“It is a brilliant system and was very easy to install in our existing hospital, connecting the ward to the laboratory by means of a small pipeline” explains Gunn Sjurseike Dale, manager Medical Biochemistry, Stavanger University Hospital in Norway.
“Furthermore, it is a good and simple solution compared to traditional PTS systems because it saves time by not having to pack and unpack the blood samples.”
Before, the phlebotomist used to carry the samples to the laboratory having finished their round which normally takes 2 to 2.5 hours. Now they can send the blood samples continuously one by one as the samples go directly to the laboratory and receive analysis results faster.
“Tempus600 fits perfectly with the Lean Thinking that we work with at Stavanger University Hospital and this has helped staff to understand the brilliance in sending the samples immediately to get faster analysis results.”, says Gunn Sjurseike Dale.
“By changing the process of blood collection, the total turnaround time has reduced dramatically and the treatment of the patient can begin sooner. Patients can be treated and send home earlier.”, Gunn Sjurseike Dale says:
“We find that the quality of the samples is better when transported by Tempus600 system, compared to transporting the samples the traditional way.”
