Laboratory information system (LIS) is a system designed to store, retrieve, modify, and record data and information in laboratories. It is used laboratories to track and manage audit trails of health services, integrate instruments & applications, and handle demographic information for associated clients. In addition, it is also used in medical related laboratories for processing and keeping records of data related to individual patients for proper diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases.
A laboratory information system is a complex information system designed for data and information management related to industrial and medical-related laboratories including clinical and analytical laboratories. Laboratory information system allows users to obtain, store, manage, retrieve and record laboratory data. Laboratory information system provides information that helps in the diagnosis, prevention, management and treatment of disease, as well as being an indicator for individual and population health. There is no standard laboratory information system designed due to the fact that client laboratories are highly diverse and have different requirements. Therefore, a laboratory information system is developed, customized and configured according to the needs of a laboratory.
Physicians and lab technicians use laboratory information systems to coordinate varieties of inpatient and outpatient medical testing, including hematology, chemistry, immunology and microbiology. Basic laboratory information systems commonly have features that manage patient check in, order entry, specimen processing, result entry and patient demographics. An LIS tracks and stores clinical details about a patient during a lab visit and keeps the information stored in its database for future reference.
Prevalence of rising chronic disease and increasing the efficiency of work flow by using laboratory information system are the key factors driving growth of the global laboratory information system.
Increasing use of encryption has created new challenges for enterprise security managers. Ever more-sophisticated encryption such as Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) protects data and may even boost your Google ranking – but it also provides a haven for malicious code that may use encryption to bypass enterprise security controls.
Why nation-state attacks are everyone’s problem
