Orchard® Pathology can be utilized as a standalone AP system or a single system that includes clinical and molecular. A shared database used by various diagnostic disciplines provides access to the patient’s entire history and enables the consolidation of clinical, cytology, and pathology results on reports. Image management tools make it easy to link digital images, annotated diagrams, and scanned documents to case worksheets and incorporate them onto patient reports. Data is stored in discrete fields to enhance EHR integration and simplify synoptic reporting, data mining, and analytics. Users are able to eliminate the manual system of audit trails and paper files, thereby improving efficiency and enabling pathology laboratories to more easily meet quality metrics and patient safety goals.

Part 2 | Healthcare Consolidation: Understand your lab’s value proposition
Part 3 | Is the lab a crucial ancillary service or a pure commodity?
Part 4 | The lab’s role in population, health, preventive care and evidence
Part 5 | Clinical Consultations: Expect sea change as labs evolve in the care continuum
Part 6 | Point of care vs. point-of-care-testing (POCT): How POCT supports value metrics and closes care gaps

Analyze This: Data Shines Within and Without
Laboratories are using the power of data analytics for both internal advancements, and to achieve external organization-wide improvements. Innovative labs are responding to healthcare’s shift to a value-based focus by using and combining their data to improve patient care and reduce inappropriate spending. Pathologist, Dr. Brimhall, Orchard’s Director of Medical Analytics, shares some of his analytics projects with CAP Today.
