Company Background
=========================================================================

Company was founded to satisfy a growing need for an easy to learn, cloud-based Anatomic and Molecular pathology lab information system with only the relevant functionality. Our affordable system, SpeedsPath LIS, is ideal for small to medium-sized independent pathology labs, reference labs, and physician’s office pathologist groups and yet scales up to large hospital-based AP labs. You only need your existing hardware and an internet connection to get started without any huge upfront costs. Since our inception, tens of thousands of lab reports have been successfully signed out. With hundreds of diverse and satisfied users, we are very customer-driven for enhancing our system to enable the labs to succeed in their own workflow of order requisition, specimen tracking, results reporting, report distribution, billing, lab operations, and meeting regulatory requirements.
