For improved process management and optimization, laboratories can use Atellica® Process Manager, which combines a centralized command center with built-in business analytics.

  • Using the built-in analytics and business intelligence tools, standardize and improve clinical operations throughout the entire laboratory.
  • Identify and resolve problems that occur in the pre-analytic, analytic, and post-analytic stages with advanced performance metrics.
  • Increase workforce productivity with centralized oversight, including the ability to control all systems,* view reagent levels, and review testing exceptions from one screen.
  • Deliver transparent and predictable turnaround times through the implementation of rules and at-risk sample alerts.

Features and benefits

Centralized command center

Walk less. Control more

With this centralized command center, staff can spend less time running from system to system to handle testing activities. Most sample and test management tasks can be completed in real-time by staff members from their workstations or even from other remote locations with the help of an integrated and centralized command center.

  • Use a single screen to remotely operate all systems, monitor reagent levels, and evaluate testing progress.
  • Establish test-specific turnaround time (TAT) guidelines and get notifications when samples approach the lab’s TAT goals.
  • Manage priority samples (e.g., STAT samples) and TAT exceptions to deliver predictable turnaround times.
  • View the real-time process status of automation, IT, and connected instruments.

Robust Analytics and Reporting

Connect data. Enhance performance

By consolidating and analyzing data from disparate sources, Atellica Process Manager can help you measure, monitor, and improve your lab’s performance. With 15 out-of-the-box reports, you can gain deeper insight into workflow challenges and enhance performance.

  • Easily access historical operating information
  • Investigate and improve turnaround time
  • Optimize staff, system, and reagent efficiency
  • Review processing workflow and solution analytics

Sample processing reports

Sample processing reports aid in the investigation and identification of processing errors, sample integrity issues, and peaks in sample throughput. With insights from these reports, you can determine and implement protocols to reduce processing errors and improve turnaround times.

Testing efficiency reports

Testing efficiency reports provide insight into testing volume, throughput, autovalidation, and reagent usage. These dynamic reports allow you to optimize reagent and consumable consumption, improve autovalidation rates, and visualize throughput trends.

Workload efficiency reports

Workload efficiency reports can help you determine the most effective use of automation modules, staff, and systems. With dynamic drill-down data per site, zone, instrument, and staff member, you can identify inefficiencies and implement plans to enhance efficiency.

Turnaround time reports

Turnaround time reports provide the information you need to investigate specific tests that didn’t meet TAT targets. With details about these tests per system, patient, location, date, and more, you can determine and mitigate the issues that are affecting time to result.

Technical specifications

The open process management and analytics tool, Atellica Process Manager, enables laboratories to combine the majority of instrument administration and testing responsibilities into a single command center with centralized supervision for streamlined control — with less running around.

Most Siemens Healthineers devices and systems from other manufacturers are supported by the tool.

Performance metrics

  • Testing volume: Up to 1,000,000 tests/day with 1-year data retention, or up to 100,000 tests/day with 2-year data retention
  • Peak of 150,000 tests/hour

Automation and IT requirements

  • Labs with automation: Atellica® Connectivity Manager and Aptio® Automation with Data Management System (DMS), FlexLab® with DMS, or Aptio Automation with Atellica® Data Manager
  • Labs without automation: Atellica Connectivity Manager and Atellica Data Manager

Remote control

  • Remote control from the Atellica Process Manager client to any connected device that supports VNC (remote-control protocol) or Remote Desktop (part of Microsoft Windows OS)

Language support

  • User interface: Brazilian Portuguese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, and Spanish
