This software is the newest addition to the BIOMÉRIEUX VISION SUITE – the company’s portfolio of Data and IT Solutions supporting increased efficiency and productivity in laboratories worldwide
bioMérieux, a world leader in the field of in vitro diagnostics, launches BIOFIRE® FIREWORKS™, an innovative and integrated software solution for BIOFIRE® Systems optimizing laboratory services and supporting data-driven decisions. This software is the newest addition to the BIOMÉRIEUX VISION SUITE – the company’s portfolio of Data and IT Solutions supporting increased efficiency and productivity in laboratories worldwide.
Tracking test results, surveillance data, instrument performance and productivity, is not an easy task especially for laboratories with busy staff and ever-increasing workloads. Decentralized data management poses a further challenge as this approach lacks the comprehensive visibility that is vital for streamlining laboratory operations and workflow.
Robust, centralized data management is the key to unlocking the full capabilities of modern laboratories. By consolidating all BIOFIRE® FILMARRAY® systems, used by laboratories, into one centralized location, BIOFIRE® FIREWORKS™ enables real time connectivity of not only central labs but off-site laboratories as well. By offering complete oversight into fleet performance of BIOFIRE® Systems and enabling access to data from anywhere at any time, laboratories can optimize their workflows and further gain autonomy and command over their operations.
BIOFIRE® FIREWORKS™, with its user-friendly interface, customizable filters, and seamless integration, can be the centralized data management tool laboratories have been seeking.
Mark Miller, Executive Vice President, Chief Medical Officer, noted: “With 70% of medical decisions relying on laboratory test results, this type of data has become the lifeblood of healthcare. Now, BIOFIRE® FIREWORKS™ allows labs to harness the power of data, unlocking insights that were previously hidden. With every sample analyzed and every result delivered, bioMérieux empowers labs to save lives and improve patient outcomes.”
BIOFIRE® FIREWORKS™ was designed, developed, and implemented to keep patient and customer data safe, adhering to industry standards and regulations. Customers have complete control over their data, allowing them to manage their information as they see fit.
BIOFIRE® FIREWORKS™ is already in use at several pilot sites across the world. The initial launch is scheduled in April 2023 in selected countries (Austria, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Spain, South Korea, and United States of America) and will roll out to other countries progressively.
A next step in the development of the BIOFIRE® FIREWORKS™ will be the full integration of BIOFIRE® Syndromic Trends – a global disease surveillance network
created by bioMérieux for BIOFIRE® Panel users. The synergistic union of these two solutions will further strengthen BIOFIRE® FIREWORKS™ as a powerful and comprehensive tool for laboratories across the world.
