Laboratory

Connecting labs to the clinical community

Up to 80 percent of all diagnostic decisions are informed by lab test results and automating the laboratory setting is where it all began for Cerner; it’s in our DNA. Built on robust scalable technology, our laboratory solutions are used worldwide in all conceivable configurations from single site limited disciplines to multi-site full service labs. They are designed to reduce manual steps in the lab workflow, making information easier to share with your colleagues. We continuously broaden functionality and usability within the laboratory through regular software releases and ongoing strategic partnership development.

Streamline your lab

Accuracy and speed are essential components of a laboratory service. The Cerner laboratory solutions can automate clinical, financial, and managerial processes in the clinical laboratory. Our PathNet® application set is designed to automate the workflow to provide an efficient and quality service. Use of real-time dashboards assist with demand management, monitoring workflow and reducing turnaround times, which in turn contribute to reducing costs and improving the quality of patient care. Supporting point of care testing improves the service experience for users and patients.

A seamless transition

PathNet operates within Cerner Millennium®, so information is seamlessly linked to the patient’s EHR. Using electronic requesting and resulting across the healthcare system ensures that diagnostic information is available to all relevant professionals when and where they need it, whilst maintaining a full audit trail of those specimens and results. Our solution receives regular upgrades and fulfils the needs of pathology departments; providing decision support, increasing compliance to standards and reducing transcription errors. Lab results can be viewed alongside treatment plans, improving patient prognosis and reducing risk for staff and patients.

Easier external collaboration

Our solutions are designed to help you manage your laboratory logistical operations, including specimen collection services, client supply distributions and phlebotomy scheduling. Automation and optimisation of courier routes allows you to keep track of specimens that have been dispatched and prevent oversupply, presenting you with the opportunity to have the most efficient lab operation possible.

FAQs

How do Cerner’s laboratory solutions create efficiencies?

Cerner remains focused on optimising the workflow of the modern laboratory. We strive to provide opportunities for minimising manual interaction for lab scientists through capabilities such as auto-verification and automatic no-growth reporting.

Cerner offers a suite of solutions targeted toward the key segments of the complex laboratory: blood sciences, microbiology, cellular pathology, molecular diagnostics, and laboratory logistical services. Cerner also offers a reference lab network partner programme that allows you to collaborate with Cerner and other reference labs to support the sharing of information across your own lab network.

No. Although many of Cerner’s laboratory solutions are built on the Millennium platform, Cerner’s laboratory solutions are EHR agnostic. You can use them in your standalone lab or health system lab, with or without EHR interfacing.
