INDIANAPOLIS and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- hc1.com®, the leader in healthcare relationship management, and Ovation.io, Inc. (Ovation), makers of the fastest-growing clinical laboratory information (LIMS) and commercialization platform, today announced a platform integration that gives small, specialized testing laboratories access to powerful LIMS, client relationship and analytics solutions.

The integrated solutions deliver robust features on par with more expensive enterprise solutions that are out of reach for many startups and small labs.

“There is a tremendous amount of innovation happening at startups and small labs, especially in the genetic and molecular testing areas. This integration levels the playing field by providing affordable access to world-class LIMS and analytics solutions needed to grow their businesses and compete with larger labs,” said Brad Bostic, chairman and CEO of hc1.com.

Ovation’s cloud-based LIMS is an out-of-the box solution for clinical diagnostics labs that scales to accommodate the needs of labs for sample tracking, billing and reimbursement, reporting, document management, training management, client management, laboratory consulting services and business analytics. hc1.com's live analytics enables lab managers to immediately visualize healthcare data in real-time dashboards for an instant view of performance. With this integration, joint customers have access to a number of standardized reports that give insight on quality metrics, as well as financial and sales performance.

“As Ovation continues to reimagine what a LIMS should be, integrating with best-in-class partners is key to our commercialization ecosystem and to our mission of helping our customers change the role of the diagnostic lab in clinical care, research and development,” said Barry Wark, CEO of Ovation. “Small labs will be able to participate in research and real world evidence collaborations at earlier stages and share data and assets that are unique to emerging labs.”
