A Brief Overview of LabSTAR

Dr. Thomas Dalsgaard Nielsen practices medicine in Birmingham, Alabama, where he serves as a physician at American Family Care. Leveraging his expertise in cardiology, Dr. Thomas Dalsgaard Nielsen developed LabSTAR under his startup business, base2 Medical, LLC.

A nuclear laboratory statistics and reporting software, LabSTAR improves the quality of health care data recording because it was designed by a medical professional, rather than a computer programmer with little expertise in how clinicians carry out their responsibilities. The software removes extraneous notes that serve no purpose in delivering care, ensuring that only critical data is available for review. LabSTAR utilizes a simple point and click interface that gives users, such as medical professionals at St. Vincent’s Birmingham and Southview Cardiovascular Associates, the ability to obtain reports and export them in multiple formats instantly.

The software contains menu options for database, stress, study information, imaging, echocardiograms, perfusion, and function. It has been updated to meet the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s standards for the 10th revision of the international classification of diseases, commonly referred to as ICD-10.
