Visiun, Ann Arbor, Mich, has released a report template conforming to the newly mandated form for federal reporting of covid-19 testing, which labs must submit on a daily basis to the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

On March 29, Vice President Mike Pence announced that all hospitals are required to report data about covid-19 testing performed by ‘in-house’ laboratories daily using a specific template. Performance Insight, Visiun’s laboratory analytics tool, now has the ability to populate all the required covid-19 testing data directly into the assigned template and automatically e-mail it to HHS and FEMA.

In addition to the newly released report template, Visiun has also developed additional analytics for laboratories to use in responding to covid-19. The analytical capabilities enable laboratories to monitor volumes of positive and negative test results by laboratory location, identify new positive cases from repeat positive results, and distinguish high-volume areas based on zip codes.
