Laboratory Information System Study Results


A recent study by XIFIN entitled “State of the Industry: Laboratory Information Systems” reports that 30% of respondents indicate that their laboratory information system (LIS) has gaps in its ability to meet their testing needs. Nearly one-quarter of respondents are unsatisfied (18%) or highly unsatisfied (5%) with their organization’s current LIS, and approximately one-third of respondents indicate dissatisfaction with their LIS’ ability to meet their testing needs.

Security awareness and obsolescence concerns were noted as well, with nearly one-quarter of respondents being unsure about the security of their organization’s LIS (22%) or reporting known security vulnerabilities (2%). Additionally, more than 40% of respondents indicate that their organization’s LIS is either not operating on the most recent software version (18%) or do not know if they are operating on the current version (24%).
