Precipio Diagnostics, a New Haven, CT-based hematology-oncology lab, has selected NovoPath anatomic pathology laboratory information system (APLIS) for the management and communication of data to offsite pathologists. Precipio utilizes remote pathologists at academic institutions to provide specialized readings with fast turnaround time.
“We selected NovoPath because its sophisticated technology can handle extremely complex hematology-oncology exams,” says Ilan Danieli, CEO of the cancer diagnostics lab. “Unlike most testing, our specialized exams involve data from a broad range of equipment and must be presented in exactly the appropriate way to both the pathologists interpreting the exams and the referring physicians reading reports. NovoPath meets all of our criteria.”
Danieli notes that Precipio’s business model requires a unique workflow that the LIS must accommodate. Patient samples are sent to Precipio’s lab, which handles the technical component. There, samples are analyzed using all required equipment, and results flow into the NovoPath LIS. The academic pathologists log into the system remotely from their desktops, open a case, review the components, and enter their diagnosis. Actual samples are sent to the pathologists by courier, if needed. Precipio’s lab then outputs the report.
“We are pleased to provide Precipio with the technology it needs to succeed with its unique business model,” comments Rick Callahan, NovoPath’s vice president of sales and marketing. “Precipio’s testing menu requires a range of innovative LIS capabilities to support both complexity and productivity. Its choice of NovoPath testifies to the sophistication and flexibility of our solution.” Learn more about NovoPath’s anatomic pathology software.Read more
