|Continuum Clinical Laboratories|
Continuum Clinical Laboratories provides integrated laboratory services across the continuum of care. The result is improved patient care, increased efficiency and reduced costs.
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.
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.
