Company Background
=========================================================================

Our goal is to provide you with the last APLIS you will ever purchase. We do this by staying in touch with our clients and offering significant upgrades on a regular basis.

Security
=========================================================================

Progeny provides a simple role based security capability, using industry standard encrypted user ids and passwords, password complexity requirements, forced changes and automated logouts after a user specified period of inactivity.

Bar Code Capability
=========================================================================

All facets of workflow processing within Progeny are barcode enabled. Barcoding and tracking are so tightly integrated into Progeny that the APLIS cannot be purchased without tracking capability. This is what helps to make asset tracking so simple to use and 'behind the scenes'.

Data Warehousing
=========================================================================

Some vendors are forced to utilize data warehousing to support management reporting because of the impact on system performance. Because of the superior performance of our database system foundation, we can provide a comprehensive collection of management reports that may be requested at any time for real time, current production operation information.

Results Distribution
=========================================================================

Results can be distributed via a myriad of mechanisms. Interfaces to EMRs, both HL7 and custom are supported. Results can also be printed, faxed, or may available via the web. Results can also be distributed via multiple mechanisms simultaneously.

Maintenance/ Support
=========================================================================

We provide industry best maintenance and support. Our goal is to answer support call or emails within minutes, not hour or days.

Accessioning Features
=========================================================================

Progeny can be configured to receive order information from a multitude of sources. This information automatically displays when a barcoded requisition is scanned at accessioning. Additionally, various quality commentary or clinician requests may be logged at this as well.

Test Set-up for LIS
=========================================================================

There are over 40 different configuration files that allow an organization to tailor Progeny to fit their unique LIS and workflow requirements.

Equipment Interfaces (LIS)
=========================================================================

Progeny can be interfaced to virtually any of your laboratory instruments. Over the years, we've become quite adept at instrument interfaces.

Surgical Pathology, Cytopathology, Dermatopathology and/or Autopsy Features (AP)
=========================================================================

One of the truly unique features of Progeny is that it is driven by a user defined workflow engine. This allows Progeny to function differently for as many different case types as your laboratory supports. For instance, progeny supports many unique features that enable the APLIS to support surgical, cytology, nongyn, autopsy, and molecular resulting paradigms. As our clients requirements grow, we are in a position to address those needs quickly and efficiently.

Electronic Signature
=========================================================================

This feature is included at no additional charge and is inherent in the 'one button' signoff process

Image Capture
=========================================================================

This feature is included at no additional charge. Images display in inquiry and patient reports can be configured to present images virtually anywhere on the report.

Patient Lookups
=========================================================================

There are a multitude of ways to look up patient information. Patient full or partial name, MRN, SSN, alternate MRN, collection dates, are just some of the more common search criteria.

Internet Reporting
=========================================================================

This feature is available to all our clients. Reports can be retrieved and printed via a secure web site.

Billing Interfaces
=========================================================================

Billing system interface are supported. Industry standards, such as HL7, as well as propriety interfaces are supported.

Voice Recognition
=========================================================================

Voice recognition is supported at no additional charge. We have a large client with over 20 pathologists that dictate all of their diagnoses via voice recognition.

Workload Analysis
=========================================================================

This is a standard feature of our product. Trends and spikes can be easily monitored via our standard reporting system. Additionally, the user may create and automate as many reports or triggers as they would like to use.

Quality Control
=========================================================================

We believe in quality control and quality assurance 'before, during, and after' the workflow process. Users have the ability to view and enter quality commentary as the process specimen, blocks, or slides. Managers can pull various management reports and view real time data to assure themselves of a higher quality product.

Vendor Financial Stability
=========================================================================

PathView is a privately owned company, with no long term debts or liabilities. We have operated with a net profit since our inception over 20 years ago.

Select List of Users
=========================================================================

We value our clients time and privacy so we must regretfully submit that we may only provide a list of system users once the final stage of APLIS selection process is reached. At that time, we will gladly provide contacts to pathologists, histotechnologists, lab managers, and LIS administrators.

Other Features
=========================================================================

Progeny is loaded with features that allow the APLIS to manage your workflow process. Everything, however, comes down to how work is performed in YOUR lab. Please call or email us and tell us what your objectives are. Together, we'll craft a solution that be the last APLIS you will ever purchase.
