ALLENTOWN, Pa., Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Altosoft, an innovator in the field of healthcare informatics and business intelligence, today announced that Health Network Laboratories (HNL), has chosen to implement Altosoft's Insight((TM) )system at its anatomic and clinical pathology labs in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. With 46 locations throughout the two states, HNL, an affiliate of the Lehigh Valley Health Network, processes nearly five and a half million clinical and anatomic pathology tests each year.
"Our IT environment includes laboratory information management systems from Sunquest for both anatomic and clinical pathology, as well as the Sunquest billing system and various SQL database-based applications," said Jane Erdman, HNL's Chief Information Officer. "To achieve our operational goals we needed to seamlessly automate and integrate the data across those systems to provide a unified view of our business. We looked at a number of alternatives and found that Insight provides a single solution making the delivery of dashboards and reports faster and easier, instead of having to manually manipulate the data from multiple systems."
After a thorough evaluation of products from several vendors, Erdman and HNL chose Altosoft's Insight for Pathology solution. Insight is an intuitive, graphical, point-and-click approach, empowering clinical staff and administrative personnel to take control of their data through the use of intuitive BI dashboards and reports. Insight for Pathology provides the benefits of a rich library of pre-built analysis and reports while allowing for easy extension and customization to fit the unique challenges of their lab environment in a fraction of the time, cost and effort required by other companies' solutions. Insight has been successfully implemented at nationally recognized leaders in healthcare like Yale, Memorial Sloan-Kettering and more.
"Healthcare organizations of all sizes know the old, convoluted way of bringing data together has turned into a liability," said Scott Opitz, Altosoft's president and chief executive officer. "The ability to efficiently process information across all systems to deliver a single, unified operational view is fundamental to meeting the challenges of the next decade. All members of provider organizations must be given the tools to make better decisions based on timely information and more optimally allocate their assets," Opitz said.
Erdman echoed Opitz's thoughts, saying Insight will help HNL save both time and money. "As we move toward a full implementation, we expect that Insight will help us save time and money, which will allow us to ensure the delivery of accurate results to our clients in rapid fashion. That's especially important with healthcare organizations increasingly relying on outcomes-based medicine."
Altosoft's Insight platform is designed to exceed performance and scalability requirements for even the largest enterprises, but its rapid implementation, cost effectiveness, low maintenance, and ease-of-use also make it ideal for departmental solutions, mid-sized businesses, and embedded/OEM applications. Insight can be installed on a single server or distributed across multiple computers for shared access and optimal performance.

What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
