NovoPath GYN Cytology Reporting Module Increases Efficiency: CytoTouch Increases Both Speed and Precision
Princeton, NJ, Nov 21, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
NovoPath, Inc., a leader in Best-of-Breed Anatomic Pathology Software Solutions, now offers CytoTouch(TM) for touch-screen GYN cytology reporting. This module provides a breakthrough in efficiency for the productivity-conscience high-volume cytology lab.
The cytology lab is constantly striving to achieve the highest levels of both speed and precision - an accomplishment that often seems elusive. Experience dictates that one goal would be reached only at the expense of the other. NovoPath's solution to cytology reporting has defeated the old paradigm. CytoTouch dramatically reduces the time necessary to report GYN results as it increases accuracy - creating a win-win on all fronts.
CytoTouch incorporates a barcode scanner and easy-to-use touch-screen monitor, thereby decreasing the technologist's need for computer interaction time to report GYN cases. By parlaying the inherent advantages of barcode technology (both 1-D and 2-D), positive specimen I.D. is virtually guaranteed with CytoTouch, thus dramatically reducing data entry errors.
To begin reporting, the cytotech simply (1) scans the slide's barcode, (2) touches the large checkboxes for relevant codes on the screen, and (3) touches "verify" - recording results in mere seconds. The entire process occurs with simultaneous fingertip access to patient history and assurance that the lab's security needs are being met. An integrated customizable "electronic screening sheet" permits the duplication of familiar manual processes or the easy addition of new processes, as it works seamlessly with existing QA processes.
The touch-screen based CytoTouch module operates without the need for either keyboard or mouse - an onscreen keyboard is incorporated, but rarely needed. This streamlined hardware configuration minimizes PC clutter, thus freeing up valuable workspace in the lab.
Rick Callahan, VP of Sales and Marketing at NovoPath encourages AP labs to consider this touch-screen GYN reporting module, "With the increased focus on efficiency in the cytology lab, there is no better investment than CytoTouch."
