OhioHealth Installs Newest Version of Sysmex's Hematology Middleware, Sysmex WAM(TM) 4.0

MUNDELEIN, Ill., Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Sysmex America, Inc., a global leader in hematology diagnostic systems and OhioHealth, a family of not-for-profit, faith-based hospitals and healthcare organizations serving patients in central Ohio for over 100 years, announced today that OhioHealth has completed implementation of Sysmex's latest software release, Version 4.0, of its Sysmex WAM hematology data management system.

The latest version of Sysmex WAM, Version 4.0 will support OhioHealth achieve its long term growth strategies of improved turnaround time and lowering review rates. Already processing nearly 2,500 hematology orders per day, OhioHealth plans to leverage the new features in Version 4.0, including an alerts module and the re-designed user interface software to enhance the user experience. "This new version of Sysmex WAM includes all the features I could have ever wanted," explains Kim Moser, Laboratory Supervisor. "It's unusual to work with a vendor that really listens to customers and incorporates our feedback into its products."

Five of OhioHealth's hospitals have been using Sysmex hematology analyzers, automation and Sysmex WAM since August 2007. Four of its hospitals, Riverside Methodist Hospital, Grant Medical Center, Dublin Methodist Hospital and Doctors Hospital are each equipped with the Sysmex HST-N(TM) automation line (most with two XE-2100(TM) automated hematology analyzers and a slidemaker/stainer) and the fifth, Grady Memorial Hospital, uses the Sysmex XE-2100 hematology analyzer and XS-1000i(TM) analyzer. All of these hospitals' hematology equipment and automation are connected to OhioHealth's enterprise network and are interfaced to a single Sysmex WAM system with both multi-site and multi-LIS capability. Sysmex WAM interfaces to two laboratory information systems at OhioHealth: McKesson's Horizon Lab and Soft Computer Corporation's Softlab.

"We were very impressed with the energy, hard work and professionalism of our Sysmex implementation team," said Michael Wiles, Laboratory Manager at Ohio Health. "Our go-live was smooth and uneventful, just as it should be."

Sysmex expects to officially launch the Sysmex WAM Version 4.0 to its prospective customers later this fall. "With nearly 100 Sysmex WAM systems installed in the U.S. and Canada, OhioHealth represents one of our larger and more complex implementations," explains John Kershaw, President and CEO for Sysmex America, Inc. "This is a proving ground for future customers. We are excited to get such positive early feedback."
