NovoPath has announced support for the Citrix XenApp Platform to enable anywhere, anytime information access for its NovoPath anatomic pathology (AP) laboratory information system (LIS). This is in addition to NovoPath’s longstanding support of the Microsoft Terminal Services Platform. Utilizing these technologies, laboratory professionals can securely manage cases outside of the laboratory as if they were on-site, while enabling the IT department to achieve seamless virtualization of the IT infrastructure.
“These platforms provide customers with even more flexibility by enabling seamless offsite access to NovoPath,” says Rick Callahan, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for NovoPath. With a diversity of offerings, IT departments can save time and money and select the most appropriate NovoPath offering, given their existing IT infrastructure.”
Callahan notes that these time-tested, reliable, and widely used methodologies could extend the laboratory and its workstations beyond their physical boundaries. “Secure on-demand access to lab data in any setting speeds healthcare delivery, enables physicians to collaborate on difficult cases, and empowers labs to succeed on a business level,” he adds. “Labs have a mandate to compete in a challenging environment where change is a way of life. Every clinical or business edge helps.”
In addition to Citrix and Terminal Services support, NovoPath’s NovoOutreach module provides the referring physician with web-based offsite order entry and results viewing. The system also can communicate results directly to referrers’ electronic medical record (EMR) and practice management systems, as well as a full range of mobile devices including most popular smart phones and tablets.
