A laboratory information system, or LIS, is a computer system that interfaces to the medical equipment used in a laboratory for testing. Also known as a laboratory information management system, or LIMS, an LIS also stores patient results and quality control information. This kind of lab software should also be able to interface to other healthcare software, including practice management systems, or PM, and electronic health records, or EHR (also known as electronic medical records, or EMR).
Laboratory software such as CGM LABDAQ is designed to meet the needs of a variety of laboratories including:
Laboratories face unique challenges that can be met more easily with a good laboratory information system.
For example, labs must be compliant with CLIA (the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) and state regulations. CMS (the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) regulates almost all laboratory testing performed on humans in the US through CLIA. The objective of the CLIA program is to ensure quality laboratory testing. A good lab management system assists laboratories with CLIA compliance and provides secure, reliable workflows to ensure quality, consistent testing.
To connect with some providers, a reference lab may additionally require a secure, web portal to receive orders and transmit results. Both of CGM's leading laboratory information systems offer an option designed with this purpose in mind. For CGM LABDAQ, we offer the CGM LABNEXUS Laboratory Outreach Solution, and for CGM SCHUYLAB, there is the CGM SCHUYNET Laboratory Outreach Solution.
Other unique challenges for laboratories include the need for secure integration with EMR, billing software, and reference labs. Lab software such as the CGM LABDAQ Laboratory Information System will help in all of these areas, enabling the secure transfer of health information, improving workflow efficiencies, and maximizing reimbursements. For reference laboratories that prefer an integrated billing solution, CGM offers the CGM SCHUYLAB Laboratory Information System.
For added convenience, CGM LABDAQ users can purchase consumables such as labels and other common items at the CGM Shop Lab online store.
