MEDIA, Pa., Aug. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Altosoft, an innovator in the field of healthcare informatics and business intelligence, today announced that Geisinger Health System, a recognized national leader in healthcare information technology, has implemented the Altosoft Insight for Pathology system at its clinical and anatomic pathology labs.
"Increasingly, we need to rely on real-time reports that combine data from multiple systems to better understand the status of our quality of service and lab utilization so we can maintain the highest level of service and quickly adjust as patient loads change. The old approach of working from monthly, weekly or even daily reports is no longer acceptable," said Al Shulski, Geisinger's laboratory information systems (LIS) director. "The Altosoft system enabled us to begin to build dashboards and reports incorporating data from all of these sources within hours of the software's installation resulting in a rapid and ongoing delivery of solutions to our users," Shulski said.
Altosoft's Insight for Pathology solution is an intuitive, graphical, point-and-click approach, empowering clinical staff and administrative personnel to take control of their data. Insight for Pathology provides the benefits of a rich library of pre-built analysis and reports while allowing for easy extension and customization to fit the unique challenges of their lab environment in a fraction of the time, cost and effort required by other companies' solutions.
The implementation allows medical and business professionals at Geisinger's clinical and anatomic pathology labs to create reports and dashboards on operational efficiency that they can share as part of Geisinger's ongoing efforts to improve outcomes for its patients.
"Organizations have increasingly realized that while their stores of data are greater than ever, the systems are far too complicated and closed making it too costly to actually get the information they need in a timely manner," said Scott Opitz, Altosoft's president and chief executive officer. "Accessing this data no longer needs to be a struggle; healthcare organizations that have implemented Insight are able to leverage the multi-vendor systems they already have in place, and quickly extract key data allowing them to turn it into actionable intelligence to deliver higher-quality healthcare."
Altosoft's Insight platform is designed to exceed performance and scalability requirements for even the largest enterprises, but its rapid implementation, cost effectiveness, low maintenance, and ease-of-use also make it ideal for departmental solutions, mid-sized businesses, and embedded/OEM applications. Insight can be installed on a single server or distributed across multiple computers for shared access and optimal performance.
