Show Me the Data: Siemens Healthineers Showcases the Role of Digitalization in Solving Lab Challenges at AACC 2018

  • New offerings from Siemens Healthineers leverage expertise,
    software, and open connectivity labs need to optimize operations.

70th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo, Booth #2812

At the 70th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo taking
place from July 31 to August 2, Siemens Healthineers will showcase an
array of digital offerings that turn data into actionable information to
address a variety of clinical and operational challenges facing
laboratories. Scalable IT solutions from Siemens Healthineers help lab
managers identify and address workflow gaps and optimize their
operations for increased savings.

Digitalizing Healthcare for Smarter, More Efficient Testing

The Siemens Healthineers Atellica® Diagnostics IT portfolio helps
labs digitalize healthcare with open, scalable solutions, advanced
analytics, and business intelligence. The offerings help manage
processes, data, inventory, connectivity, and clinical decision support.

Siemens Healthineers will preview the soon-to-be-released Atellica®
Data Manager
1 that delivers clinical details lab managers
need to make informed decisions. Atellica Data Manager operationalizes
data from patient samples and QC results to standardize testing,
optimize QC performance, and maximize the potential of autoverification
while reducing operator interventions, unwarranted variations and
errors. Open and scalable, Atellica Data Manager is built on the
powerful CentraLink® solution currently in use by 1,500+ laboratories in
more than 50 countries to help optimize clinical operations, increase
testing volumes and improve turnaround times. Tarja Puolakanaho, a
chemist at NordLab in Finland, participated in the beta testing and
remarked, "CentraLink is the best middleware we've seen. Atellica Data
Manager has all the same qualities as CentraLink and more … and with
better usability."

Siemens Healthineers will also display Atellica® Inventory Manager,
which provides automated, real-time control over reagents and
consumables across multiple lab locations to reduce inventory costs,
save time, and improve efficiencies. Pre-labeled radio frequency
identification (RFID) tags simplify inventory check-in, check-out, and
consumption tracking, and, when enabled, consumables can be ordered
automatically through cloud-enabled software.

In addition to offering laboratories centralized control and visibility, Atellica®
Process Manager
now provides advanced analytics and business
intelligence capabilities, enabling labs to gain real-time insight into
hidden inefficiencies in their workflow. Out-of-the box and interactive
reports enable lab managers to assess key metrics such as turnaround
times, testing volumes, problem samples, and automation utilization.

To address daily point-of-care challenges such as quality control,
compliance and operator certification, POCcelerator Data Management
2 offers point-of-care coordinators vendor-neutral,
open connectivity to more than 170 devices, giving coordinators
visibility into results, quality controls, operators, reagents, and
device data. The information is presented in a clear and structured
format. Proactive error logs and a traffic-light system indicate
potential problems that can be acknowledged with a single click.

Turning Data into Insight with the Siemens Healthineers Digital

Siemens Healthineers will demonstrate its investment in transforming
healthcare through digital innovations with its Digital Ecosystem.3
The open and secured cloud environment combines data from lab and
imaging devices, which can be leveraged by applications from Siemens
Healthineers and other partner companies to provide solutions to the
lab. Siemens Healthineers will showcase its first lab partner XIFIN4
and demonstrate how its Revenue Cycle Management solution helps to
optimize the laboratory's financial performance, by identifying
potential outreach and outpatient testing reimbursement gaps.

Transforming Care Delivery by Delivering Expertise

Complementing the company's digital offerings, Siemens Healthineers will
feature its Laboratory As A Business (LAAB) Consulting Service
designed to address clinical, operational and financial challenges of
laboratories, and help position the lab as a decision maker and a
powerful contributor to the objectives of value-based care in health
systems. LAAB recommends or structures sustainable solutions that help
achieve strategic business objectives by leveraging the capabilities of
the lab and informatics offerings, expertise, and competencies from
Siemens Healthineers.
