Additionally, Misys Laboratory 6.2 includes comprehensive business intelligence tools, with reports for patient data analysis, as well as client problem tracking to provide personalized service to physicians and primary caregivers.
The release of Misys Laboratory 6.2 includes an assortment of enhancements, including components such as Outreach, Microbiology, Blood Bank, Blood Donor and Specimen Management, Routing & Tracking (SMART), in addition to the general Lab application.
