Save time and slash costs, all without sacrificing quality
Accurate molecular pathology lab results in less time

NovoPath’s laboratory information management system automates some of your most time-consuming laboratory processes, increasing efficiency and helping you make better diagnoses at the same time. The NovoPath platform has several features for automating your laboratory workflow, leaving your staff with more time to perform essential tasks.

Batch document scanning

Handling paper takes up time that could be better spent on other activities. Batch document scanning makes it possible to turn stacks of paperwork into digital files, saving time and making it easier to access requisitions, referrals and other documents.

Remote access

With our cloud-based laboratory information management system, you're not limited to working in your office. NovoPath offers remote access, giving you the option of working from home, reviewing reports while you're attending a conference or checking results from a local hospital.

Web reporting capabilities

With NovoPath, there's no need to fax or mail results to clinicians when you can give them instant access to their reports. NovoPath's LIS also gives you the option of allowing patients to download their own documents. The platform complies with all HIPAA requirements, enabling you to better serve patients while also protecting their privacy.

Automatic reflex testing

Our automatic reflex testing eliminates the need to manually add on tests based on your initial diagnosis, reducing the risk of errors.

Make your lab stand out from the crowd
Elegant patient reports in just a few keystrokes

Our molecular pathology software, like all components of our laboratory information system, produces elegant reports with plenty of detail. Distinguish your lab from its competitors by offering custom reports to your clients — simple reports for doctors who prefer something compact and detailed reports for clinicians who expect additional information to guide their clinical judgment. NovoPath’s molecular pathology module makes it easy to add microscopic or gross images, annotated organ maps, histograms, tables or additional reference information.

Features Overview

You are now free to work from anywhere. The Cloud solution lets you “plug and play” without worry. This option has two advantages: no upfront investment in hardware (you may already have all the hardware you need) and no IT-related tasks to contend with. Experience a highly efficient, affordable LIS from anywhere and on any device or platform.

Gives your clinicians instant access to their patient reports with a simple login. Today, many patients expect access to their electronic medical records, as well. With NovoPath™, you can choose to grant patients special access permissions to download or view their own individual reports. As you’d expect, every mouse click is carefully checked for compliance with HIPAA rules and security industry best practices.

Enables your lab to identify specimens locations at any given time. Manage your specimen storage and disposal right from your LIS. Add an additional layer of patient safety through the use of barcode technology when you require two patient identifiers. Finally provide your managers the means to measure benchmarks to identify bottlenecks and address inefficiencies.

Increases consistency, quality, and speed by using standard tumor reporting worksheets to remind you of important details. These worksheets typically follow the College of American Pathologists (CAP) tumor reporting protocols. With NovoPath™ , your lab has the flexibility to modify the CAP protocols to meet your needs. You may choose to adopt tumor reporting protocols in use at other prominent institutions or even make your own.

Captures all pathologists’ and staff schedules in one place, keeps track of desired workload for a given day, and automatically assigns cases to pathologists. Lab staff no longer need to spend hours managing availability, licensure, specialty, and many other conditions when assigning cases to pathologists.

Saves precious time entering case information by intelligently loading the diagnosis codes that are most appropriate to the case at hand. In addition, SDE assigns the correct CPT and ICD9 codes that match your case procedures and diagnoses. SDE helps you reduce billing variations that create unnecessary audit risks and keeps your focus on the situations that truly require your attention.

Enhance your Patient Reports. Clinicians today expect more than just a plain text report. Effortlessly supplement your diagnosis with self-explanatory, automatically annotated organ maps (samples above). You may also include images, graphs, or histograms based on clinical or other findings.

In addition to voice recognition, NovoPath™ empowers physicians and their assistants to dictate and assign their voice recordings automatically to the case at hand. These recordings then show up on transcribers’ pending work lists. With an integrated voice dictation system, users do not have to worry about keeping track of tapes and files or maintaining a separate ictation system resulting in labor, maintenance, and hardware cost savings.

Creates a custom list of reflex tests associated with certain procedures (e.g. HPV testing). Many labs must manually keep track of additional tests that need to be ordered based on the initial diagnosis (e.g. HPV or FISH tests). NovoPath™ eliminates the need for this manual tracking and reduces chances of error.
Empowers your lab to go truly paperless. All you need to do is place the NovoPath™-generated bar coded labels and a supported scanner. In a few moments, these now paperless documents become permanently available to those authorized to access them from within NovoPath™. BDS saves significant administrative time and storage costs while speeding up access to documents.

Ensures accuracy and helps your lab be more efficient. This means optimizing turnaround time of patient results as well as optimizing time-to-bill for rendered services. With this fully integrated module, you can cut out duplicate data handling, dramatically reduce the amount of time bills stay in accounts receivable, and improve both cash flow and the overall financial health of your laboratory.

Lets you track all your discrepancies from within your LIS while working on your cases. Multi-tier warning workflow to control the different discrepancies processes. With live worklist that allows your staff to resolve issue in a timely manner.
