Do you need more information?

Your lab faces ever-increasing challenges in today’s competitive environment: higher workloads, stricter compliance measures, and the pressure to maintain quality and fast time to results while keeping costs down. It boils down to being expected to do more with less. Optimizing your IT integration is a critical need and bioMérieux is ready to help you do that with MYLA®, an innovative, integrated software solution designed especially for the microbiology lab.

How does MYLA® impact patient care? Take the example of hospital-acquired infections (HAI). HAI is a key pressure on health-care systems today, heavily impacting patient care and financial burden. In fact, a 2011 WHO report estimated HAI-associated costs at € 7 billion in Europe annually*. In the case of a potential outbreak, fast, informed decisions are critical. IT integration in the microbiology lab means technicians can deliver key information to clinicians faster. With complete and efficient information flow, hospitals and public health officials can initiate coordinated, effective responses that reduce patient morbidity and mortality and keep costs down. This is just one example among many.
