February 7, 2012

Clearwater, FL –SCC Soft Computer’s SoftBank®, a blood bank and transfusion service management information system, has been recognized as the category leader in blood bank solutions in the recently released 2011 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Services report.

“SCC Soft Computer is honored to be ranked the Number 1 Laboratory Blood Bank application for the third consecutive year in the 2011 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Services report,” said Gilbert Hakim, SCC’s founder and CEO. SoftBank®, SCC’s blood bank and transfusion service management system, has been recognized as the category leader in blood bank information management system solutions in 2009, 2010, and 2011.

SCC is also ranked the Number 1 Laboratory application for Small (1-200 beds) Hospitals in the 2011 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Services report. SoftLab®, SCC's flagship laboratory information system, has been recognized as the category leader in laboratory information management system solutions for community hospitals.

“SCC is one of the few LIS vendors who can say our systems work as well in a 150-bed community hospital as they do in a high-volume hospital system. Our robust, integrated information systems dramatically increase productivity in the laboratory enabling hospitals of all sizes to compete with national labs,” said Mr. Hakim.

“Laboratories need to defend their turf and pick the right laboratory information system so they can increase productivity as they’re faced with a shrinking workforce. This has led us to dictate new generational technologies and processes to help hospitals not only face this kind of hostile environment, but thrive in it. Our integrated products encompass a wide range of elements from physician portals to courier tracking to blood services—including clinical pathology, anatomic pathology, and genetic information systems. And having that single, cohesive application with a single patient database helps hospitals compete with national labs with ease by dramatically increasing productivity in the laboratory.”
