Solution eliminates need for multiple devices for tracking specimen collection, barcode scanning and label printing

TUCSON, Ariz., Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunquest Information Systems Inc. today announced the general availability

of Sunquest Clinical Collect™ for Android, iOS and Windows, enabling nursing staff to use a single device for positive patient identification in the laboratory sample collection process and other applications. The solution  simplifies workflow and reduces complexity, which enhances patient safety.

"We use Sunquest for our specimen collection system today and have plans to roll it out housewide," said Barry Farrar, MT(ASCP), LIS administrator for Huntsville Hospital in Huntsville, AL. "Nursing in particular is challenged with using many different systems to take care of their patients. We don't want them having to wear a tool belt to manage different devices for each system. Sunquest's solution helps make the life of the nurse much easier by consolidating to a single mobile device that they can use for many different systems for communication, medication administration and collecting lab specimens. We are looking forward to using this in the future for blood transfusions as well."

Sunquest Clinical Collect features new technology that takes the device beyond its original smartphone capabilities and enables Bluetooth printing and scanning to identify patients in a single workflow. Architecturally, Sunquest Clinical Collect is designed so that the bulk of the processing burden is performed on a separate server, rather than the user device. This optimizes device speed and efficiency for the nurse end-users.

"Sunquest has a long-standing commitment to creating solutions that increase the efficiency of lab operations and seamlessly integrate across the health system," said Matthew Hawkins, president of Sunquest. "Sunquest Clinical Collect exemplifies this commitment and simplifies workflows for nurses and other clinicians. Ultimately, this solution helps our clients enhance patient safety and deliver the highest quality care."
