Automate Your PT Workflow

In the fast-paced realm of laboratory testing, efficiency and accuracy are paramount. Yet, amidst the daily whirlwind of processing patient samples, managing data, and ensuring quality assurance, there’s often a persistent bottleneck: managing proficiency testing (PT) workflows.

Why automate PT workflows, you might ask? The answer lies in the seamless integration of PT processes with existing LIS platforms. By eliminating the need for manual data entry, laboratories can ensure that PT results mirror the patient test order and result workflow, thus reflecting real-world scenarios accurately.

Do you or your laboratory staff type out your PT results? You may want to join us for our joint live webinar all about automating your PT workflow into your existing Laboratory Information System (LIS). Scheduled for May 13th, 2024, at 11:00 AM (CDT), this free, 30-minute webinar will provide insights into the streamlining process, and will provide a moderated Q&A session for registered participants.

Hosted by WSLH Proficiency Testing and Labgnostic PT, our guest speaker Steve Box, the Global Business Development Director at X-Lab, will invite laboratory professionals to discover how embracing automation can not only save valuable time but also mitigate risks associated with manual data entry. X-Lab’s vision is to be the leader in connecting the world’s diagnostic systems to improve healthcare for all. Their products, Labgnostic and LabReach, solve the challenges of referring and reporting diagnostic tests in and out of labs and other care organizations across Europe, the US, and Australia.

In this 30-minute webinar, you will learn about how automating your process can also remove the monotony and risk of error that comes from keying in results. Beyond the benefit of convenience, automating PT workflows enhances efficiency, reduces errors, and enhances overall laboratory quality. Moreover, it frees up valuable resources that can be redirected toward other critical tasks, ultimately improving patient care.

The launch of our joint live webinar with Labgnostic PT serves also as the start of our new partnership with Labnogistic PT, a global project of UK-based X-Lab. This new partnership between WSLH Proficiency Testing and Labgnostic PT marks a significant milestone in the advancement of streamlined laboratory operations.

“We envision a future where laboratories operate seamlessly, powered by digital healthcare solutions and connectivity,” says Steve Box. “By empowering laboratories to automate PT data submission into their existing LIS, our partnership aims to revolutionize PT workflows nationwide.”

In conclusion, the convergence of automation and collaboration promises to redefine laboratory workflows for many clinical laboratories across the United States. From simplifying PT processes to fostering partnerships that drive innovation, the future of laboratory medicine is brighter than ever. As we bid farewell to manual data entry, we welcome a new era of efficiency, accuracy, and excellence in patient care. WSLH Proficiency Testing hopes you will join us for the live webinar launch on May 13.
