Web-based public health LIMS enhances responsiveness to emerging threats
Starlims Technologies, a provider of laboratory information management systems, has announced that a public health department in the US has selected its Starlims web-based software to manage its laboratory informatics needs.
The contract, valued at approximately $1.2 million, includes licenses for the company’s software, first year maintenance and professional services. With this new implementation, 20 out of the 50 states in the US will utilize the company’s public health laboratory information management services, claimed the company.
Starlims will be used to manage information relating to clinical and environmental testing across the state, replacing existing commercial and custom systems and ensuring adherence to workflows and standard operating procedures.
The company documents all phases of laboratory testing, and provides a complete and accurate audit trail of all testing and reporting activities, aiding compliance with standards defined by agencies such as the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the United States Association of Public Health Laboratories.
Jeff Ferguson, COO of Starlims Corporation, said: We are delighted by this new project, which reflects our commitment to public health and to the public sector in general. This new implementation is a welcome opportunity to continue contributing to the vision set forth by the PHIN. Starlims’s contribution lies in providing a web-based information management infrastructure that facilitates accelerated analysis of incoming data, as well as information sharing and collaboration across departments and agencies.
