Cancer is one of the clinical areas where the most spending occurs and where the greatest variation lies in quality and costs. In addition, Pathology labs are facing increasing capacity, quality and capability challenges.
Our mission of “Advancing Cancer Diagnostics, Improving Lives” is at the heart of everything we do.
The process starts with your local Leica Biosystems partners to perform a workflow analysis to identify opportunities to Improve Quality, Integrate Solutions or Optimize Efficiency. They will collect qualitative and quantitative data to allow a deep dive understanding of your actual situation and the goals you want to achieve.
DESIGN YOUR CUSTOMIZED SOLUTION
We will work together to customize a solution designed for your lab’s unique needs – an entire workflow, segmented workflow, traditional set up or an Informatics Solution such as Digital Pathology or Specimen Tracking.
Pathology solutions can encompass :
- Time & Motion Analysis
- Workflow Process Assessment
- CEREBRO Dashboards for workflow monitoring
- Efficiency Analysis; Single or Multiple Department
- Laboratory Design
- Laboratory Layout Optimization
- Lean / Waste Walk…and More!
Implementation of a Tracking and Workflow Management System – Optimisation of Your Anatomic Pathology Lab
Historically, anatomic pathology laboratories have been dependent on manual systems of tracking and data collection, which led to a higher risk of error. Heavy reliance on the LIMS system to determine the current stage of each specimen is limited, time consuming, and is not useful in real-time decision making.
Barcoding and tracking can be used to capture and manage data as well as help histology create standard work in its processes. Leica Biosystems believes these process changes realize efficiencies to aid the histology staff in completing the work in a standard and safe way.
There are multiple benefits of introducing a Tracking and Workflow Management System to your lab, such as: improved patient safety, better planning, enhanced quality and audit processes, workflow standardization, and improved productivity. The ultimate objective is to provide the department with increased confidence that, despite massive workload, Pathologists are interpreting the right slide from the right patient.
