Paperless Laboratory – Digital Laboratory Management
Laboratories can shift from traditional methods of creating, transcribing and reporting data by using the latest technologies. A key point is the importance of not just the data but its context. To correctly integrate data, so that systems can be automated, requires users to understand how this data is created. They also need to know what this data means to an organisation, something that is often overlooked. Ultimately, this process helps an organisation turn the laboratory from a cost centre into a value centre.
Laboratory data is not simple. The goal is to make that data useful. We need to leverage the value of that data. The changes arising due to new capabilities for real time access to data, IoT-enabled devices, as well as better predictive technologies across an ever expanding and increasingly complex sets of data. Changes will require a shift in thinking and an IT-business realignment.
Manual processes to ensure Data Integrity place large paperwork overheads on analysts.
Working with hybrid systems forces laboratories to manage both formats, paper and electronic.
A LIS supporting paper-free processes, can facilitate lab automation. When a process is automated, validated, and transparent, it is not only more user-friendly but it also makes easier all audits.
A paperless functioning LIS can:
ensure the highest standard of Data Integrity
aid your compliance
support your organization on saving time and money
enhance the value of your data
Computing technologies have reached a point of maturity where they users can start to make use of the huge amounts of data that are being collected. Organizations that are most successful at turning data into actionable insight will have a distinct advantage over the coming years.
Value is in the analytics that are enabled through the use of these technologies.
An advanced LIS system like MediLab LIS, is the tool in your hand to transform your laboratory to a paperless one.
