asked about what he was looking for in an AP LIS, Dr. J. A. Brown, Director of Dermatopathology, answered, “Having worked at a number of medical centers, I had experience with a variety of Laboratory Information Systems. At Arkansas Dermatopathology, streamlined reporting was high on our wish list, to help maintain our goal of 24-hour turnaround time. We also wanted variable report formatting (web-based, faxed, or hard-copy), user-friendly software, easy access to historical patient information, and a fully functional EMR interface.” Dr. Brown continued, “As a highly specialized lab, it was just as important to us to purchase a system without certain features. We did not want an AP LIS that was encumbered with dozens of bells and whistles that we’d never use. The system for our new lab needed to be fully customizable for our dermatopathology service. We wanted a “diet” AP LIS, so we would be purchasing just those features our lab needed. Prepackaged fully loaded systems were not cost effective for us. We found what we were seeking in NovoPath, and have been very satisfied. Our system is very reliable, and their knowledgeable staff is highly responsive.”

“Arkansas Dermatopatholgy offers a great case in point for selecting our best-of-breed system,” said Rick Callahan, VP of Sales and Marketing at NovoPath. “Access to a highly customizable LIS is critical for an AP lab providing sophisticated sub-specialty services, such as dermatopathology. NovoPath’s focus on the anatomic pathology lab allows us to provide the optimal system for each AP lab’s individualized needs.”
