Laboratory Information Systems (LIS) are also known as Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS). Laboratory Information Systems are a software-based laboratory that is utilized for information management. Laboratory Information Systems has features that are similar to a modern laboratory. Some of the key features of Laboratory Information Systems are data tracking, data mining, data analysis and data exchange interfaces. Laboratory Information Systems are an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) tool that manages multiple tasks in laboratory informatics.
Drivers and Restraints
The demand for global laboratory information systems is largely driven by the increasing number of end-user laboratories in developed as well as developing countries. Also, there is a surge in the number of training institutes for Healthcare Intranet Technologies with the rapidly spreading awareness of the offerings and advantages of these information systems.
The global market growth expected to be boosted by the need for advanced monitoring systems that aid in accurate clinical decisions. However, the global market growth is likely to witness lower adoption rates due to high costs for the maintenance of systems and inadequate IT infrastructure.
