Misys Healthcare Systems this week launched its Misys Laboratory-Collection Manager. The clinical lab software application uses handheld technology devices to assist healthcare professionals in automating specimen collection and print labeling at the bedside. The result is increased accuracy of patient identification, specimen data entry and tube labeling at the point of care.
According to Misys, ThedaCare, an integrated delivery network (IDN) serving Northeastern Wisconsin, is among the first Misys customers to use Collection Manager within their daily laboratory workflow. ThedaCare is a community health system consisting of three hospitals: Appleton Medical Center, Theda Clark Medical Center and New London Family Medical Center.
