XIFIN’s new LIS solution

Aug. 29, 2019

Today, laboratories are under intense pressure to reduce costs and improve operational efficiency, all while enhancing quality and maintaining regulatory compliance. XIFIN, Inc. is helping laboratories meet these challenges with the next evolution of its laboratory information system (LIS), XIFIN LIS 6. The expanded platform features enhancements that support high complexity, high volume labs, as well as new integrated capabilities available through strategic partners, including artificial intelligence (AI)-powered digital pathology workflow and genomic data interpretation, automated prior authorization, and test utilization decision support. The company is also sharing an update on its role in the American Society of Clinical Pathology’s (ASCP) global initiative, “Partners for Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment in Africa.”

The North American LIS market will reach $869 million by 2022, according to Axiom Market Research and Consulting. While on-premise solutions continue to be the most commonly used systems, remotely hosted or Software as a Service (SaaS)-based solutions are beginning to displace them as lab leaders realize the value that the cloud offers. Increasingly, organizations of all types are turning to cloud-based solutions to add flexibility, and to minimize time and money spent on maintenance of complex hardware and software environments. XIFIN LIS is specifically designed to meet the varied operational needs and regulatory requirements for almost every kind of diagnostic laboratory. It also supports precision medicine programs by helping labs more easily integrate, communicate and exchange information with other systems, like electronic health records (EHRs) and revenue cycle management (RCM) solutions, to improve patient outcomes.

With XIFIN LIS 6, XIFIN continues to respond to the needs of diagnostic lab leaders who must quickly adapt to changing test strategies, expanding test menus, and seek better integration with the broader healthcare ecosystem. The platform increases laboratory testing capacity, shortens turnaround time, and creates new revenue stream opportunities. XIFIN LIS 6 builds on the many enhancements and benefits introduced in XIFIN LIS 5, such as multi-specialty workflow support including next generation sequencing (NGS), universal image management, clinical trials, and multidisciplinary care team collaboration. The latest iteration enables labs to review results in batches and sort by various result types including accession/case, specimen, and test, as well as universal plate mapping management—capabilities that are critical for NGS testing.
