Leading Laboratories

Leading Laboratories


Leading Laboratories is a collaboration between the American Society for Clinical Pathology and The Joint Commission.  It is a new program designed to recognize excellence in laboratories based on a number of stringent criteria.  Laboratories can apply for consideration through a special website,

The website needed to be built, tested and deployed in under two weeks to ensure it was ready for the program's announcement at the ASCP Annual Meeting.


  • Convert prototype into production website in 14 days.
  • Ensure the site could withstand a spike in traffic coinciding with its launch event.
  • Implement an online application form with appropriate safeguards in place.
  • Manage the review and approval process across two organizations.


  • Provision and configure cloud server.
  • Convert prototype into responsive website with appropriate breakpoints.
  • Design of secure application form, including email notification.
  • Load test website and adjust configuration as needed.
  • Add monitoring tools to monitor health of server and website.
  • Create and execute a cross-organization communication plan. 


The site was ready in ten days, allowing for a seamless launch during the ASCP Annual Meeting.  The launch traffic did not affect the sub-second response time of the site.  Laboratories from across the country are applying for consideration through the website.

We needed a very fast turnaround time with no margin for error.  Imaginary worked with all the stakeholders across both organizations to deliver ahead of schedule.  It was a flawless launch.
