Why is standardization crucial for labs?
Today’s labs face daunting challenges, ranging from regulatory compliance, and staffing shortages to increasing test volumes and effective integration of advanced technologies, all while delivering the highest quality test results – outcomes clinicians can rely on for accurate diagnoses and treatments. But labs are also part of a greater institution and must contribute to their system’s performance in a value-based healthcare environment.
Why it matters:
- Improve testing quality and accuracy
- Enhance patient safety
- Increase efficiency and cost savings
- Enable greater interoperability and data exchange
