The rollout of the enterprise STARLIMS Laboratory Information Management System is transforming the Army’s public health laboratory data management operations from a disparate portfolio of unconnected scientific applications to a powerful laboratory data platform that will drive operational efficiency and quality.

LabAnswer, recognized as a premier provider of laboratory informatics and scientific data management services, today announced the deployment of an enterprise Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) designed for the Army Public Health Center (Provisional) (APHC) and other public health regions within the U.S. Army Medical Command.

The U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) launched the LIMS solution in three Public Health Command Regions (PHCR) and one Public Health Command Districts (PHCD), including, PHCR-Central in San Antonio, Texas, PHCR-P in Hawaii, PHCR-Pacific in Japan, and PHCD-Korea.

The rollout of the enterprise STARLIMS Laboratory Information Management System is transforming the Army’s public health laboratory data management operations from a disparate portfolio of unconnected scientific applications to a powerful laboratory data platform that will drive operational efficiency and quality. The Army’s public health laboratories will utilize metric reporting and analytics to improve the safety and public health of military active duty, retirees, their families, and its civilian employees.

“The results speak for themselves,” said Adam Borenstein, Senior Manager for LabAnswer’s Government Services. “The user community and APHC leadership have been aligned from the beginning to realize an enterprise LIMS solution that makes a real impact on their public health mission. Our operational support metrics are proving that the team got the solution right and with exceptional quality.”

Laboratory operations are benefiting from standardized sample login, automated test order assignments, and quality data capture for entomological investigations, microbiological examinations and analytical tasks. These improvements lay the foundation to gain insights into laboratory operations, disease and injury trends, and potential health risks to military and non-military population. Laboratory personnel have shown tremendous enthusiasm for the streamlined work processes, observing up to 50% reduction in time to process a sample through the entire lifecycle.

Deployments to four remaining locations, Army Public Health Center (Provisional) in Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland; as well as Army public health laboratories at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington; Fort Meade, Maryland and Europe are on schedule through fall of 2016.
