9/29/2011 12:19:44 PM

MUNDELEIN, Ill., Sept. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sysmex America, Inc., a global leader in medical diagnostic testing equipment and information systems technology, today announces the release of the newest version of its Sysmex WAM middleware software platform. The Sysmex WAM Management Reports Module features new tools such as 'Point and click' navigation which enable the user to quickly develop on-demand reports, facilitating management decisions related to optimizing laboratory efficiency. The WAM Management Reports Module is now available for customers U.S. and Canada customers with Sysmex WAM version 4.1.

The WAM Management Reports Module enhances the lab's ability to measure the impact of automation and standardization projects by providing immediate insight to key metrics such as turnaround times, test counts, result validation rates, and rules and results statistics. From an operational perspective, clinical laboratories must intensely measure turnaround times, staffing utilization and efficiency utilizing LEAN principles. Quality is tightly controlled and it is enhanced with Six-Sigma methods to further improve processes by eliminating errors. Clinical laboratories must also scrutinize operational costs, staffing, workflow balance, productivity and a wide variety of other metrics that are shown to be enhanced by the implementation of automation and increased standardization.

"Given that the great majority of a patient's healthcare record is comprised of laboratory testing, operational efficiency in the clinical laboratory is imperative. The WAM Management Reports Module provides Sysmex customers with real-time data assembled from the LIS, Sysmex instrumentation and WAM. This data is then used to generate reports that can help the lab management staff make decisions that will refine its operations, while enhancing the impact of Sysmex automated hematology solutions" said John Kershaw, president & CEO of Sysmex America, Inc. "The Sysmex Lavender Top Management solution, powered by Intelligent Automation from the Sysmex WAM, raises the clinical laboratory's level of productivity and decreases overall operational cost."
