OTIS-Laboratory 8 by Nouvation Enhances Process Improvement and Compliance in the Lab

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. and GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.—April 28, 2014—Nouvation recently released a major upgrade of its OTIS®-Laboratory software system to help laboratories further drive process improvement, and comply effectively and efficiently with CAP and Joint Commission accreditation requirements.

Laboratories use OTIS, an “occurrence tracking information system,” to track and trend deviations or nonconforming events (NCEs), errors and accidents. The new version, OTIS 8, creates a 100% paperless laboratory CAPA (corrective action/preventive action) solution via a built-in virtual scanner. Users can scan Word and PDF documents in their entirety or select pages, with or without a scanner, and incorporate these documents into the investigation record.

Customers like St. Mary’s Hospital & Regional Medical Center, a 348-bed acute-care facility in Grand Junction, Colo., use OTIS-Laboratory to promote quality on the departmental level and enhance regulatory compliance. The hospital also uses OTIS®-Blood Bank 8, a sibling paperless system that Nouvation introduced at AABB 2013.

Headquartered in Fountain Valley, Calif., Nouvation developed OTIS in collaboration with a $1-billion nonprofit regional healthcare delivery network in Newport Beach, Calif., that has successfully used both products for years.
