Our new Digital Diagnostics Operations Platform backed by Innovate UK

The Hub Digital Diagnostic Operations Platform (DDOP) was deliberately built to unlock dependency on hardware devices with expensive & locked-in proprietary software. This will enable you to further automate the testing process using an AWS cloud-based and proven end2end solution with a 24/7 dashboard we call Commander.

In 2020 and in the pre-vaccination period, The Hub (DDOP) won an Innovate UK award to help Labs both digitise Covid testing and issue secure certificates to patients. We were also contracted by the NHS to design and build the protoype for Covid Passporting as well as large scale PCR and LAMP testing (which we are currently still performing). In addition, we have launched an LFD (Antigen) testing ‘plug in’ to our platform and are already working on STI, Oncology and General Screening testing processes.

The key benefits of The Hub’s cloud DDOP solution, whether stepping up from a manual process or reducing a dependency on a device led LIMS system, are as follows:

  • a far more detailed 24/7 real-time management tool for the test lab
  • a more automated and therefore less manual process
  • a more secure, faster and reliable testing process with 24/7 reporting
  • a more flexible way to open-up different diagnostic tests affordably
  • a single view of both patient and lab processes off the same platform
  • a longer patient relationship resulting in sequencing and profiling.
  • an intuative LIMS inclusive of patient booking and & payment
  • ‘plug and play’ integration with any device or 3rd party labs

Given the immediacy of the ever-changing Covid PCR and LFT requirements as well as the need to open up new diagnostic opportunities such as the Community Hubs announced in the budget, please feel free to contact us at jo@thehub.co.uk and we will set up an immediate online demo to show the full capabilities of our platform and how it could change your business for the better now and in the future.

By connecting citizens, neighbourhoods and communities through a local public sector platform, they can be linked together within a regulated, ethical, protected and trusted environment. This creates the opportunity for each to participate in solving their problems and the challenges affecting them locally, with the public sector in the role of custodian of the marketplace.
