The laboratory information system (LIS) processes, stores, and manages patient medical laboratory test records. The LIS has evolved from a standalone solution for handling basic medical test data to a more robust system that can accommodate a variety of medical testing needs—including inpatient, outpatient, hematology, immunology, and even molecular genetics.

Limited staffing, cost increases, and even fee decreases create pressure on clinical laboratories to accomplish more with fewer resources. As a result, many laboratories are implementing automated solutions to enhance efficiencies.

A key element for creating an efficient laboratory is implementing a robust, flexible LIS. The LIS should enable laboratories to automate workflows and optimize their operations. However, challenges arise when the software is not flexible enough to adapt to a laboratory’s changing needs.
