INTRODUCING LABNEXUS™ CLOUD-BASED LAB CONNECTIVITY

BOSTON, Mass., February 15, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) - CompuGroup Medical US, developer of the market-leading LabDAQ® Laboratory Information System (LIS), is proud to announce the release of LabNexus™, a new software solution to assist hospital and reference labs with their outreach programs. LabNexus allows laboratories to send orders and review results, all within a completely cloud-based system.

Every year, approximately seven billion samples are tested in US laboratories alone. This is a critical part of the diagnostic process, contributing to 70 percent of all medical decisions-making easy access to real-time data, from any location, of paramount importance. The LabNexus Laboratory Outreach Solution is easy to navigate, secure, and accessible, allowing clinicians to provide premium healthcare to their patients from anywhere they have an internet connection.

This web-based solution for hospital and reference labs provides faster turnaround by automating the way orders are received and results are disseminated to clients, thereby allowing their outreach programs to expand. The system works independently from the LabDAQ family of products, using the latest internet-based technologies to provide safe and reliable access to laboratory data in virtually any LIS.

LabNexus can easily connect to your current Laboratory Information System (clinical pathology) or Anatomic Pathology System. We provide a secure hosting environment so the implementation does not require hardware or an IT staff to deploy.

The LabNexus portal increases provider efficiency and productivity in the lab environment with:

Accessibility around the clock

Order entry to multiple lab facilities

Preliminary and final Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act (CLIA) compliant reports

Management reports and label printing

Lab ordering and results with an inbox

Batch printing

Customizable lab branding within the portal

The LabNexus system allows for integration of lab data directly to Electronic Health Records (EHRs) such as:

Orders, demographics and lab results from EHRs or Hospital Information Systems (HIS)

Real time demographics communication from a practice management system, EHR or HIS

Patient demographic laboratory data from health information networks
