Analytics platform will provide sophisticated insights into financial and clinical data
SUNNYVALE, Calif., November 17, 2015 — Diagnostic Laboratory Services, Inc. (DLS), the largest locally owned clinical testing laboratory in Hawaii, today announced an agreement with Viewics, Inc., a provider of healthcare analytics solutions. The Viewics analytics platform, Viewics Health Insighter (VHI), will aggregate data from DLS’ clinical and microbiology laboratory information systems (LIS), as well as its XIFIN billing system, providing real-time information and insights across clinical, operational, and financial areas of the organization.
“Our organization is expanding quite rapidly. We’re bringing on a number of new clinics, and it’s important for us to gain a deep understanding of the profitability of those clinics so that we can manage them properly,” said Richard Okazaki, CEO and President of DLS. “Having a clear and accurate picture of our operational data will enable us to adjust our staffing levels and manage test utilization appropriately.”
As a key provider of healthcare and laboratory services in Hawaii, DLS provides critical population health statistics and public health information to the Hawaii Department of Health. The Viewics platform will streamline the process for DLS, significantly cutting down on IT time and resources required to generate reports and analyses, such as clinical antibiograms, diabetes data, and toxicology reports.
“As reimbursement cuts continue to pose challenges for our customers, they need financial clarity to make effective decisions about the services they provide and locations they serve,” said Tim Kuruvilla, chief commercial officer of Viewics. “Given the strategic nature of this initiative for DLS, I commend them for the rigorous process they went through in selecting a partner. We’re honored to be working with them to meet a variety of their analytics needs.”
