Lab Specimen Status

Many medical professionals have found issues with keeping track of the progress of specimens they send to get analyzed and tested at laboratories. They often struggle to find out if a specimen was received and how far along the analysis of the specimen is. Implementing tracking can be complicated, but it doesn’t need to be. 

A digital solution can be used to create a simple method for specimens to be recorded, identified, and tracked throughout the analysis, and communication engagement automation can be leveraged to update stakeholders on the status of specimens automatically.  

Introducing the Lab Specimen Tracking use case, a complete solution that leverages an easy to manage communication workflow that can be personalized to the needs of each company to create a quick and easy tracking method that can easily handle individual or large groups of specimens. 

The solution makes use of digital forms, database automation, and dynamic emails to track status and update stakeholders based on status changes. 

Keys to the Solution 

SimplyCast anticipated the need for laboratories to find a better way to keep stakeholders up to date. When considering the challenges that labs face, three main building blocks were identified as ways to leverage existing and proven tools to answer those challenges: 

Key 1 – Specimen IDs 

By generating IDs for specimens, no personally identifiable data needs to be paired physically with the specimen, allowing that data to stay secure throughout tracking. 

Key 2 – Tracking Forms 

Tracking forms allow the ID to be submitted to update the ID’s specimen to a stage associated with that form and can be submitted without needing any other data. Options for bulk ID updating also exist. 

Key 3 – Inform Stakeholders 

Whenever a specimen hits a new stage, stakeholders associated with the specimen in question can be notified automatically that it has reached a new stage and can even be sent information about what has been found so far.
