CrelioHealth For Diagnostics

New Product Releases In The First Quarter Of 2023

The first quarter of 2023 has led us to take significant steps to enhance lab management and unlock a better future of patient care. In the previous quarter, CrelioHealth introduced new features and boosted a few modules to simplify and improvize your daily workflow.

Let’s look at the new product launches and enhancements made for the First Quarter of 2023.

Product Releases & Upgrades That Simplify Lab Sample Management

Track Each Sample With Audit Trails

Audit trails enhance the sample process auditing enabling better traceability. The feature allows you to track every workflow step from patient info to bill info, sample info, and reports. It also shows details of the user that acted upon each step. 

Benefits for lab users

  • Lab technicians, doctors, and administrators can view and edit history, and compare values.
  • Administrators and staff can see changes affecting bills, reports, and sample criteria.
  • Doctors can make better decisions in report validation and approval.

From the last known location of the sample to the user who last handled the sample, you can trace everything with sample audit trails in your lab workflow.

Benefits For high-volume testing labs

The feature is an excellent medium for troubleshooting and fixations. The feature gives more clarity of every stage of sample testing and helps determine the quality of work & the productivity of your staff. It assists lab users in managing patient data appropriately. It is designed to account for every step of operation in order to provide a streamlined approach toward lab management.

Scan Mode To Create Sample Batches

Introducing a new feature under sample batching where samples can be added to a batch through barcode scanning. This feature can smoothly integrate with the current workflow without affecting the search functionality.

Operational benefits for labs

  • Allows directly adding samples to the batch when searched in scan mode.
  • Eliminates the need to select samples for the batch manually.
  • Streamlines the batch creation experience for technicians.

Smooth Sample Flow With Pending Collection Tab

Now it is super easy to locate all pending sample collections in a single place. This feature facilitates the collection team to mark the sample collected, which can be later received in the lab from the ‘pending accession’ tab. This tab can be found in the accession section. Filter for a date can be applied to see pending samples for a specific day. Any pending sample list can also be exported in Excel format for the next steps.

Benefits For Labs

  • Ensures smooth sample workflows.
  • Makes sample collection & sample acknowledgment by different teams seamless.
  • Makes easier for technicians to manage independent workflows for different tasks.
  • Sets an efficient way to report samples to the same lab by different collection teams.

Streamline Sample Management With Department-Wise Accession

We have further simplified the accession module with department-wise accession settings. In this setting, lab users can only view the departments assigned to them.

Labs can enable this setting in the accession module, where a user can have access to view, collect and receive samples. Any user can only manage samples from the department assigned to him.

Benefits for labs

  • Lab managers can control user access to their respective departments.
  • Staff can only access the data limited to their departments unless they have access from the admin.
  • Super helpful for labs with different accession areas, helping them segregate samples as per departments.

Benefits for laboratory staff

Users can easily access the samples which are assigned to them. This will help them to get their work done quickly without delaying further work where the same sample is to be shared but from a different area. The feature saves effort in managing their daily workload as per assigned responsibilities.

Simplify Antibiotics Sensitivity Analysis

We have introduced this feature for labs to simplify microbiology and molecular testing workflow management. This revolutionizes the approach to analyzing sensitivity patterns (for microorganisms & antibiotics). Pre-configured antibiotics and preset panels with RIS ranges save time for lab technicians & enable them to focus on other critical tasks.

The comprehensive library of antibiotics & drug resistance pattern analysis can be configured as per the unique requirements of the lab, offering more flexibility and great convenience.

The robust reporting system that we introduced for these departments auto-analyzes sensitivity patterns. It also assists in the identification of the most effective course of action & treatment for patients, improving the end outcome.

Report customization eases users to generate & share reports amongst clinicians in real time. So doctors and other healthcare practitioners are assured of delay-free and accurate patient care.

Benefits for labs

  • Add multiple microorganisms at runtime.
  • Simplified microbiology and molecular test reporting process.
  • Easily customizable, flexible yet accurate reporting and analysis.
