Achieving 95% Autoverification Levels in Hematology

Vancouver General Hospital, an 800 bed academic health science center, has several programs and specialities. They were under pressure with labor shortages, shrinking budgets and growing volumes which is why they decided to pursue autoverification in hematology. Data Innovations offered an autoverification solution through Instrument ManagerTM which allowed them to:

  • Reduce reporting errors
  • Minimize misinterpretation of results handling
  • Significantly reduce turn-around time
  • Achieve a paperless Hematology workspace
