LIS Implementation & Support

After choosing a particular brand of LIS software, it is important to implement the application strategically to benefit the most from its usage and maximize your return on investment. As with most technological implementations, you’ll first want to gather input from key stakeholders across your organization and examine workflows.

Then, LIS implementation experts (perhaps a collaborative team of in-house IT experts and LIS consultants that specialize in implementation) can create a plan that meets your laboratory’s goals while also fitting well into your project’s scope and budget. Your LIS implementation team can then optimize the application for its best usage and integrate it into your laboratory’s overall IT.

LIS training professionals can capture process documentation and create user-friendly training materials for educating your teams before the application Go-Live. These materials can also be used as workstation references, refresher training sessions, new employee onboarding, and more.

Training experts can craft user-specific training programs based on employee roles, or they can focus on a super‑use approach where select IT members in your organization are trained to teach others and answer employee questions.

LIS Implementation & Training FAQs

What is the purpose of laboratory information systems?

A laboratory information system (LIS) is a type of software that processes data after a medical test or procedure and then stores and manages that data. These systems are used across multiple medical specialties and testing types (both inpatient and outpatient). Typical procedures involve accepting an entry and then processing the specimen and entering the result. The LIS then stores the medical information about that patient, so that professionals can reference it in the future for comparative and other purposes.

What type of facilities can benefit from LIS software?

LIS technology is used in laboratories across multiple medical specialties. If medical professionals need to gather information about their patients through testing and other medical procedures, they will need to work with a quality laboratory to get results. In today’s times, laboratories rely upon technologies like LIS software to deliver accurate information.

How can an LIS consultant help my facility?

First, there is a wide range of LIS consultants. Some of them offer broader services while others have niche specialties, such as providing LIS training programs. Meanwhile, others might focus on LIS implementation and optimization. What’s most important is to be clear about what skill gaps exist in your laboratory and to find the right niche professionals to provide the LIS support you need.
