If you are planning to purchase a new LIS, or make any other major purchase for your laboratory, you may need support from someone at your organization’s administrative level. It is important to actively work to build a rapport with your administrative team and to understand the mission and vision of your organization so that you can align departmental decisions with organizational goals. Having the trust and support of the right people can make the decision process easier.
While there is widespread dissatisfaction among EHR users, it is less common to hear the same animosity toward an LIS. LISs are more mature, and the laboratory has been working with them for decades now. However, this does not mean you have to be stuck with an old, frustrating system that no longer meets your needs. If you are wondering if your current LIS will meet your future needs, here are five signs that may signal the need to look into replacing your LIS.
