What is a Laboratory Information System?

A laboratory information system (LIS) is a software-based solution that records, manages, and stores patient data for clinical laboratories, research laboratories, and reference laboratories. This data is then used for patient tracking, decision support, ordering tests, specimen tracking, quality assurance, reporting, billing, and ultimately workflow management.

Common LIS Functions

Doctors and lab technicians use laboratory information systems to manage a variety of medical tests, both inpatient and outpatient. Basic laboratory information systems normally include features that manage patient check in, entry of orders, specimen processing, patient data, and test results. An LIS tracks and stores clinical data regarding patients and keeps the information in the database for future reference and patient care.

Below are other common functions of a Laboratory Information System:

  • Patient Management and Data Tracking
  • Decision Support
  • Specimen Tracking
  • Standard Test Ordering
  • Quality Assurance
  • Analytics and Reporting
  • Workflow Management and Reporting
  • Billing and Collections
  • Third-party Software Integration
