Laboratory Management Information Systems

Book Description

Technological advances have revolutionized the way we manage information in our daily workflow. The medical field has especially benefitted from these advancements, improving patient treatment, health data storage, and the management of laboratory samples and results. Laboratory Management Information Systems: Current Requirements and Future Perspectives responds to the issue of administering appropriate regulations in a medical laboratory environment in the era of telemedicine, electronic health records, and other e-health services. Exploring concepts such as the implementation of ISO 15189:2012 policies and the effects of e-health application, this book is an integral reference source for researchers, academicians, students of health care programs, health professionals, and laboratory personnel.
