The solutions The MR-DLE (Drug Laboratory Effects) database is a collection of published drug effects on laboratory test. It can be used to avoid unnecessary laboratory tests or to find explanations for unexpected test results, to name just two examples. The MR-DLE contains data in English on the effects of drugs on laboratory results. Drugs can have various effects on laboratory results. Some are the desired effects, i.e. those typical for the mechanism of action of the drug. However, many drugs may increase or decrease also other laboratory values. This may lead to errors in clinical decision making. An automatic alerting system can be built based on the MR-DLE database. The knowledge base is maintained by Multirec Oy in cooperation with experts at Turku University Hospital. This database is unique in Europe and available on our Internet server under personal IDs. For software vendors and publishers the database is delivered also in XML-files.

Saralab Ltd. IT Consulting & Other Services; Application Software; Systems Software The company Saralab Oy is a privately owned software design company specialized in the design, development, and testing of customer-specific information systems and embedded software. The company is based in Paimio, Finland, conveniently between the economic regions of Turku and Salo. The company has been in operation since September 2002.

The solutions Saralab Oy can provide flexible software development services to public and private organizations. We have accumulated a broad range of skills and experience on a wide variety of technologies during the company's operation as well as in their earlier occupations, and we are quick and keen to learn the tricks of new application areas. We are comfortable working on almost any kind of platform, ranging from the bare hardware of the tiniest embedded microcontrollers to client/server information systems running on Windows and Linux operating systems. Here are some examples of projects that we have worked with. 路

Data communications and protocol integration is a central area of our expertise. For example, we have worked with Ascom Miratel, the leading Finnish manufacturer of nurse call systems, to develop protocol software to integrate their nurse call system to major patient information systems used in hospitals and healthcare centers. We have also developed protocol software to integrate various external alarm and communications systems to the nurse call system. Protocol software developed by Saralab Oy is in 24x7 operation around the Finnish healthcare sector, providing reliable and trouble-free delivery of patient management information. Our data communications expertise has found good use outside of the healthcare sector too. Embedded software developed by Saralab Oy is a critical piece of the two largest conference & voting systems in Finland: the Plenary Hall information system of the Parliament of Finland, and the City Council of Helsinki, the capital of Finland. Our software manages the microphones and voting buttons of each member in real time using specifically tuned IP protocol communications. Saralab Oy has also developed the embedded software driving some of the most advanced fitness equipment (top of the line Tunturi bike ergometers and crosstrainers) currently on the consumer market. In addition we have developed customer-specific PC software to control these fitness equipment for special purposes and applications.

In short, Saralab Oy knows how to make things communicate. Our business starts where most software developers take a step backwards. We take craftsman's pride in doing our job properly the first time around, so that our customers can simply enjoy the trouble-free service of the custom crafted software.

Currently we architect, develop, integrate, maintain, and support web-based solutions for health care with emphasis on mobility. We do both white label for vendors, and our own brand.

The solutions Trivore Corporation’s products are usually mostly hidden below the surface. Only on the most modern webbased applications a mobile app or website is visible. The real complexity is not shown. On systems integration solutions out products are usually completely hidden. We are agnostic to the tools, languages, and platforms. We let the business and budget to decide. On mobile, the platform decides. We do prefer virtualization, distribution, open source, open protocols, standards, and best practises. Most of our products are custom solutions, and as such we do not currently have visible globally known brand.
