All NGS clinical diagnostic laboratories want to run more efficiently—it’s a necessity if they want to remain competitive. They need to streamline laboratory workflows, save on labor costs, and scale their operations to meet demand, such as with the current calls for additional COVID-19 testing capacity. But it goes further than that. To keep their highly skilled employees engaged and reduce human error, they need to minimize both unnecessary duplicated effort and simple repetitive tasks.
System integrations can help labs address all of these issues. By bridging the gap between two or more self-sufficient, self-contained systems, they enable the reliable and efficient exchange of information. This helps labs improve their performance and productivity, and scale beyond what would be possible using manual processes.
This document is based on a presentation delivered by chemist and automation consultant Joe Liscouski at the 2nd Annual Lab Asset & Facility Management in Pharma 2019 conference held in San Diego, CA, on October 22nd, 2019. It is not a verbatim transcript, but an expansion of the material presented. The presentation addressed the importance of effective technology management and planning within scientific work. With improved technology management and planning, "[t]hat work should yield better organized systems, reduced costs, better workflows, and improved ROI. How do you go about it? That is what we’ll start to address in this material."
This is a collection of free online introductory laboratory informatics courses developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL). The first two courses follow the journey of a specimen through the laboratory and explores the generation and transmission of data and results within and outside of the laboratory. A third course on laboratory informatics systems is in development. Participants can earn Professional Acknowledgment for Continuing Education® (P.A.C.E.®) credits upon completion.
This recorded Lab Informatics Tutorial series is designed as a management level view of laboratory systems and is appropriate for anyone planning, reviewing, or approving the acquisition of laboratory informatics. A background in science is not necessary to follow the presented material. Its purpose is to provide you with an understanding of how these technologies (Laboratory Information Management Systems, Electronic Laboratory Notebooks, Scientific Data Management Systems, Laboratory Execution Systems, Instrument Data Systems, and supporting technologies ) can be used to support/improve your labs operations, and the considerations that need to be taken into account before they are purchased.
Laboratories play an increasingly important role in providing timely and efficient care to patients. Patients and physicians rely heavily on results produced by diagnostic and images labs to proceed with the treatment process.
