AUSTIN, Texas (November 12, 2019) – A recent LIS market report shows that demand for a modern LIS is driven by a number of factors: acceleration of laboratory automation, the need for improved lab efficiency, advances in integrated functionality, importance of compliance with regulatory requirements, and the rising prevalence of chronic diseases. Indeed, because all laboratories are now routinely being asked to do more with less, these and numerous other urgent reasons are compelling independent and hospital laboratories to invest resources in a major laboratory information implementation or upgrade.

“Installing, converting, and interfacing a laboratory information system is an enormous project that is often fraught with challenges,” states Bryan Firestone, Founder of U.S. Healthtek, a laboratory industry-specific IT consulting company offering dependable and affordable solutions for medical lab/IT needs. “But I’ve seen it bring laboratory teams together toward the common goals of expanding the lab’s capabilities, ensuring efficient operations, and producing quality improvement. In fact, a modern LIS is key to quality operations.”

To inform laboratory professionals with valuable insights, and to outline a multi-step plan for bringing the lab team together toward the common goal of a modern LIS, The Dark Report is offering a recently published free White Paper, “Clinical Laboratory Information System Implementation Brief: What You Need to Know About LIS Installations, Conversions, and Interface Projects.” Published by Dark Daily, it is available free to laboratory professionals as a PDF download.

This free White Paper specifically addresses:

  • Questions to ask when researching a laboratory information system
  • Finding the right project manager who will mesh well with the laboratory and put into place the steps necessary to make the LIS installation or conversion a success
  • Building a realistic budget for the project, including important considerations not directly related to implementation
  • Events important to include in the project plan that are often overlooked
  • Reasons, some not obvious, for eliminating as many variables, non-essential tasks, and complicated workflows as possible—pre go-live

U.S. HealthTek got its start in 2003, and the company’s roots in the medical technology field run deep. The U.S. HealthTek team is comprised of medical technology experts who understand laboratories’ challenges first-hand. The company offers healthcare technology solutions that not only make work easier for their partners, but also improve the quality of the services they offer.

Clinical Laboratory Information System Implementation Brief: What You Need to Know About LIS Installations, Conversions, and Interface Projects” is part of the Dark Daily growing library of White Papers and other information resources tailored specifically for the needs of laboratory administrators, lab managers, pathologists, and lab industry consultants.
