Reduce manual data entry and potential transcription errors in Physician Office Labs

For more than a decade, over 2,000 hospitals throughout the U.S. have depended on Alere RALS data management systems to connect point-of-care devices, electronically capture test results at the bedside and transfer that data to the patient record. Today, that same connectivity is now available, and affordable, for Medical Practices and Physician Office Labs (POLs) with our Alere RALS Pathway system - designed to capture the the patient tests you run in the lab every day.

Connectivity for the tests you run in your office lab everyday... [Sell Sheet]

Comes pre-configured and installed on a virtual machine for ease of implementation

  • Collects test results from Alere devices used in Primary and Secondary Care

  • Eliminates the need for multiple software or hardware dedicated to a vendor’s specific device

  • Provides access from anywhere/anytime with full functionality

  • Supports result, operator, patient and instrument management

  • Manages all QC in a single system

  • Includes a wide range of reports

  • Can be interfaced to an EMR / EHR / LIS

Connectivity based on proven Alere RALS platform used in 2000+ hospitals:  [Demo]

Depending on the device, data can be transferred from devices to the Alere RALS Pathway system via an Alere RALS Dataport, a Alere RALS Remote Connect (RRC) PC connection, or a Direct Network Connection. Results can be via Alere RALS Pathway viewed anytime/anywhere on a PC connected to the POL network and can then be sent to the EMR / EHR / LIS for posting on to the patient's record/chart.

Device Dependent Communication The Alere RALS system is interfaced to point-of-care market share leaders in glucose, coagulation, blood gas and electrolyte and cardiac markers. This position relates to real data management connectivity - bi-directional communication and full data management of patient test results (as well as operating QC data, etc.) not just capturing test data only and moving it along to the LIS.

Uni-directional Connectivity In this one-way communication, the data manager can only read information from the device and cannot upload information to the device.

Bi-directional Connectivity In this two-way communication, the data manager can upload data to the device in addition to reading data from it. For devices that feature bi-directional capability, the Alere RALS system can upload a wide range of data including lists of valid operators, reagent lot information (lot #, ranges, etc.), and device configuration information. This is one of the key differences between a "data mover" and a "data manager".
