Health Information Systems (HIS) have been quite beneficial to me. HIS makes medical information, research articles, and educational materials easily accessible, allowing me to keep current and informed. HIS facilitates data management in the laboratory, allowing us to efficiently record and track patient information, test results, and investigations. It improves collaboration among healthcare providers, increases diagnostic accuracy, and fosters effective communication. Overall, HIS has improved my student learning experience and streamlined laboratory processes, making work more efficient and effective.
“Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed.” – 1 Peter 4:12-13 ESV This verse reminds us that we will experience difficulties in life, but they should not surprise us. Instead, we should rejoice in our tribulations, knowing that they promote endurance and maturity in our faith. We should likewise delight in our hardships… Read More
Material management is critical in both clinical laboratories and homes to ensure resource efficiency, safety, sustainability, and cost-effectiveness. Material management is vital in clinical laboratories to assure the integrity of quality control samples, meet proficiency criteria, and ensure the systematic management of laboratory supplies. Material management is essential in households to assure the availability of raw materials and products, to save money, and to maintain quality through the materials acquired and used. Overall, material management aids in the maintenance of a consistent flow of materials for production, the management of costs and… Read More
Policies are the principles and rules that regulate the management, access, and protection of health information in a health information system, guaranteeing compliance with legal and ethical standards. Processes are the systematic procedures and actions involved in gathering, organizing, storing, and disseminating health information to ensure accuracy, accessibility, and timeliness. Workflows define the system’s job and information flow sequences, allowing for efficient coordination and collaboration among healthcare professionals and stakeholders. Procedures define how to complete specific activities inside processes, guaranteeing consistency, standardization, and quality in processing health information across the system.
Health Information System has made me learn, understand and gain knowledge in the technology side of the health system and most especially in the laboratory information system and how it works.
MT14-CC Laboratory Information Systems Laboratory Information Systems (LIS), also referred to as Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), is defined by Trust Radius as software programs designed to help laboratories manage their workflows and protocols while keeping track of their tools, samples, and test results. In other words, a laboratory information system (LIS) is a piece of software used in the healthcare industry that manages, saves, and keeps track of patient information related to lab tests and analysis (Orchard, n.d.). Clinical data from a patient’s visit to a healthcare provider is monitored, kept,… Read More
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philipians 4:6-7 New King James Version
I learned a lot in this subject, particularly regarding the significance of having a LIS (Laboratory Information System) and the crucial factors involved in selecting the most suitable LIS for a laboratory. These factors encompass the specific nature of the laboratory, the range of tests or services it provides, and additional requirements and expectations. Moreover, through insightful discussions, I also acquired valuable insights into laboratory management, with a specific focus on the domains of Quality Control and Material Management.
