Expert Anatomic Pathology Lab Chooses Best-of-Breed Laboratory Information System

PRW Laboratories

Our focus on solutions for the anatomic pathology lab has permitted NovoPath to develop a highly customizable system to support the extensive subspecialty expertise at PRW Laboratories,

NovoPath, Inc., a leader in Anatomic Pathology Best-of-Breed Software Solutions, announces the addition of PRW Laboratories to their growing list of laboratory partnerships.

PRW Laboratories provides comprehensive services in anatomic pathology, and is dedicated to the accurate and timely completion of each case. While offering excellence in routine primary diagnosis, the unique structure of PRW, comprised of consulting board-certified academic pathologists who are recognized as world-renowned authorities in their chosen subspecialties, is designed to provide expert second opinion consultation in breast, cyto, derm, head & neck, GI, GYN, hematologic, liver, neuro, pediatric, renal, soft tissue, bone, uro, and veterinary pathology.

As Medical Director, and one of the founders of PRW, Dr. David Rowe knew they needed an outstanding AP LIS, to complement their new state-of-the-art facility and world-class anatomic pathology staff. “We’re experts at anatomic pathology, not computer programmers. We were looking for a robust AP LIS that was both easy to learn and easy to use. Really, when it comes down to it, we didn’t want to think about using it … similar to when you’re driving a car that runs perfectly fine. When it’s running well, you don’t think about it being there.” Dr. Rowe continued, “We were seeking an efficient, reliable system that would seamlessly transfer all demographic and diagnostic data with great precision, for sign-out and billing, and we found it in NovoPath. They earned our trust and fulfilled every promise they made. We think of the NovoPath team as our virtual IT department.”

PRW Laboratories’ referring physicians receive highly customized reports via their choice of autofax or web portal using NovoNotifier. As their clients become more EMR savvy, PRW will be able to support all necessary compliance.

Another important goal at PRW is education. Their NovoPath AP LIS facilitates in the training of pathology residents and fellows, as they participate in the evaluation of both archived cases and those under current review.

“Our focus on solutions for the anatomic pathology lab has permitted NovoPath to develop a highly customizable system to support the extensive subspecialty expertise at PRW Laboratories,” stated Rick Callahan, VP of Sales and Marketing at NovoPath. “We look forward to supporting PRW Laboratories as they transition from a predominantly regional business into a nationally recognized laboratory.”
