Siemens Healthineers Launches AtellicaTM PM 1.0 Software for Simplified Lab Operations

Nov 08, 2016

· Centralizes visibility and control of laboratory operations

· Enables labs to manage alerts, remotely control instruments, automation and IT, and monitor testing and onboard inventory—all from one screen

· Increases efficiency with customizable alerts and exception management procedures for laboratories to receive immediate alerts for at-risk samples

· Improves outcomes with robust process analytics, including turnaround times, testing volumes, and automation utilization

 

Today Siemens Healthineers announced the launch of the AtellicaTM PM 1.0 Software1, a customizable process management solution that enables laboratories to oversee process data for their automation system, IT and connected instruments—thus simplifying management of day-to-day laboratory tasks.

 

The software enables labs to develop a central 3-D control panel for laboratory personnel to monitor and navigate all connected systems without physically walking from system to system. To further streamline lab operations, the software tracks levels of onboard reagents and consumables, alerting operators of low-consumable levels in real-time.

 

“Atellica PM 1.0 Software simplifies laboratory operations, enabling laboratory technicians to spend less time on process-related tasks and more time on what matters most—patient results,” said Franz Walt, President, Laboratory Diagnostics, Siemens Healthineers. “This innovative software centralizes all instrument data onto one screen, thus enabling our customers to keep their laboratories up and running, without actually running around.”

 

With AtellicaTM PM 1.0 Software, designated operators can customize alerts, dashboards, and priority sample rules, as well as manage sample and workflow exceptions. The software can be configured so that operators can access the software simultaneously with customized settings based on their specific responsibilities. They can also view different laboratories, locations, or sites. When connected to Aptio® Automation, AtellicaTM PM 1.0 Software¹ has the flexibility to connect to both Siemens and third-party systems2.

 

Further, the software’s reporting features enable real-time assessment of key metrics such as turnaround times, testing volumes, or more specific management goals—eliminating the need to export data to another platform.

 

 

AtellicaTM PM 1.0 Software1 is now available in the U.S. and certain other countries worldwide.
