LIS Usage & Satisfaction

January 2021 - Vol.10 No. 1 - Page #24

Adopting a robust, purpose-designed laboratory information system (LIS) heralds specific benefits for the laboratory in the form of expedited patient admissions, reduced sample identification errors and test translation errors, archivable electronic results storage, fewer billing errors, and improved staffing efficiency.

Whether your laboratory’s information system is standalone or part of a larger, facility-wide IS, many commonalities have grown from conveniences to necessities. Clearly, the ability to electronically track a patient’s treatment progress is of great benefit. Further, elements such as clinical decision support, lab order/ICD code comparisons, QA parameters, workflow management, and reporting/compliance mechanisms provide transparency into the entirety of lab operations.

As a robust LIS has become indispensable in most clinical laboratories, 87% indicate they are satisfied with their current system.

Cerner, Epic, Meditech, and Sunquest are the leading vendors in use.
