For medical testing laboratories, their Laboratory Information System (LIS) is the backbone of managing operations. This software processes, stores and manages data through all stages from initiating a requested test – coming from either an interface or a requisition – via accessioning, to exporting and storing test results. The final output of the test may be transmitted in several ways including fax, provider (or patient) portals with PDFs, or as emails. Consequently, having knowledge of each step along the way is critical to properly administering an LIS.
Clients of C4 may be a new laboratory or an existing one onboarding a replacement LIS who need experienced help to manage the process effectively. C4 provides LIS Administration Services to meet this need. Our staff includes personnel who previously worked in laboratories using an LIS making nomenclature and workflows familiar to our team.
