Use Case

Laboratory Catalog

The challenge...

Maintaining multiple different laboratory dictionaries across different systems makes for a lack of oversight and governance of your data. It’s difficult to identify inconsistencies, content issues and measure the clinical relevance of expensive lab tests.


Semedy’s platform uses state-of-the-art models to represent all your various laboratory dictionaries within a single, centralized repository. 

"The importance of a cohesive, transparent laboratory catalog system cannot be overstated."

- Example Quote, 2020

The solution...

Semedy’s platform is specialized to support the most efficient dictionary management. It features preconfigured and flexible models, extract/transform/load (ETL) pipelines, extensible metadata schemas, convenient authoring templates, and configurable views. Content updates can be achieved using the platform as the “source of truth”, or by using scheduled source content exports.

Strengthen the quality of reporting and interoperability



Implementation starts with retrieving your organization’s source content and mapping these to preconfigured models within our platform. Models can be shaped to meet the needs of your organization. 


Source content is loaded and periodically refreshed using our extract/transform/load (ETL) framework. 


Implement content updates using Semedy’s platform as a “source of truth”, or by using scheduled source content exports. Alternatively, lab content can be managed within the system with periodic updates from your source systems.


Semedy becomes the central repository for your lab content activities. Enjoy a new level of control over your laboratory dictionaries.
