Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Information Software to manage patient pathology results, billing, scheduled appointments and generate pathology and laboratory medicine reports
The laboratory information software (LIS) is core module of the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, a lightweight software designed to have small memory footprint (RAM usage) and low CPU usage, overall a low usage of system resources as a result of simple design and architecture.
Real-time processing, flexible workflow and robust automation are the elements of the laboratory information software (LIS) to support broad range of use cases, business processes alignment and true flexible software implementation.
GCS ERP covers a wide range of applications and provide sufficient resources to automate any business process in the following domains:
The laboratory information software (LIS) comes with the built in Patient registration and scheduling:
Built in capabilities:
Secure, reliable and intuitive patient portal to enable patients to view and communicate their pathology reports and results.
The laboratory information software (LIS) has built in easy to use and intuitive calendar, appointment and SMS, Email and mobile notifications, to ensure interactive engagement among patients, health professionals and the medical clinics.
The laboratory information software (LIS) is compliant with the Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes (LOINC).
LOINC, the universal standard for identifying medical laboratory observations and related Electronic Health Records (EHR) documents and clinical mapping and improve clinical health information and data exchange.
Health Level Seven international (HL7) refers to a set of international standards for transfer of clinical and administrative data between software applications used by various healthcare providers.
GCS laboratory information software (LIS) implements the HL7 interface engine.
HL7 capable laboratory information software (LIS) and Health Solutions and software enable health institutions to communicate and share patient information reliably and securely over the internet network.
International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD) allows the systematic recording, analysis, interpretation and comparison of mortality and morbidity data collected in different countries or regions and at different times.
GCS laboratory information software (LIS) complies with the World Health Organisation (WHO) International Classification of Diseases (ICD) and Procedures and the International Health Regulations (IHR).
GCS adopts responsive web design to make the laboratory information software (LIS) pages to fit the screens of different devices automatically, displaying the content in a way that people feel comfortable, this capability reduces users’ operations like panning, zooming and scrolling when using the different modules and pages in the ERP to ensure usability and satisfaction all time.
GCS laboratory information software (LIS) is based on simple technology architecture to ensure high level of flexibility and scalability, the simple architecture contributes to more secure services, faster implementation and higher portability across different platforms.
The following diagram describes GCS digital service high level architecture and the standard cloud service deployment on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) automatically distributes the incoming traffic across multiple application servers and IP addresses in more availability zones, ELB monitors the health of its registered targets, and routes traffic only to the healthy targets and scales the load balancer capacity automatically in response to changes in incoming traffic.
GCS ELB distributes workloads across multiple compute resources to increases the availability and fault tolerance of the web services and cloud products.
GCS uses scalable computing capacity in the cloud to scale up and handle changes in requirements or spikes in popularity, reducing any down time due to heavy loads on the cloud services.
GCS deploys primary databases and synchronously replicates the data to different databases in different locations, when database failure detected, GCS services automatically failover with automatic database failover that completes as quickly as 60 seconds with zero data loss and no manual intervention.
GCS digital services provide Web APIs Application Programming Interface (API) endpoints to integrate with other digital services by publishing and consuming events on the API's endpoints.
Web APIs are services accessed from client devices (Desktop, Server, Mobile Phone, Laptop, etc.) using the secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTPs), GCS Web APIs are RESTful and implements the standard GET and POST. HTTP requests are used to access data or resources in the web application via URL-encoded parameters. Responses are generally formatted as either JSON or XML to transmit the data
GCS implements a secure unified communication system to deliver notification to the system users, all communication messages are captured by the system audit trail.
GCS implements NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF) to protect all cloud services regardless of the technology used to power these services.
Created and established by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the framework addresses the lack of standards when it comes to cybersecurity and provides a uniform set of rules, guidelines, and standards for organisations to use across industries.
NIST Cybersecurity Framework is widely considered to be the gold-standard for building a cybersecurity program, by acting as a top-level security management tool that helps assess cybersecurity risk across the organisation.
NIST cybersecurity framework is a powerful framework to organise and improve GCS cybersecurity program. Comprehensive guidelines and best practices to help our engineers to build and improve our cybersecurity state. The framework puts forth a set of recommendations and standards that enable us to be better prepared in identifying and detecting cyber-attacks, and also provides guidelines on how to respond, prevent, and recover from cyber incidents.
GCS implements the 5 Core Functions of NIST Cybersecurity Framework as per the following section.
Since 2006 and before the NIST time, GCS has developed the following to identify the digital assets to be protected:
GCS developed and implemented the following safeguards to ensure delivery of critical infrastructure services to our customers:
To identify the occurrence of any cybersecurity event on our digital services, GCS has developed and implemented the following activities:
GCS has developed and implemented the following to respond to any detected cybersecurity incident:
In the case of successful cybersecurity attack and upon the compromise of any digital services, GCS has developed and implemented appropriate activities to restore any capabilities or services that were impaired as per the following:
GCS encrypts and digitally signs server-side data stored at rest and extends to the automated backups, read replicas, and snapshots, the signing operations using asymmetric key pairs to validate digital signatures and securely generate hash-based message authentication codes (HMACs) that ensure message integrity and authenticity.
GCS cloud computing resources protected by security groups act as a firewall to control inbound and outbound traffic at the lowest computing level.
