Orchard® Pathology can be utilized as a stand-alone AP system or a single system that includes clinical and molecular. The comprehensive pathology information system is designed to meet the current and future trends in pathology and handle the complexities of clinical, molecular, and pathology testing and reporting. A shared database used by various diagnostic disciplines provides access to the patient’s entire history and enables the consolidation of clinical results to the cytology or pathology report. Image management tools make it easy to link digital images, annotated diagrams, and scanned documents to case worksheets and incorporate them onto patient reports. Information on each report is stored in discrete data fields that enhance EHR integration and simplify the process to mine data for evaluations, correlation studies, quality assurance, regulatory, statistical, and many other management reports.
