Short introduction of IMD

The Institute for Medical Diagnostics Berlin-Potsdam (IMD Berlin-Potsdam) was founded as a merger of four laboratory practices and their associated laboratory communities in 1994. Today, the scope of analytical services comprises more than 3.000 different parameters from the entire spectrum of laboratory medicine. Physicians, scientists and more than 350 medical and technical assistants as well as other employees belong to the team of IMD Berlin-Potsdam. IMD has earned an excellent reputation, especially in the areas of allergy diagnostics, drug efficacy and drug analysis.

The Challenge

A laboratory medical company combines all factors which require efficient information management: Many employees, comprehensive internal documentation and a restrictive environment. In addition, due to the ongoing growth of the company the need for a system-wide information management steadily increased. Of key importance was the facilitation of resource-conserving research in existing documentation and databases as well as in the personal emails of the respective users. Furthermore, the search in the in-house digital quality management manual  was of particular importance. Here, it is essential to have quick access to documented content in order to allow for its inclusion in the daily routine.

The Solution

Following initial discussions with management and IT, intergator presented its capabilities during an iterative test process where it was necessary to demonstrate promised functionalities and performance indicators. After successfully completing the test and obtaining corresponding feedback, the productive implementation of the intergator cross-file and system-wide search and Knowledge Management solution followed. Since then intergator has become an indispensable tool for the search of information, particularly for executive management. Research times have reduced significantly and the internal information management has been optimized on a sustainable basis.
