Health IT like SoftID, SCC’s electronic positive patient and specimen identification solution, helps eliminate identification errors, enhance patient safety, reduce bottlenecks, and improve turnaround time. This allows phlebotomists to feel more confident knowing that they’re collecting specimens for the correct test and the correct patient, and patients feel safer with the assurance that their specimens will be handled properly. SoftID enables users to obtain real-time patient orders and avoid unnecessary specimen collection – resulting in fewer needle sticks for patients.
SCC’s healthcare information management system solutions can improve all areas of the laboratory with a full range of product suites for laboratory (SoftLab, SoftMic, SoftPath), blood services (SoftBank, SoftDonor), outreach (SoftWebplus, SoftA/R, SoftCompliance, SoftExpressplus), and genetics (SoftCytogenetics, SoftMolecular, SoftFlowCytometry, SoftHLA, SoftBiochemistry, SoftPathDx).
