Date:1/28/2010

Sunquest announced Valley Medical Center has licensed Sunquest Collection Manager™ automated specimen collection software

(PRWEB) January 28, 2010 -- Sunquest, a leading provider of healthcare diagnostic information technology and outreach solutions, announced that Valley Medical Center, in Renton, Washington, has licensed Sunquest Collection Manager™ automated specimen collection software. Valley Medical Center selected Collection Manager as part of a quality initiative to improve labeling of specimens coming to the laboratory from the emergency department.

Valley Medical Center is the largest nonprofit healthcare provider between Seattle and Tacoma, serving over 400,000 residents. In addition to the hospital, the Medical Center operates a network of more than two dozen primary care, urgent care and specialty clinics throughout Southeast King County. Located in Renton, Washington, VMC offers medical, surgical and 24-hour emergency care as a Level III Trauma Center.

“Our quality department did extensive research based on feedback from the laboratory concerning mislabeled specimens,” said VMC’s project manager Denise E. Bell. “We decided to invest in newer technology to improve specimen collection and ensure that technicians would have access to labels when and where they need them. Collection Manager™ rectified our labeling issues.” The new software is currently deployed in the emergency department, but will be expanded throughout the organization in 2010.

“We are pleased that Valley Medical Center has selected Collection Manager software,” commented Kelly Feist, vice president of marketing for Sunquest. “After implementing Collection Manager, our customers have reported achieving significant across-the-board successes in their collection processes, including zero mislabeled specimens, eliminating redundant testing, processes and steps, reducing staffing requirements, and logging faster turnaround times.”
