The power of LIMS: WinPath Enterprise

The market leader in Laboratory Information Management Systems

WinPath Enterprise is relied upon by the majority of healthcare organisations across the UK to support safe, reliable and highly efficient patient care. Our fully scalable and interoperable system is intuitive to use, minimises manual tasks and allows your team to get more done in less time.

WinPath Enterprise is a multidisciplinary LIMS which comprehensively supports all the individual key disciplines including:

  • Blood Sciences
  • Blood Transfusion
  • Microbiology
  • Cellular Pathology
  • Tissue Typing
  • Newborn Screening

Revolutionise your workflow

Our scalable end-to-end LIMS solution allows you to implement best practice workflows, maximise efficiency and comply with all relevant statutory requirements. WinPath Enterprise enables single, multi-site and pathology networks to work smarter and achieve more by:

  • Streamlining pathology processes so samples can be analysed more efficiently
  • Optimising pre-analytical processes with auto-registration
  • Reviewing real-time data to monitor workflow and identify bottlenecks
  • Complying with all statutory requirements and generating automated reports to track achievements against targets
  • Seamlessly integrating with existing OCS, PAS and EPR systems, and securely sharing information across sites/networks
  • Transferring risk away from Trust IT teams and reducing requirement for in-house disaster recovery with our hosted service

End-to-end interoperability

Interoperability is core to every CliniSys system so that you can benefit from ‘best in breed’ systems rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

WinPath Enterprise interfaces seamlessly with incumbent hospital information systems, including local care record services, supporting the drive for greater efficiency highlighted in Lord Carter’s second stage review of pathology services.

Our software employs standard HL7 messaging for all external systems and interfaces successfully with all major Patient Administration Systems, Hospital Information Support Systems and Electronic Patient Record Systems including iPM, Cerner Millennium, DXC Lorenzo and CliniSys ICE.

Critically, we take on full responsibility for implementing interfaces with your existing systems as part of our deployment – and we have a 100% deployment success rate.

Key features

  • Full business analytic toolset provides business intelligence and data mining functionality enabling easy access and reporting on user definable key performance indicators. Graphical real-time view showing performance against service level agreements and turnaround times. Supports cost savings through optimised productivity, reduction in effort and reduced workload in gathering information.
  • Point of Care Testing compatible: Integrate with and manage all hospital PoCT devices via a single centralised platform, regardless of manufacturer.
  • Single, fully interoperable system: WinPath Enterprise supports, via its embedded integration engine, multiple connections to multiple Patient Administration Systems (PAS), Hospital Information Support Systems (HISS), Order Communication Systems (OCS), Results Reporting Systems (RR) and incumbent customer integration engines using healthcare industry standard messaging.
  • Logistic management to track chain of custody: Eliminates the risk of lost samples. Provides laboratories with advance notification of workload so you can improve resource management and identify workflow bottlenecks and streamline processes.
  • Laboratory automation and instrument communication: Including the ability to route data to one or more outbound connections. Our analyser data management module enables multiple hosts to receive the same instrument data, which is essential for emerging ‘hub & spoke’ laboratories in line with network consolidation
  • Healthcare Customer Relationship Management: A holistic view of service performance, LIMS data, and customer engagement to create relationship profiles for organisations, healthcare professionals, providers and patients, personalising the pathology experience. Empowers your organisation to retain business, grow and easily engage with valued customers, at the right time, with the right resources.
