Modern medical laboratories need flexible and adaptable laboratory information systems (LIS systems; also known as pathology lab software) that can evolve with their businesses. 

Traditional on-premise medical LIS solutions often come up short, leading lab directors and managers to seek comprehensive, cloud-based LIS software alternatives like LigoLab's LIS & RCM Laboratory Informatics Platform that support all laboratory report templates (including templates for anatomic pathology, clinical laboratory, molecular diagnostics, and specialty).

Join us as we delve into LigoLab’s pathology lab software and lab report customization capabilities. We’ll also highlight the platform’s adaptability to client preferences, and how it distinguishes itself in the market from other LIS system software by addressing the unique needs of customers and patients.

Flexible LIS System Reporting: Driving Efficiency, Compliance, & Client Satisfaction

Flexible and efficient laboratory information system (LIS pathology) reporting tools are crucial in upholding operational and regulatory standards and exceeding client expectations.

Over time, pathology software reporting technology has undergone considerable advancements. These improvements empower lab directors and managers to independently create and manage lab reports within the department, eliminating the need for external assistance from laboratory information system vendors and the associated costs.

The most advanced LIS systems facilitate the seamless distribution of reports to clients through diverse delivery channels. This streamlined communication fosters customer satisfaction and loyalty. 

By adopting modern and flexible pathology reporting software solutions, labs can enhance their laboratory workflow management, ensure regulatory compliance, and forge stronger relationships with their clientele, a key contributing factor to the lab's overall success.

2. Flexible Lab Report Customization

LigoLab's innovative report-building template engine empowers lab directors and managers to generate and manage fully customizable lab reports tailored to meet the unique requirements of their clients and patients. 

“At LigoLab, we have prioritized lab reports from day one. We’ve equipped our informatics platform with a super powerful report-building template engine that gives our customers fully customizable lab reports that they can build and manage themselves.”  

- Suren Avunjian, LigoLab CEO

This flexible LIS system customization offers several advantages that significantly enhance the value of lab reports:

  • Consistent presentation & rule-based formatting: Users benefit from uniform report presentation, ensuring a professional and polished appearance. Rule-based formatting streamlines the report creation process, allowing lab managers to focus on delivering accurate results rather than grappling with complex formatting issues.
  • High-quality report design: The LIS system’s template engine supports pixel-level accuracy, full color, and rich text, all crucial for visually appealing and easy-to-read reports. This attention to detail enhances the user experience and helps convey vital information to clients and patients.
  • Multimedia support: The pathology lab software platform allows lab managers to incorporate images, diagrams, annotations, and macros directly into their reports, providing a comprehensive and informative overview of lab findings. This multimedia support enables clients and patients to understand the test results, leading to better-informed decision-making.
  • Voice dictation (speech-to-text) integration: LigoLab's template engine includes voice dictation (speech-to-text) capabilities, enabling lab managers to quickly and efficiently dictate their observations and findings directly into the report. This feature saves time and mouse clicks while reducing the risk of transcription errors.
  • Conditional rules for client preferences: The LIS system platform supports the creation of conditional rules that accommodate specific client preferences. This flexibility allows labs to cater to the unique needs of their clients, enhancing client satisfaction and fostering long-term relationships.

“We very rarely find ourselves having to make enhancements to the report-building engine to accommodate the needs of a laboratory. With this engine, the lab can customize how reports look, flow, and are formatted. They can choose the types of attachments or embedded information used, and how the reports are presented to the client.”

- Tony Oganesian, LigoLab’s Chief Technology Officer

3. Enhanced Client Preferences with Dual Reporting Engines

LigoLab's pathology lab reporting software features dual reporting engines that offer lab managers unparalleled customization and flexibility to meet their client's diverse needs. This advanced approach to LIS system software provides an enhanced experience for lab clients while streamlining lab operations. 

Key benefits of LigoLab's pathology lab reporting software include:

  • Distinct focus on report elements: The first engine is dedicated to managing the outer layer of the lab report, including crucial components such as headers, footers, pagination, and company logos. This focus ensures a professional appearance and consistent branding across all lab reports.
  • Tailored content presentation: The second engine is responsible for result templates, which determine the content and presentation of the lab findings within the report. This engine allows lab managers to convey crucial information that aligns with each client's preferences, ultimately enhancing client satisfaction.
  • Customizable reporting experience: By combining report and result templates, labs can create a fully tailored reporting experience for each client. This level of customization enables labs to stand out from competitors, delivering a personalized experience that goes above and beyond industry standards.
  • Efficient management of client preferences: LigoLab's dual reporting engines easily accommodate and manage unique client preferences. Whether clients require specific layouts, co-branding opportunities, or preferred report delivery methods, LigoLab's LIS system software automates these preferences.
  • Adaptability for changing client needs: As client's needs evolve, LigoLab's dual reporting engines provide the flexibility to make changes quickly and efficiently. This adaptability ensures that labs can consistently meet the needs of their clients and maintain strong, long-lasting relationships.

4. Integration with the College of American Pathologists (CAP)

LigoLab’s pathology lab software enhances reporting capabilities by integrating with the College of American Pathologists (CAP) to support synoptic reporting. This powerful feature offers numerous benefits to lab managers and pathologists, ensuring a more efficient and accurate reporting process:

  • Access to CAP's Cancer Reporting Templates: LigoLab LIS software users can utilize CAP's Cancer Reporting Templates, designed to standardize and streamline the reporting process for cancer cases. These templates are regularly updated to reflect the latest industry standards and guidelines.
  • Guided standardization: Pathologists are prompted to answer required or optional questions using the CAP templates. This guided approach ensures all necessary elements are included in the report, ultimately improving the accuracy and completeness of the information provided to patients and healthcare providers.
  • Time & effort savings: The integration with CAP's Cancer Reporting Templates eliminates the need for pathologists to manually type or dictate raw text, saving time and effort in the reporting process. This increased efficiency allows pathologists to focus on other critical aspects of their work.
  • Enhanced reporting consistency: By leveraging CAP's Cancer Reporting Templates, labs can ensure a consistent and standardized approach to reporting.
