Add value by providing knowledge services 

In a Clinical Chemistry report, “Laboratory Medicine: Challenges and Opportunities,” the authors argue that preparations for the future should enhance operations and reduce costs through a variety of traditional means.

However, they also strongly recommend that clinical laboratories create additional value by using information technology to provide knowledge services related to in vitro diagnostics.

Traditionally, laboratories focus on using information systems for core functions that enable them to produce test results, but they sometimes don’t pay enough attention to functions incorporated in the system that could further streamline work, improve financial returns, or inform them of important information.

As George Popp, Vice President of Information Systems at Lab Alliance of Central New York, notes, “The use of internal and external data to drive the changes necessary for success is critical to lab operations.”
