Siemens Healthineers, Tarrytown, NY, has launched the Atellica PM 1.0 software, a customizable process management system that enables laboratories to oversee process data for their automation system, information technology, and connected instruments.

Simplifying management of day-to-day laboratory tasks, the software enables labs to develop a central 3-D control panel for laboratory personnel to monitor and navigate all connected systems without physically walking from system to system. To further streamline lab operations, the software tracks levels of onboard reagents and consumables, alerting operators of low-consumable levels in real-time.

“Atellica PM 1.0 software simplifies laboratory operations, enabling laboratory technicians to spend less time on process-related tasks and more time on what matters most—patient results,” says Franz Walt, president of laboratory diagnostics at Siemens Healthineers. “This innovative software centralizes all instrument data onto one screen, thus enabling our customers to keep their laboratories up and running, without actually running around.”

Using the software, designated operators can customize alerts, dashboards, and priority sample rules, as well as manage sample and workflow exceptions. The software can be configured so that operators can access the software simultaneously with customized settings based on their specific responsibilities. They can also view different laboratories, locations, or sites. When connected to Aptio Automation, the software has the flexibility to connect to both Siemens and third-party systems.

Further, the software’s reporting features enable real-time assessment of key metrics such as turnaround times, testing volumes, or more specific management goals—eliminating the need to export data to another platform.
