Clinical Laboratory Information System Implementation Brief: What You Need to Know About LIS Installations, Conversions, and Interface Projects
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.
Dark Daily is pleased to offer a new FREE White Paper providing practical insights and indispensable how-to’s regarding the enormous challenges associated with installing, converting, and interfacing a laboratory information system. This paper, written by an expert who has experienced (and overcome) these challenges, outlines for you a multi-step plan for bringing your laboratory team together toward the common goal of a modern LIS, thus expanding your lab’s capabilities, ensuring efficient operations, and yielding quality improvement.
This White Paper specifically addresses:
- Questions to ask when researching a laboratory information system
- Finding the right project manager who will mesh well with your laboratory and put into place the steps necessary to make your LIS installation or conversion a success
- Building a realistic budget for your project, including important considerations not directly related to your implementation
- Events important to include in your project plan that are often overlooked
- Reasons, many not obvious, for eliminating as many variables, non-essential tasks, and complicated workflows as possible—pre go-live
- And much more!
