Beckman Coulter Diagnostics, Brea, Calif, has introduced DxOne information management solutions, an integrated system of technologies and capabilities designed to facilitate laboratory data access and usability. DxOne is designed in response to the increasing challenges faced by laboratory technicians to expedite result times, reduce costs, maneuver around personnel shortages, and navigate network consolidations.
The suite of next-generation technologies applies Cloud computing capabilities to provide remote access functionality for an ‘answers anywhere, anytime’ approach to care and laboratory activities. The strategic combination of tools is expected to help laboratories achieve greater operational excellence and efficiency, and empower more confident decisionmaking.
“We designed this system of products in direct response to the daily concerns faced by our customers,” says Christoph Moellers, vice president and general manager of Beckman Coulter’s workflow and information technology solutions business unit. “Not only are laboratory professionals today tasked with ensuring timely, reliable results to support patient care, but also they must manage the day-to-day operations in the laboratory. We saw that by giving them the right kind of information at the right time, we could greatly alleviate some of the pressures they face.”
The DxOne suite of information management solutions forms a cohesive system of products designed to improve efficiency, give insight into operations throughout an entire network, and create a more comprehensive understanding of laboratory performance.
The suite includes DxOne Inventory Manager, which eases inventory control functions to help laboratories minimize costs, ensure tight turnaround times, track trends, and reduce administrative duties through automation and electronic capabilities; DxOne Command Central, which gives personnel the ability to monitor multiple instruments in real time from a single workstation; and DxOne Insights, which streamlines workflow and efficiency by connecting instruments throughout a laboratory network.
“Technology has given us the ability to gather vast amounts of data,” says Moellers. “The challenge has been in taking all the data that is being collected and presenting it in a way that gives the laboratory the greatest benefit. We believe this unique combination of solutions does that, empowering laboratory personnel to achieve their operational and care goals.”
