Case Study 2
For a major pharmaceutical company

Challenge
Eliminate manual procedures for all areas of multi-site laboratory operations including test ordering, specimen tracking, laboratory instrumentation integration, reporting, and results delivery.

Solution
  • Implement a web-based laboratory information management system (LIMS) to integrate the various sites to serve the needs of over 350 users.
  • Define a serial network interface (SNI) solution to network and integrate disparate laboratory instrumentation utilizing the Health Level Seven (HL7) standard.
  • Research commercially available solutions and lead the request for information / proposal (RFI/RFP) phases including evaluation and selection an appropriate vendor and product.
  • Conduct the laboratory process analysis and improvement which led to system requirements for a LIMS.
  • Manage all aspects of the systems development lifecycle including analysis, requirements, design, development, implementation, and validation including compliance with Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) and 21 CFR Part 11.

Result
The laboratories realized increased capacity allowing an expansion of laboratory analysis services, a 50% improvement in turnaround times from initiating a request to producing final results, a reduction of three full time equivalency resources per year, and reduced expenditures on external contract laboratories.
