Siemens Healthineers to showcase the power of data in the lab

Aug. 6, 2019

At the 71st AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo, Siemens Healthineers will feature in Booth #1039 its IT solutions to combat the laboratory’s staffing challenges, limited budgets, and the increasing complexity in sample management and testing.

The Siemens Healthineers Atellica Diagnostics IT portfolio enables laboratories to unlock their full potential by leveraging data to optimize workflows. With easy-to-navigate user interfaces and centralized management of operations, the robust software solution enhances visibility into valuable business analytics that unify sample, process, result, and inventory data. These features have enabled laboratories to achieve outcomes that matter, such as a 93 percent reduction in testing errors, an 85 percent increase in patient and staff satisfaction, and an 88 percent achievement rate for 30-minute STAT turnaround.

 The Atellica portfolio pipeline includes the Atellica Asa Application3, a tablet-based virtual assistant designed to simplify and organize operator interactions with the instruments. The goal of the Atellica Asa Application is to draw staff attention to a single interface with only the most common, yet critical, procedures needed to complete daily system operations. The tile-based software is designed to organize operator tasks by workflow and to reduce the number of screens used to complete a single task.

 In addition to demonstrations of the Atellica Asa virtual assistant, attendees can learn more about LifeNet, an online program that helps labs increase system utilization by providing a centralized platform to schedule system maintenance and view service history of connected Siemens Healthineers systems.

 Attendees also can explore the artificial intelligence-driven Guardian Program, which can help to predict certain system failures up to 21 days before they happen. By monitoring more than 80 critical components in real time, the Guardian Program can continuously detect potential issues and schedule repairs at a time that will not affect turnaround time, maintaining workflow during peak hours.

 Visitors to the Siemens Healthineers booth also can experience their own virtual reality journey through a simulated hospital environment to visualize in vitro testing and workflow possibilities based upon tailored needs.
