Streamlined lab helps Saint Joseph improve efficiency: Automation, integrated platform reduce hands-on tasks

A few years ago, the growing shortage of qualified lab personnel was hitting Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, California, particularly hard. With six stand-alone analyzers for chemistry and immunoassay testing and no automation, all of the lab’s sample preparation and testing processes were manual, hindering its efforts to improve efficiency and productivity. When it was time to replace the existing analyzers, the lab conducted an extensive search for a solution that would fit its needs. It landed on an integrated platform from Roche that consolidated six platforms down to two and fully automated its specimen handling and preparation, bringing dramatic efficiency benefits to the lab almost overnight.
