  • Accurate and reliable
  • Rapid test results
  • Courteous service
  • Easy to use


We Have the Latest Technology

Beth Israel has made major investments in laboratory automation. Our robotic Total Laboratory Automation (TLA) system was the first system in a United States hospital to completely automate processing, testing, re-testing, and storage of laboratory specimens. This technology allows us to perform high throughput random access testing at a very competitive cost.

In surgical pathology we use an automated speech recognition system based on Kurzweil artificial intelligence for the direct dictation of routine diagnostic pathology consultations. This innovative approach to surgical pathology has been recognized by the Smithsonian Institute for its technological achievement. The use of this system results in extraordinary efficiency, increased productivity, reduced turnaround time and better responsiveness to our clinicians and their patients.

Benefits: Internet Connection

The Internet has forever changed health care and communications between physicians, their colleagues and their patients. To complete successfully, physician practices require effective information technology solutions. To provide your practice with a competitive edge, we offer technology for extended access to laboratory data throughout our health care system. Our Internet consecutively solution permits direct access from your office, clinic, or home to our laboratory Information System. Laboratory tests can be ordered, specimen labels can be printed and patient results can be reviewed. This expanded access to clinical laboratory data can improve the quality of patient care.

Web technology, using standard desktop browsers over public or private networks, offers numerous advantages in installation, training and maintenance. Since the browsers use a familiar set of conventions for sign-on and interaction, they are easily adopted by professional staff.

Using our Internet Connection, your practice has immediate access to the following:

  • Notification of specimen status
  • Rapid specimen accessioning and ordering of laboratory tests
  • Patient and payer demographics can be downloaded directly from your practice software to our laboratory information system, eliminating errors in patient and payer identification
  • Automatic printing of Advance Beneficiary Notices, when appropriate or when required, assures compliance with HCFA requirements
  • Patient reports can be printed in your office automatically as scheduled or on demand
  • Review of current or cumulative patient lab results
  • Access to inpatient and outpatient lab data
