Australian Clinical Labs celebrates a go-live success
Cirdan’s key partner in Australia, Australian Clinical Labs, has improved the stability and functionality of its pathology workflows through the successful deployment of Cirdan’s Laboratory Information System (LIS), ULTRA version 4.6.
In an upgrade period of just under three hours, the Cirdan team was able to transfer over 29 years’ of Clinical Labs’ data, comprising more than 10 billion rows of migrated data, with no loss recorded. This makes it one of the most successful Cirdan ULTRA go-lives to date.
Australian Clinical Labs engaged Cirdan to upgrade its existing database from OpenText Dataserver to ULTRA’s latest database on Oracle 19.
Australian Clinical Labs is a leading provider of pathology services in Australia. Clinical Labs’ 80+ NATA-accredited laboratories perform over eight million episodes each year for a range of clients, including doctors, specialists, patients, hospitals, and corporate businesses.
Clinical Labs is one of the largest private hospital pathology businesses in Australia, servicing more than 90 private and public hospitals, and a trusted provider of choice to some of the country’s leading private hospital groups.
Clinical Labs was attracted to ULTRA 4.6 due to the change in database technology and new functionality, supporting a virtual environment and allowing for greater robustness in disaster recovery and failover. This would ensure the continuity and security of Clinical Lab’s ongoing operations.
Since the successful deployment of Cirdan’s ULTRA version 4.6, Clinical Labs has seen an improvement in stability, functionality, and supportability in moving to the new technology stack and database. This has enabled Clinical Labs to create a virtual laboratory environment, and will ensure that future upgrades of the LIS can be managed smoothly as data can easily be relocated to the new hardware through ULTRA.
