Medical University of South Carolina Partners with iLab Solutions to Streamline Core Facility Operations, Boost Efficiency and Save Money

Charleston, SC and Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 25, 2013

Two years after beginning their investigation of vendors of core facility management systems, MUSC’s review committee unanimously selected iLab Solutions’ web-based system to streamline its research resources.

"From the standpoint of a growing academic medical center managing a diverse group of shared resources, we selected iLab over competing software packages based on its flexible capabilities for use with a diverse group of cores in scheduling instrument use, tracking use, billing, generating reports and potential to save time and money,” stated Dr. Steven A. Rosenzweig, associate director of shared resources, Hollings Cancer Center and Infrastructure Committee chair, MUSC College of Medicine.

Heather Lorenz, iLab Solutions vice president of business development, celebrates the partnership. “We are delighted that MUSC, one of the nation’s leading medical research institutes, has selected iLab’s system to meet their shared facility business needs.”

iLab Solutions is the leader in providing software for core facility management, offering B2B solutions to research institutions worldwide. More than 75 leading research institutions in eight countries rely on iLab, including 25 of the top 50 NIH funded research institutions in the United States.

Three core facilities at MUSC’s Hollings Cancer Center, (the only National Cancer Institute designated center in the state), kicked off the project. Twelve more cores across MUSC will follow this initial wave and others are scheduled to come online in the future. iLab’s system will also integrate with MUSC’s identity management, billing, and other relevant applications.

Lorenz says, “Using a uniform request and billing management interface that integrates with other platforms will enhance the ability for MUSC researchers to collaborate across campus. Additionally, research administrators will have insight into core usage and increase recharge capture with charges and credits posting directly to the general ledger.”

Today, MUSC continues the tradition of excellence in education, research, and patient care. MUSC educates and trains more than 3,000 students and residents, and has nearly 13,000 employees, including approximately 1,500 faculty members.
