19% Unhappy With LIS
This item from Healthcare IT News caught my eye today-19% of hospitals are unhappy with their current laboratory information system and plan to replace them, citing mostly the need for EHR integration and improved efficiency. The report, by healthcare technology research and advisory group CapSite, polled 290 hospitals of varying sizes across the U.S.
The need for EHR integration capabilities will only continue to grow, and lab managers are increasingly aware of the need for the LIS to make workflow smoother-not cause additional headaches.
What about you? Are you happy with your LIS? What improvements would you like to see?
