SoftHLA — immunogenetics information management system for the diagnostic genetics laboratory — provides clinical and laboratory information management functionality related to transplantation workups for solid organ and stem cell/bone transplantation, along with transfusion support and other clinical purposes. The system provides a dynamic tool for immunogenetics laboratories by providing strong database support for information analysis and management.

The enhanced functionality of SoftHLA provides users an indispensible information assessment application to track patient groups for workups in transplantation and other immunogenetics studies. As a result, clinicians have come to rely on the broad functionality and in-depth capabilities that are unique to SoftHLA. With its robust and flexible architecture, SoftHLA meets users’ needs in various endeavors, from PCR-based HLA typing methods to solid phase technologies. Furthermore, SoftHLA can be interfaced with virtually any other informatics application, as well as automated and non-automated equipment to support Luminex, flow cytometry, sequencing, and other technologies from third-party vendors, including One Lambda, Abbott, Life Technologies, and others.

Feature: Benefit:

Patient centric profiles with patient and testing histories

Provides a consolidated historical view of the patient for easier
decision making and improved efficiencies.

Consolidated record for viewing crossmatch history

Enables users to track historic crossmatch results against typing and antibody results to assist in donor selection and post transplant immune monitoring.

Every transplant/treatment event electronically linked to a patient through SoftHLA’s TX Event tab

This allows users to maintain a complete history of significant sensitization or treatment events for assessing patient care.

Easily and quickly locate information using standard and customizable reporting features

Provides opportunities for operational and productivity reports to assist with lab management as well as patient or result queries to uncover clinical trends or support publication initiatives.

Quickly access professional policies, algorithms, and external links for guidance

Allows easy access to established decision trees, SOPs stored on internal networks, and pertinent domain Web site; streamlines access to needed reference materials.

Customizable sample processing and test workflows with worksheets and task lists that direct users through the workflow
