Apex Laboratory Information System
The Apex LIS application automates management of local testing for all popular lab equipment. Delivered preconfigured for your devices on a Windows 7 Professional workstation up to 8 local lab devices can be connected to the Apex LIS.
The Apex LIS can be connected to your Electronic Health Record (EHR) or Practice Management (PM) application with the optional HL7 Patient Demographics, Orders and/or Results modules.
A robust suite of regulatory compliance tools are included that automate the process of collecting, managing and reporting lab compliance.
The Apex LIS provides the user with an extensive set of configuration options that allow the user to configure the application to match the needs of their lab and practice.
The Apex LIS provides the ability to enter lab requests using your choice from multiple entry modules designed to be easy to use and fit the workflow in your lab.
The Apex LIS can also automatically accept orders from your Electronic Health Record (EHR) application using the international HL7 standard. When HL7 orders are deployed there is no operator action required to create test requests and specimen labels may be automatically produced in the correct quantity for each panel. The application supports the creation of both lab appointments as well as “Standing Orders” for both local and ref lab testing.

The Apex LIS generates specimen labels in formats consistent with device requirements. You are able to control both quantity (by panel) and location of barcode printer.
An optional Barcode Module allows you to print specimen labels from existing workstations where draw is performed or in Exam Rooms.
Processing results can be configured to automatically deliver results to your EHR or you can specify (by device) that manual approval of results by lab tech is required prior to releasing print or EHR.
The Apex LIS includes the ability to configure all of your “Quick Tests” (e.g. flu, strep,…) for rapid entry which then delivers results to your EHR.
The Apex LIS generates a full size report (8 1/2 by 11 inch) with your logo at the top and patient information. Lab results are neatly displayed on the report.
A master copy of the results can be automatically saved as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file on the Apex LIS workstation (or your server) and are instantly accessible when needed for re-print, fax or e-mail.
Lab results can be:
All lab results are also saved as data to facilitate analysis and comparison. The Apex Data Mining subsystem allows you to easily assess trends at either the patient or group level.
At the patient level the Data Mining subsystem is able to produce comparative results reports as well as graphs of analyte observation values.
At the group level the user is able to enter a search criteria against the entire patient population and retrieve all matching results sets. Search filters may include: sex, age and date range for observations.
Analyte filtering provides a complete set of Boolean filtering operators including: <, >, =, outside and inside ranges.
The matching data may then be exported to an Excel spreadsheet.
