Trellis™, Orchard Software’s Industry-leading POCT Management Software, Recognized for Best Practices Award
At Orchard, we are proud of the fact that we continually strive to align our offerings with changes in the healthcare industry, and we listen to our client base to constantly improve our products. Knowing that point-of-care testing (POCT) is growing and that it offers serious challenges in oversight and connectivity, we developed Trellis to support POCT. It is another example of Orchard providing exciting new products built on the most up-to-date technologies.
New Opportunities for POCT, Same Challenges
Healthcare’s shift to value-based care creates a new perspective for POCT. The nature of this shift—a focus on preventive care and monitoring chronic disease—has led to growth in POCT, but not without its challenges. Near-patient testing’s decentralized nature makes oversight difficult to manage. Those tasked with managing POCT struggle with inconsistent data quality and accurate competency assessment records for testing personnel. Limited EHR connectivity leads to poorly organized, manual processes—increasing error rates and a substantial loss of POCT revenue.
“Rapid, worldwide POCT adoption necessitates robust connectivity and management solutions. Orchard Software’s quality-driven company culture and platform maturity are critical points of differentiation, allowing for the development of the advanced Trellis POCT management software. Leveraging over 25 years of laboratory expertise, Orchard Software developed Trellis, which provides comprehensive data management and integration capabilities, irrespective of device type, or POCT site location.”
