diagnostics and uses web services to interface with a reimbursement company. OTraces is validating their breast cancer diagnostic at Russia’s leading cancer research center and the BioIT Solutions web-based offering can support their operations with ease. Finally, NXPharmagen was buried under a pile of spreadsheets, but now uses the BioIT platform to analyze and interpret Biomarker data.
These companies recognize the shift in expectations brought about by modern internet and mobility technologies, including:
Physicians, patients and business partners expect convenient, on-line access
Virtual companies must be able to collaborate effectively over the internet
Advanced diagnostics require sophisticated information management and analysis tools
In Mike’s view, the keys to building an Enterprise Solution for emerging diagnostics companies are:
Informatics and Research should develop concurrently, not sequentially
Support the entire diagnostics lifecycle, from sample receipt, laboratory processing, reagent supply, report preparation, approvals, billing and sales force analysis
Enable physicians and partners to access their information via secure web portals that reflect your brand and reinforce customer relationships
Tools must be adaptive, yet support regulatory and business requirements for data integrity, traceability, and auditability
Strive for a single source of truth
