CORPORATE DESCRIPTION:

Orchard Software installed its first Laboratory Information System in Indianapolis, Indiana, in 1993. Since that first installation, more than 1,300 laboratories across the country have turned to Orchard Software—including all types and sizes of multi-site and multi-specialty clinics and physician office laboratories, hospitals, regional reference labs, fertility clinics, veterinary labs, university student health services, and public health organizations.

Award-winning Orchard Products Year after year, as researched by KLAS, Orchard Software consistently posts some of the highest scores of any of the lab system vendors. In addition, Frost & Sullivan presented Orchard Software its Customer Value Enhancement Award in recognition of Orchard’s initiatives that have led to the highest customer satisfaction rates in the LIS industry. From the seeds sown in our first installation in 1993, Orchard Software continues to grow and develop software that makes life easier in the lab. Simply said, we’re the best, and that’s why laboratories from the boroughs of New York to the islands of Hawaii are harvesting the power of Orchard.

Included download capability Orchard® Trellis™ is downloaded and remotely installed with the assistance of Orchard’s technical support.

 

Operating system capability It is recommended that Orchard® Trellis™ Manager operate on Windows 2008 R2 SP1, 64-bit or Later. Orchard Trellis Workstation should operate on Windows 7 Pro SP1, 64-bit or later.

 

Administration features Orchard Trellis functionality includes the ability to configure order entry rules, such as test routing or alerts for duplicate tests, as well as result evaluation rules to hold results that do not meet your pre-specified criteria. And QC rules may be established that will not allow results to be released without acceptable QC results.

 

User features After test orders are placed in the EHR or directly into Trellis, pending orders appear in the Pending Review view of the software and can be selected to generate bar code labels as needed. As results come from the analyzer, the microscope icon appears, notifying you that results are available and ready for review. Reviewing results is as easy as selecting a patient and clicking on the results icon. Once you have reviewed the results, simply click “Release” to transmit them into the EHR. Orchard Trellis provides a Released Orders view, enabling you to review a previously released order with results. Similar to the Pending Review view, you can review a patient’s results by selecting the patient and either double-clicking on the patient’s name or clicking the “Results” button.

QC features QC for POCT has historically been paper-based, sporadically documented, and is often frustrating. Instead, Trellis allows you to easily ensure compliance to all POCT QC requirements. QC can be ordered in Trellis by the user or configured to auto-order at a desired frequency. You can establish rules that will not allow results to be released without acceptable QC results. Orchard Trellis, when used in conjunction with Orchard® Harvest™ LIS, complements Harvest LIS functionality to make patient results from POC analyzers easily accessible for analytics or inspection purposes and simplifies POC QC management. The QC features of Harvest LIS and the integration with Trellis enables you to easily manage QC at all of your POC testing sites.

 

Instrument Management features Installation involves connecting Trellis to the POC device via a supplied serial port connector. Orchard® Trellis™ is designed for easy use, with an intuitive user interface, limited screens, and straightforward, easy-to-grasp training.

 

Inventory Control features When used in conjunction with the optional Orchard® Harvest™ LIS, instrument supply inventory may be tracked using the supply management feature.

 

Reporting features Reviewing results is as easy as selecting a patient and clicking on the results icon. Once you have reviewed the results, simply click “Release” to transmit them into the EHR. Orchard® Trellis™ provides a Released Orders view, enabling you to review a previously released order with results. Similar to the Pending Review view, you can review a patient’s results by selecting the patient and either double-clicking on the patient’s name or clicking the “Results” button.
