DESCRIPTION Pathreports.in is a real-time pathology reporting system which is designed in such a way that it can be used by anyone, from a small neighbourhood pathology lab to a sizeable laboratory. At the end user level, it provides the facility to view the reports over the internet or on their mobile. Users can also use their WAP/GPRS enabled cell phone and view their reports from ttp://m.pathreports.in. On the pathology level it provides a complete software solution to manage and maintain pathology data. Although mostly similar to commonly available pathology software, it offers a lot of enhanced features including high level security, data privacy and easy usability. The pathologist also gets features such as viewing dashboard which contains important statistics like day-wise earnings of pathology and number of reports generated. The advanced search feature allows him to quickly search customers under his pathology while the report creation interface is as easy as composing an email.
EVALUATION By enabling the patient to view his pathology report online or through SMS, this application can significantly reduce the number of trips to the lab, time wasted in waiting for the report to come and so on. Hence, it helps to make this part of the treatment process hassle-free for the patient. On the other hand, it serves pathologists who need an interface which is more flexible and has an advanced functionality for maintaining and managing their pathology. Through this pathology application, they can easily manage customers, create reports and have complete control over their part of the application.
Savings, both for the patient, in terms of travel costs and loss of work-time, and the pathologist, in terms of reduced paper and printing costs is an obvious advantage derived from the use of this webware.
