What Is an LIS?
A Laboratory Information System (LIS) is a software system that records, manages and stores data for clinical laboratories. In today’s healthcare world, almost all laboratories require a dedicated LIS system to manage the complexities of lab testing.
These types of information systems designed for laboratories play a key role in meeting quality control standards, improving workflow, implementing automation and streamlining overall lab production.
The electronic data capture process of an LIS or LIMS can reduce time spent and cut out errors associated with the transcribing process. Don’t think for a second that it only improves the ‘transcribing process’; it’s evident that an LIS can improve overall business production and workflow.
In reality, many laboratories still rely on manual processes such as spreadsheets to organize and store their data. Although applications like ‘Excel’ can work for smaller labs, this type of manual method isn’t customizable, scalable and increases the chances of human errors.
All inbound laboratories must be reconciled with a matching specimen. Once the process has been completed, the orders are registered. The accessioning can occur by either manual entry or by finding the orders placed electronically; of course, the electronic way is much more efficient and less of a risk for error. Following this, a “case” number is generated, which follows the case through diagnosis on to the final report. At this time, labels will be generated as necessary.
The beauty of the Nexix LIS is that it has the ability to customize reports to tailor for you and your brand. Whether you want a system that runs in the cloud or on-premise, you don’t need to worry because our system can do both. At the end of the day, if you’re looking to improve lab production and workflow management for any type of laboratory, then our LIS is the right system for you.
