AUTO IMAGE UPLOADER MODULE
Eliminate errors caused by manual data entry.
Greatly reduce scanning time and improve efficiency.
Automatically attach images and documents to the corresponding case.
By using the FileUploader feature, WebPathLab has the ability to attach images and documents to any case. The user can select whether the uploaded information will be on the pathology report – such as photomicrographs and results from a reference lab – or saved in the database as a reference document – such as hospital face sheets and paper requisitions. This process can be manual or optimized by using the Auto Image Uploader (AIU).
How it Works
Once the case is accessioned, you can print barcode labels for the container, slides, and paper documents through the WebPathLab system. Below are three different examples of how your facility could take advantage of this time saving module.
Our barcode labels can be placed on any document of your choice, such as a paper requisition. The value of the barcode corresponds to the accession number of the case. You can place all the documents into the scanner at once, and it will save each document using the barcode value. Once saved, these images are saved in a special folder accessible by the AIU. Every 5 minutes, the AIU scans the folder and uploads all the files to the server, then automatically attaches each image to its corresponding case.
After the pathologist scans the slide label with the 2D barcode and takes a picture with the microscope camera, the imaging device saves that image with the barcode value in a folder accessible by the AIU. Just as with the paper documents, the AIU scans the folder, uploads all the images to the server, and attaches them to each corresponding case.
Once the grosser scans the label on the paperwork and snaps a picture of the specimen, the image will be uploaded to the server and attached to the case just like with the Paper Documents and Pictomicrographs. The user can then decide whether to include it in the pathology report or not.
