LabMate™ - Pathology Labs, X-ray, Ultrasound and Diagnostic Management Software
The LabMate software is for pathology labs, X-ray, Ultrasound and medical
diagnostic centers management. The pathology labs, X-ray, ultrasound and medical
diagnostic centers are the most important part
health care industry. These centers process large number of
lab specimen samples, x-rays, ultrasounds, CT scans, MR investigations
for the patients sent by several independent physicians, hospitals and
referring laboratories. The centers have to perform the investigations
and give the reports to the patients and other physicians in time. The
record of patients and their investigation reports also have to be
kept in proper fashion for MIS reports, future reference and billing.
critical issue faced by these centers is to seek a cutting edge solution
to automate its result reporting system along with management of patient
records and billing of various related parties. In the current competitive
marketplace nicely presented reports along with zero errors would
provide competitive advantage to the lab or diagnostic center. Assessment
quality control of the results is another area of importance.
Diagnostic centers use different type of reagents and other chemicals
tests during various time periods. The chemical quality
and expiry along with the human errors can cause havoc with the results.
Labmate software helps in solving these problems. Labmate program
helps in performing several diagnostic center management functions. Some
of the functions, which can be done by this program, are:
-- A centralized patient booking and issuing of a booking slip
-- Issuing of Receipt, Bill to the patient
-- Recording of lab results
-- Printing of patient reports
-- Maintenance of daily collection, balances
-- Other management reports such as doctor wise collection company wise
collection. Keeping Patient History
-- Diagnosis wise trends
-- View results of a period with statistical and graphical
presentation for quality control.
Labmate does not help in conducting
the lab tests in any way.

functions of LabMate
LabMate is divided into three basic steps:
-- Patient Booking.
-- Result Reporting
-- Lab Management information reporting
First two functions
are the major functions for preparing patient reports. The third function
gives critical controlling reports.
The patient booking consists of:
-- Adding the patient details
-- Marking the tests for the patient
-- Issuing a booking slip, a receipt and a bill
Patient name, Age, Sex, Referring Doctor, Address is the main information
recorded in this step. This record is used in reporting the results of
the patient. After booking the patient details, the tests are marked
double clicking a test in a list of tests. The list of test contains
the charges against each test. Total charges to be
taken from the patient are added automatically and can be seen on the
After booking, a booking slip is printed out and is given to the
This slip becomes reference document for the patient to go to various
departments for sample collection and also can be used as reference document
at the time of delivery of the report. The patient can also be issued
a bill and a receipt after booking.
After carrying out the lab tests the results can be
reported using the booking made against the patients. The result-reporting
module is the
most important part of the Labmate system. It helps in reporting and
printing the lab results. The patients can be chosen in any manner as
It is not important to book patients
at the time of arrival of the patients. The same can be done at any time
before reporting. With this maintenance
of register are necessary and the booking slips, receipts; bills cannot
be issued to the patient. The numbers of tests, which can be reported
at one time for a patient, are unlimited (subject to change). This capability
combined with ease of reporting is one of the strengths of the Labmate
Lab Management & Information Reporting:
The center in-charge requires daily information such
-- Total workload
-- Number of Patients arrived
-- Tests already done
-- Tests not done yet
-- Total Collection Reports done, printed
-- Reports not done, not printed
The Labmate program
provides these reports for better lab management. These reports can be
produced for a day or for a particular period. For
the labs, which have business connections with referencing doctors, labs,
nursing homes, and other such institutions, information on the business
provided by them can be printed on periodic basis. In case of labs, which
are working under panel of some companies, similar kind of, reports can
be produced for billing these companies.
To achieve maximum benefits from the system, Labmate has following features:
-- No preformatted report forms are required.
-- The test parameters such as method, normal values, measurement units
are changeable as and when required.
-- Any new test addition can also be done at any time. The limit is virtually
unlimited. -- Can report any number of tests for one patient.
-- Results are reported for only those tests, which have been selected
for the patient. For example if ESR is to be reported for the patient,
then only ESR results will be printed in the report and not the entire
