PraediGene

PraediGene is a laboratory workflow tool developed by Bitscopic and designed to allow users to electronically enter and track various medical lab tests. In addition to these core capabilities, PraediGene contains advanced computational biology features and interfaces with Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems. Once work items are entered, they are immediately available to all users for tracking, DNA analysis (when applicable), report generation, and generic workflow activities. PraediGene has the ability to associate and retrieve patient information directly from EHR systems.
