Genetics Information Systems Suite modules



The fascinating and exciting field of genetics information management is rapidly unfolding. SoftSystem's comprehensive genetics information management suite of products offers a full range of genetics tools to automate workflow in the genetics laboratory. The suite utilizes the most up-to-date technologies, is Web-accessible, and offers a selection of cytogenetics, molecular, flow cytometry, and immunogenetics systems that are highly configurable and allow for predefined or unique, user-defined protocols.

Instrument integration assists users in attaining efficacy and efficiency by avoiding the risks and time investment inherent in manual data entry and retrieval from laboratory instrumentation.

Reporting capabilities include auto-populated canned messages based on result entry, free-texting edits, spell check, placement of images and graphs into reports, and user-definable reporting templates. The flexibility and enhanced functionality of OUR reporting streamlines the reporting process and significantly reduces errors frequently made with manual reporting workflows while producing professional, easy-to-follow reports.

Rules-based system (RBS) enables users to build rules based on conditions such as test ordered, sample type, patient age, client, indication, etc. in order to provide alerts or notifications or to set an action regarding processing or reporting. This provides user-defined automation to guide users in given circumstances as well as support client standing orders.

Reagent inventory functionality resides within each application enabling users to track reagent usage, provide prompts of approaching par levels to support just-in-time ordering, and document quality control status and expiration dates with user alerts to avoid unsuitable reagent usage. Bar code label generation for reagent scanning provides auto-documentation of reagent use per sample and auto-calculated reagent depletion.

Management reporting is also available with either defined or ad hoc reports. This management reporting functionality aids the laboratory not only with productivity management, but also with quality assurance efforts and trending, and with producing patient data queries for publications or presentations.

Defined reports can be generated on demand or performed on a scheduler with auto-delivery to laboratory management.

Ad hoc reports can be user-defined based on system fields.

Frequently-requested novel reports can be built and saved in a reporting library for repeated use.
