The ULTRA Solution

Cirdan’s ULTRA solution is a dedicated LIS, which has the primary purpose of meeting the needs of the clinicians, scientists, pathologists, administrators and patients who depend on it.

ULTRA is designed for high volume data entry with minimal user input required. It has evolved around a need for fast and accurate work flows and the move towards a paperless lab environment.

Multidisciplinary

ULTRA provides end-to-end clinical, analytical, and managerial solutions for all laboratory disciplines including: Biochemistry, Microbiology, Transfusion Medicine, Haematology, Immunology, Histopathology, Cytology, Genomics and others.

Modular

Based around the core application, ULTRA uses specialist laboratory modules designed to work as standalone or fully integrated solutions. To provide options to laboratories the interface to the specialist modules is deployed through either a web based interface or Windows compliant thick clients.

The modular approach to each discipline allows for change within each discipline to be managed without impacting overall system performance, reducing the risk associated with reconfiguring the parent application.

An ULTRA ‘Outreach’ module is an external third party interface that can encompass functionality such as:

  • Pre-analytics
  • Order-comms
  • Results Communications
  • Laboratory outpatient programs
  • Collection processing
  • Appointment scheduling
  • Direct patient POC
  • Blood donor management
  • Digital Pathology

“It is very reassuring to have Cirdan LIS support in place at any time of the day. The support team have proved to be an invaluable resource.” Nigel Roberts

Haematology Lab Manager, Royal United Hospital Bath NHS Foundation Trust

Digital Pathology

Cirdan has adopted a vendor neutral approach to digital pathology solutions to allow customers choice. By treating digital pathology solutions as another ‘module’, ULTRA can develop interfaces to a number of solutions and adapt and expand these as requirements develop.

Reporting

Details

Multimedia patient reporting using HTML technology allows users to design reports including tables, charts, images, and hyperlinks. Integrated industry standard management reporting tools allows users to develop their own worklists, dashboards or reports.

Data Analytics

Details

ULTRA offers the customer access to a range of advanced data analytical tools, allowing them to mine their data for administrative, clinical, research or administrative needs.
A key feature of ULTRA’s data handling is the access offered to users. All data stored on the system is treated as ‘customer data’ and the customer has access to this data for whatever purpose, including migration to another LIS system, should the need arise.

Security

Details

ULTRA administers highly secure and confidential patient data with full concordance with data protection principles. Security and access is controlled via the ULTRA consent model, ensuring that only those that require access to specific information can get that information. By enabling customised control of access, patients and staff can have confidence in the security and confidentiality of their data within the system.

Billing

Details

The ULTRA billing module is designed to handle billing or costing information that can be integrated with a variety of nance packages. Our experience of interfacing with public and private healthcare billing systems around the world has given Cirdan particular expertise in this area.

Deployment

The way in which ULTRA has been structured allows for the rapid deployment and validation of the system.

Training

Training is designed to empower the users and reduce dependency on Cirdan for the everyday or mundane tasks involved in running a laboratory.

Access To SMEs

When task complexity is too much for the user there is ready access to Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) for support, installation and business improvement projects. Additionally, ULTRA can be operated with advanced failover and disaster recovery plans, offering peace of mind and a clear risk reduction strategy for managers and administrative staff.

Future Proofing

ULTRA has been designed to evolve as the clinical and technological requirements of pathology laboratories change. Cirdan is constantly looking for the next breakthrough and how it can be incorporated.

Pathology Horizons

Our annual and open conference, Pathology Horizons is dedicated to seeking out these advancing technologies and techniques and gauging response from a broad spectrum of users.

“Our engagement with Cirdan to develop the interface has been invigorating – they have clearly seen the need, have dedicated resources to the project and in a short period of time, delivered an outstanding product.” Peter O'Halloran

CIO, National Blood Authority, Australia
