BJC HealthCare is making a significant investment to standardize laboratory testing capabilities across the hospital system with the addition of new, state-of-the-art laboratory technology from Roche.
The move to standardize will help BJC HealthCare to further improve patient care, enhance the quality and reliability of instrumentation and assays, cross-train lab personnel and allow for more predictable outcomes.
BJC currently uses a variety of different analyzers at each of its hospitals. The decision to upgrade to scalable, modular systems and easy-to-use reagents from Roche will help to optimize staff resources, allow for easy expansion or reconfiguration, improve inventory control, and most importantly, enable consistent and accurate lab results and faster turnaround times.
With the acquisition of the new technology, Roche believes that BJC is well-positioned to meet the diagnostic testing needs of the patients it serves both today and in the future.
