SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the North American market for anatomic pathology laboratory information systems (AP LIS), Frost & Sullivan recognizes NovoPath, Inc. with the 2018 North American Enabling Technology Leadership Award. Over the last two decades, NovoPath's LIS software for AP, simply called NovoPath™, has consistently garnered high ratings from clients for its continual improvement and functional expansion, as well as its ease of use. NovoPath™ offers an array of modules inspired by client needs and a strong understanding of technology and market trends. These modules increase productivity and efficiency by streamlining workflow, promoting superior diagnostic outcomes, and providing lab managers a real-time view into their operations.
NovoPath™ clients benefit from several value-enhancing modules and features, including the following:
- Lean Process Improvement module tracks specimens from entry to storage, as well as day-to-day activities, and highlights potential areas of improvement in patient safety, staff productivity, quality control, and overall lab efficiency using powerful data analytics.
- Digital Pathology Readiness ensures that lab managers and pathologists have a seamless and elegant way to view and capture relevant information from digitized slides, improving turnaround time in the lab and allowing for remote diagnosis.
- Auto Case Distribution and Staff Scheduler dynamically distributes caseloads amongst pathologists during the workday while keeping track of workload, availability, and other variables. Staff Scheduler saves significant time for labs that manually assign caseload.
- NovoNotifier™ is a patient report delivery system that delivers patient reports to mobile devices and downloads and prints reports at a client's site automatically upon release. This eliminates human intervention and delivers fast and reliable patient results.
These modules and features integrate fully as part of a powerful LIS that includes functionalities expected in more expensive systems, such as personalized results for clients, electronic sign off and data exchange, a wide range of interfaces to other systems and instruments, voice dictation and recognition, and several methods of reporting results.
"NovoPath™ is used to diagnose over 4 million new specimens each year and has a customer base of more than 309 sites. This software platform has experienced consistent growth due to its usefulness, broad functionality, and customizable features," said Supratik Paul, senior industry analyst. "Besides, it is cost effective, offers outstanding process optimization due to on-time delivery, and is simpler to use than competing solutions."
NovoPath™ has found eager acceptance in customer segments ranging from specialized reference laboratories to large general hospitals. The company enjoys a huge competitive advantage in a market where clients desire customized LIS owing to constantly changing regulations and payment cap revisions. In addition to NovoPath's success in the United States, the company has experienced growth in international markets as well.
NovoPath™ has leveraged its brand to sign several strategic partnerships with leading healthcare and IT solutions providers, as well as software developers. For example, its partnership with Allscripts (formerly McKesson), a leading healthcare services and IT provider, has allowed Allscripts to present an integrated LIS solution to its customer base. Similarly, NovoPath worked with Philips IntelliSite Pathology Solution to develop an integrated digital imaging platform for viewing pathology slides, improving turn-around-time for labs, and offering actionable information.
"Overall, Frost & Sullivan believes that NovoPath's strategic partnerships with top healthcare service providers, modern technology, and solid brand equity in the AP ecosystem have positioned it as the AP LIS vendor of choice in the North American market," noted Supratik Paul.
