East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust (EKHUFT) pathology laboratory has gone live with the PathoSys® Bowel Screening module.
This follows inital live trials and refinement at Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust which is live with the PathoSys® Bowel Screening module linked to the Clinisys Labcentre system.

The EKHUFT serves a population of over 700,000 across three acute district general hospital sites, Margate, Canterbury and Ashford. Cellular pathology (Histopathology & Cytopathology) is based at William Harvey Hospital, Ashford.

AES Medical is continuing to work with both trusts to further refine and improve the PathoSys® Bowel Screening module which is a combination of the Royal College of Pathologists dataset and NHS Screening programme pathology proforma.

This combination allows the pathology reporting system PathoSys® to automatically populate and store the proforma saving the pathologist time and providing an electronic patient record (EPR).
The PathoSys® system at EKHUFT is interfaced to the iSoft iLab (formerly Apex) system. The interface provides PathoSys® with electronic demographics and iLab with the final authorised report.
