Currently my lab is using Cerner Millennium. We are being asked to look at new Blood Bank LIS systems because the rest of the lab is going to Epic Beaker. I have seen demos of Haemonetics SafeTrace and Mediware HCLL. I am also trying to get one with Soft scheduled. I am seeking advice from current users of` these systems. Are you happy with your BB LIS? If given the chance to change to another would you? Any additional advice is appreciated.
Hello, My hospital just expanded and opened another hospital. The laboratories are separate, however we are all in the same lab system. The system recognizes the 2 different sites, but everyone has access to both sites results. My question is, does anyone else have this? I feel like there is a HIPAA issue here. I have worked at two other organizations that had multiple entities and I have never had access to the other labs' results, unless I had access to an EMR and then I could see the results there, but never in my lab system. I can only enter things into the other sites if I move the specimen and receive it into the other site, but just having access when many of us don'r work over there seems like a problem to me. Also, because we are linked, the system doesn't recognize that a type and screen done at the other site doesn't apply to my site. Thoughts? Experiences? Thanks!
Can someone who uses softbank tell me how they control patients arm bands? Who cuts them off and and how do they know when to cut them off? Currently we have a sql report that goes out to nursing units and it displays patients that expire that day (however the time is not specific). Therefore, I have nurses cutting off bands before they are really past the 72 hour window which runs us into problems. Anyone have a good system that works for them??? Thanks!
Would anyone care to weigh in on the pros and cons of softbank? We currently use a different bloodbank system for Tranfusion and our donor services and product manufacturing. Does anyone have experience with the Soft System vein to vein on a large scale, including mobiles? I would take any comments. Message me privately if you don't care to share publicly. Thanks!
