Integrated healthcare provider Primary Health Care has joined forces with Siemens Healthineers to deploy more than 70 Atellica Solution1 immunoassay and clinical chemistry analyzers. This marks Siemens Healthineers largest contract for in vitro diagnostics testing in Australia, and one of its most robust sales of the Atellica Solution. The analyzers are integrated with Atellica Diagnostics IT solutions and will connect to the companys strategic partner Inpecos FlexLab track for total lab automation to deliver a high throughput multidisciplinary solution with capabilities that are transforming the clinical laboratory landscape across the country.
The strategic engagement couples Primarys expansive network of more than 2,300 national pathology collection sites with workflow improvement and expanded clinical capabilities from Siemens Healthineers to establish a new level of automated diagnostic delivery. Through deep analytics, and intelligent data and process management, Atellica Diagnostics IT software will provide Primary with improved visibility, flexibility and control over its entire operation.
This new collaboration will allow us to take Primarys operational efficiencies to new heights, said Wes Lawrence, Chief Executive of Pathology at Primary Health Care. Thanks to this next-generation technology, were able to increase productivity, and focus more on value-adding lab activities and less on sample and instrument handling. In doing so, processes will be reduced and testing quality will be advanced, ultimately helping us increase cost savings and focus on the human impact of our work.
Siemens Healthineers and Inpeco SA will deliver this fully automated multidisciplinary solution that will vastly simplify clinical and operational workflows and help Primary achieve better outcomes at much lower costs.
Healthcare systems are constantly under pressure to drive efficiency, and to improve both clinical and business outcomes, said Deepak Nath, Ph.D., President, Laboratory Diagnostics Siemens Healthineers. At Siemens Healthineers weve designed and built innovations that enable our customers to optimize processes and add value for laboratory staff and their healthcare facilities.
