North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust chooses PathoSys®

North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust has chosen the pathology reporting software, PathoSys® to meet the Cancer Reform Strategy requirements for electronic data transfer to its Cancer Registry NYCRIS (Northern and Yorkshire Cancer Registry and Information Service).

PathoSys® will be interfaced to the North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS iSoft Trust i.Lab TP (Telepath) Laboratory System utilising the interface developed by iSoft for the St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust chooses PathoSys®

County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust has become the third CliniSys Winpath laboratory to choose the pathology reporting software, PathoSys®. The trust provides secondary care district general hospital services to a population of around 500,000 in County Durham and Darlington.

As well as being the third Winpath site to recognise the value of PathoSys® this also represents an expansion of the NEwPath PathoSys® system hosted at the Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

PathoSys® User Group

The fifth meeting of the PathoSys® user group will take place at the Royal Derby Hospital on May 10th 2010. The Royal Derby Hospital laboratory provides Histopathology reporting for both Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the Burton Hospitals NHS Trust.
The meeting will include an optional laboratory tour to see the lab and discuss how PathoSys® has been implemented. Minutes of the user group meeting will be available for attendees in the user group portal. The meeting qualifies for 6 IBMS (Institute of Biomedical Science) points.

The British Army’s Panther Command and Liaison Vehicle (CLV) has been added to the AES Machine Care Plus®, oil sampling and analysis service. Panther, a light-armoured 4 x 4 wheeled vehicle, entered service in June 2008. The fleet of approximately 400 vehicles is deployed world-wide.

AES Support Warthog User Trials

The AES Machine Care Plus® fluid sampling and analysis service is supporting Warthog User Trials currently being conducted at the British Army’s Armoured Trials and Development Unit (ATDU) in Dorset.

Warthog is an armoured, amphibious, all-terrain tracked vehicle with a Caterpillar C7 engine generating 350bhp at 2,400rpm and an Allison MD 3500 fully automatic transmission. It is also fitted with front and rear axles, an integrated transfer box and track system final drive units.

The British Army has procured more than 100 Warthog vehicles under Urgent Operation Requirement procedures.

Interfacing: Winpath Interface Developed

AES Medical are pleased to announce that the development of the interface between the pathology reporting system, PathoSys® and the CliniSys Winpath system is now complete. This will enable AES Medical to provide Winpath users with Cancer Dataset Reporting and Information Management that meets the standards set by the Royal College of Pathologists and NHS Cancer Standards.
Compatible from the latest version of Winpath 5 onwards the interface will be Beta tested at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Gateshead which purchased PathoSys® as part of the NEwPath (North East wide Pathology) network.

Following implementation at Gateshead the interface will be rolled out to the Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust which recently procured PathoSys®.

Endometrial Dataset

PathoSys® has been updated to provide the latest Royal College of Pathologists Endometrial Cancer dataset. The dataset was released for consultation in November and is due for release in 2010.
AES Medical users keen to take the latest version have requested to be updated prior to this to take advantage of the latest guidelines as soon as possible.

To this end, AES medical has implemented the draft, alongside feature requests from our users and will reflect any final changes upon publication in a future minor update.
