Another busy time for the lab is after pm when private practice physician offices are closing. Couriers will pick up specimens that have been drawn throughout the day and deliver them to the lab. Also, couriers will stop at outpatient drawing centers and pick up specimens. These specimens will be processed in the evening and overnight to ensure results will be available the following day.
Laboratory informatics[ edit ] The large amount of information processed in laboratories is managed by a system of software programs, computers, and terminology standards that exchange data about patients, test requests, and test results known as a Laboratory information system or LIS.
These systems enable hospitals and labs to order the correct test requests for each patient, keep track of individual patient and specimen histories, and help guarantee a better quality of results.
Results are made available to care providers electronically or by printed hard copies for patient charts. Result analysis, validation and interpretation[ edit ] According to various regulations, such as the international ISO norm, all pathological laboratory results must be verified by a competent professional. In some countries, staffs composed of clinical scientists do the majority of this work inside the laboratory with certain abnormal results referred to the relevant pathologist.
Clinical scientists have the responsibility for limited interpretation of testing results in their discipline in many countries.
Interpretation of results can be assisted by some software in order to validate normal or non-modified results. In other testing areas, only professional medical staff pathologist or clinical biologist is involved with interpretation and consulting.
Medical staff are sometimes also required in order to explain pathology results to physicians. For a simple result given by phone or to explain a technical problem, often a medical technologist or medical lab scientist can provide additional information.
Medical Laboratory Departments in some countries are exclusively directed by a specialized pathologist. In others, a consultant, medical or non-medical, may be the head the department. In Europe and some other countries, Clinical Scientists with a Masters level education may be qualified to head the department.
Others may have a PhD and can have an exit qualification equivalent to medical staff e.
In France, only medical staff Pharm. Medical laboratory accreditation[ edit ] Credibility of medical laboratories is paramount to the health and safety of the patients relying on the testing services provided by these labs.
Credentialing agencies vary by country. The international standard in use today for the accreditation of medical laboratories is ISO - Medical laboratories - Requirements for quality and competence. In , modification of legislation established ISO accreditation as an obligation for all clinical laboratories. In Canada, laboratory accreditation is not mandatory, but is becoming more and more popular.
Accreditation Canada AC is the national reference. Industry[ edit ] The laboratory industry is a part of the broader healthcare and health technology industry.
Companies exist at various levels, including clinical laboratory services , suppliers of instrumentation equipment and consumable materials, and suppliers and developers of diagnostic tests themselves often by biotechnology companies. Clinical laboratories are supplied by other multinational companies which focus on materials and equipment, which can be used for both scientific research and medical testing. Third edition.
