Tulsa Medical Laboratory Implements Orchard Enterprise Pathology for Efficiency Gains

CARMEL, Ind., Sept. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Orchard Software announced the implementation of its cloud-hosted enterprise pathology laboratory information system (LIS) solution at Tulsa Medical Laboratory. Tulsa Medical, located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is a comprehensive anatomic pathology lab partnered with multiple regional clinical laboratories that performs a variety of diagnostic services. To manage their complex anatomic pathology processes, various workflows, and wide variety of specimens, they chose to implement Orchard® Enterprise Pathology ™, which was designed to maximize efficiency and quality.  

Orchard Enterprise Pathology was selected to standardize and improve manual, time-consuming workflows that were previously performed across multiple systems and to give the laboratory team more control of their information system, including configuring order entry screens, building reports, and managing their own interfaces.

“Our laboratory was facing a forced upgrade of our legacy LIS at great expense and minimal benefit. We investigated several options, and while there is no shortage of up-to-date LISs for a lab our size, we felt that Orchard’s team was the most responsive and clinically focused, giving them the edge,” said Henry D. Haskell, MD, Medical Director, Tulsa Medical Laboratory. “Although we were under a tight deadline, Orchard successfully implemented their new system, and we now have an LIS that meets our clients’ expectations and should serve our laboratory well for many years to come.”

“Orchard Software is proud to partner with innovative customers like Tulsa Medical Laboratory who strive to continually improve their ability to provide the best service to their clients and patients,” said Billie Whitehurst, CEO of Orchard Software. “With Orchard Enterprise Pathology, Tulsa Medical Laboratory can combine processes within a single solution, eliminating the need for multiple systems. This consolidation will greatly improve efficiency and support the lab’s contribution to patient care.”
