Tips for Using Pipeline Pilot as an Integration Platform
One of the most common integration platforms used in laboratory informatics is Pipeline Pilot from BIOVIA. Whether part of a large enterprise software implementation or a project to pass data between two applications, integration projects always present challenges. In the laboratory environment, achieving integration goes beyond merely exchanging data between applications. Laboratory equipment/automation, specialized data sets, and validation complicate an already difficult task and create unique challenges. In addition to the goals of streamlining business operations, eliminating data silos and minimizing redundant data entry, integration also has to be done in such a way that supports regulatory compliance and promotes data integrity.
