In an increasingly competitive economic environment for healthcare services, clinical diagnostic laboratories are looking at tools that can improve their efficiency and increase their profits. Of primary interest are sophisticated laboratory information systems (LIS) that can interact with the facility or institution’s electronic medical record (EMR) system and/or electronic health record (EHR).
Although the LIS concept is not new, advances in technology have made them more sophisticated than ever, offering clinical and non-clinical applications, Web-based connectivity, customizable configurations and rule-writing, scalability, and modular units that can offer data handling for the most cutting-edge laboratory techniques and testing.
The Dark Report is happy to offer our readers a chance to download our recently published FREE White Paper “Transferring Laboratory Data Into The Electronic Medical Record: Technological Options For Data Migration In The Laboratory Information System” at absolutely no charge.
