Changing to a single, national system
As part of our Vision to become a leader in science and technology, Australian Clinical Labs will upgrade its Laboratory Information System (LIS) to Ultra in South Western Victoria. The upgrade to Ultra further strengthens our ability to deliver high quality pathology services to doctors and patients throughout Victoria.
To minimise impacts on our referrers and patients, Ultra will go-live across all sites in Victoria’s South West region on one of two Saturdays:
• 1st September 2018: Portland and Warrnambool
• 17th November 2018: Geelong and Colac
By upgrading these laboratories to Ultra, Clinical Labs completes its national program to replace LabTrak and achieves its aim to operate a single system at all labs across Australia. From the cutover dates listed above, LabTrak becomes an archived system where patient histories are stored for reference when necessary.
Importantly, this significant IT system change will allow local services to more easily draw on the expertise of over 95 specialist pathologists across Australia when required.
To help navigate the change, Clinical Labs has produced a companion booklet for referrers and practice managers. Download the file to read more.
