Client Success Stories
Below are success stories from some of our satisfied clients.
“Path Lab boosts throughput” (As seen in Image & Data Manager magazine)
Douglass Hanly Moir Pathology decided on a customised version of Image ProFile® to suit their specific operating functions, assisting them in proceeding quickly and accurate test results to patients.
The imaging system provides Douglass Hanly Moir Pathology with the ability to quickly access their patient referrals, which are central to the company’s business processes. It has a simple interface, but provides powerful look-up capabilities. Image ProFile® operates by scanning Barcoded documents into the systems. These images are then automatically indexed, using barcode recognition, making them accessible to all users.
After images have been indexed, users can search for images using any index field or combination of fields. The system has custom search methods for different departments, depending on how they use the documents.
In accordance with Douglass Hanly Moir Pathology’s overall strategy towards leading technology, they have invested in a complete imaging solution. A customised version of Surity’s Image ProFile® has been installed at Douglass Hanly Moir to suit their specific operations, assisting them in providing quick and accurate test results to patients.
Healthscope Pathology required a complete image processing solution that could improve their work flow and the quality of services through faster access to request forms at their laboratories located in Melbourne and Adelaide. They also needed a system that eliminated the need for photocopying, provided document security, supplied a firm basis for any future work flow systems and gave a platform for the introduction of other technologies.
Healthscope Pathology decided on a customised version of Image ProFile® to suit their specific operating functions, assisting them in providing quick access to Request Forms and associated documentation. The solution was a multi-user imaging system based on a Windows NT configuration.
Image ProFile® has several “Pathology Friendly” functions to provide laboratory workers with immediate access to the information on the forms. The imaging system implemented provides Healthscope Pathology with the ability to improve their operations by the use of image processing, automatic barcode recognition, fast image display and the streamlining of processes.
Queensland Medical Laboratory (QML) Achieves ‘Paperless Pathology’ with Image ProFile® from Surity.
Queensland Medical Laboratory (QML) has achieved significant productivity gains thanks to Image ProFile®, a pathology-specific document management and imaging solution from Surity. Image ProFile®’s electronic management of documents has eliminated manual processing of the pathology request forms received by QML every day. The solution has enabled QML to achieve substantial improvements in productivity, including benefits such as reduced administration costs and ease of compliance. In recognition of the outstanding advantages of Image ProFile® which have been gained at QML, Symbion Health rolled the solution out to their other labs, including Dorevitch and Laverty.
"Today, Image ProFile® is a mission-critical workflow and imaging solution for Symbion Health’s pathology laboratories" Symbion National IT Manager, Pathology, Paul Williams.
Surity’s ‘paperless’ Pathology solution streamlines laboratory workflow at WCH.
"With Image ProFile® we have dramatically improved our productivity, and the solution is now a critical workflow tool for the laboratory" says Darryl Graham, Laboratory Division Business Manager, at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Adelaide, South Australia.
The Women’s and Children’s Hospital (WCH), is part of the Children, Youth and Women’s Health Service formed in July 2004 by the joining of the Hospital with Child and Youth Health (CYH). The WCH plays a leading role in improving the health of women and children in Adelaide, South Australia and throughout the world.
The pathology department within the hospital operates within the main laboratory, providing pathology services to the hospital and also other referring doctors and specialists, processing around 600 – 700 pathology tests per day. The implementation of Surity’s solution has eliminated administration bottlenecks associated with processing the hundreds of Request forms which arrive with the specimens. Forms are now scanned at Reception as soon as they arrive, eliminating paper, making the document image immediately available to all departments within the network. Data entry can be rapidly completed before the specimen is tested. In addition to the productivity benefits and cost savings, Image ProFile® meets NATA’s compliance requirements, as the secure original form image is electronically signed and archived.
