Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 16, 2011
The American Hospital Association (AHA) today announced it has exclusively endorsed SCC Soft Computer’s (SCC) laboratory information systems (LIS). AHA Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of the AHA, awards the AHA endorsement to products and services that help member hospitals and health care organizations achieve operational excellence. SCC’s LIS solutions were selected for the exclusive endorsement following an extensive due diligence process.
SCC provides one of the most complete solution sets of LIS software in the market. It seamlessly integrates with all leading EMR/HIS systems. The complete offering of solutions allows health care clients to develop an integrated laboratory environment across different areas and easily allows their technical environment to grow as their laboratory needs expand.
“In today’s health care IT landscape, laboratory information systems are a major component of the clinical spectrum,” said Anthony Burke, president and CEO of AHA Solutions. “According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than seven billion tests are run each year in US medical laboratories, contributing to more than 70% of all medical decisions. Since lab results play such a critical role in health assessment, it is imperative that laboratory specimens are accurately labeled, tracked and incorporated into the overall laboratory workflow. LIS solutions from SCC enable hospitals and health systems to provide the highest level of care to the patient.”
SoftLab®, SCC’s flagship laboratory information system, is used in a wide variety of clinical laboratory settings. Utilization management, medical necessity checking with Advanced Beneficiary Notices (ABNs), specimen tracking, call lists, and comprehensive report management increase efficiency and quality of laboratory services. The fully integrated SoftLab system provides a seamless interface that links all clinical laboratory departments, computerizing and managing all data processing and laboratory activities, from order entry and result reporting to interfacing with laboratory instruments.
“SCC is honored to receive this endorsement, which was earned based on the flexibility and breadth of SoftLab, SoftMic®, SoftPath®, SoftWebplusTM, SoftA/R®, SoftCompliance®, SoftMolecular®, SoftCytogenetics®, SoftFlowCytometry®, SoftHLA® , SoftBank®, SoftDonor® , SoftExpressplus™, SoftID®, SoftID.Tx, SoftTotalQC®, and SoftReports® features and functionality,” said Gilbert Hakim, CEO of SCC. “These robust and user-friendly SCC clinical information solutions provide quantifiable improvements in clinical outcomes, workflow efficiencies, and return on investment. SCC’s solutions are helping the largest and most sophisticated hospital, IDN (integrated delivery network), and laboratory environments in North America, including many of the world’s renowned academic medical institutions, to reach peak productivity.”
