LIMS + Interpretive Reporting for Personalized Medicine Labs

  The Challenge

When a new laboratory starts the process of bringing Pharmacogenetic (PGx), Infectious Disease (IFD), Toxicology or another highly specific Molecular Diagnostic (MDx) test to market, it is faced with the challenge of finding a lab system that can a) support the particular type(s) of testing they are going to offer on day 1, b) provide physician/patient friendly reporting, c) help manage/automate their specific workflow and d) adapt to the science/technology changes of the future. Furthermore, many times these organizations have not established large internal IT bandwidth to manage big software system environments.

Pathagility has proven to be a great fit by supporting all of these needs in one Software-as-a-Service product while also providing the flexibility to plug into an existing system environment.

  The Process

Pathagility works closely with the lab to determine the type of tests and reports they need including deploying PhD level support as needed. Next, Pathagility spins up a no-footprint, web environment based on the lab’s specific needs allowing them to focus on their core business. The modular functionality of Pathagility’s WorkPath LIMS allows for an efficient online requisition and accessioning process utilizing bar coding. Pathagility then uses its inherent ability to exchange data in a multitude of ways with the lab’s instrument(s) and fully integrate the lab’s proprietary results formula within the WorkPath system. Given a series of genetic markers, the custom algorithm generates a series of alleles. It uses these alleles with other environmental data points to accurately construct a result panel for each case. With this in place, a dynamic, custom report can be generated that is physician/patient friendly.  Finally, Pathagility will fully integrate with billing, CRM, and EMR systems.

  The Result

The lab is running an efficient, low-touch laboratory process. The staff does not have to spend valuable time managing a complicated system environment. Pathagility’s portability allows the lab to utilize multiple accessioning and client servicing teams in different areas of the country to manage large workloads. When workflow changes are necessary, the Pathagility system can quickly adjust to continue the production of dynamic reports. Through integration with billing, CRM and other existing systems, data stays current across the enterprise. Finally, the lab provides its referring physicians and patients a variety of report distribution and collaboration options.

“The ongoing servicer beyond our initial implementation sets Pathagility apart from other LIMS vendors we've worked with.  They are a true partner who understands our workflow and continues to help us grow and use what feels like a custom solution for our lab.”
