PRINCETON, NJ, September 4, 2012 – NovoPath, Inc., a leader in Anatomic Pathology (AP) Best-of-Breed Software Solutions, announces the first smartphone apps for Android and Apple users, enabling secure on-the-go access to full-length AP reports. The implementation of NovoNotifier Mobile means clinicians receiving AP reports from NovoPath partner laboratories now have a unique tool at their disposal, assisting in their quest to provide the very best care to their patients. NovoNotifier Mobile will be featured on the NovoPath booth (#602) at the CAP ’12 Meeting, September 9-12, in San Diego.
According to a recent report from iPharma Connect 2012, over 80% of physicians are currently using smartphones, with adoption increasing at a tremendous rate. Via NovoNotifier Mobile, Anatomic Pathology reports are now available in a continuous real-time portable format to many of these doctors. NovoNotifier Mobile places results directly into the hands of the busy clinician, regardless of their location – be it in a point-of-care setting, at home, or anywhere in between. This immediate access to lab generated anatomic pathology test results, enabled by mobile AP reporting, empowers the clinician to respond quicker – a significant improvement for the patient anxiously awaiting their diagnostic or prognostic outcome.
To access NovoNotifier Mobile, the clinician (working with a pathology lab using the NovoPath AP LIS Software Solution Version 8.0) is provided secure discreet user ID-based access to their patient’s anatomic pathology reports. Following initial setup, AP reports are automatically sent via unattended delivery, with a “signal” sent to their smartphone notifying the physician that new reports are awaiting their review, at their convenience. After viewing the report, the clinician has the option to preserve or delete the file – knowing it will be maintained on the lab’s website. This affords clinicians the flexibility provided by immediate access, without tying up all the memory in their handheld.
Wally Soufi, NovoPath CEO, commented, “Mobile access means our partner lab’s clinicians no longer need to schedule time in their busy day to view web-based patient reports. Via NovoNotifier Mobile, these same clinicians can now view AP reports in their entirety – in the same customized format developed by their pathology laboratory – anytime, anyplace. The mobile view is 100% identical to the reports they have come to rely upon on their desktop. NovoPath is pleased to be the first to provide instant access to portable AP reports, and believes that this decrease in turn-around-time will translate to even better patient outcomes.”
