The future of LIS and LIMS
Choosing between LIS or LIMS? Or want the best of both?
This decision forces a choice between whether their laboratory applies a patient-centric model (LIS) to their test procedures, workflows, and processes, or a sample-centric model (LIMS).
Potentially, this choice compels labs to be locked into one or other approach, and therefore be excluded from the flexibility to explore new workloads with different test procedures. The dilemma of choosing between an LIS or a LIMS is no longer necessary.
Using a modern cloud architecture and advanced data model there is no reason a single solution cannot support both approaches — to be both patient- and sample-centric. This new possibility gives labs the flexibility to innovate and support new and different workloads as they evolve their research services and grow their businesses.
Shaping your laboratory
Our platform seamlessly integrates data and powers any laboratory to inform and improve the health of our global communities – whether from monitoring our environment, better medical care and disease surveillance, or through advances in science and research.
Modern architecture and data model
Lab managers now have a simpler, easier choice. One that allows them to innovate their services, support future growth, and ensure competitiveness.
The LIS versus LIMS debate has distracted the laboratory informatics sector for forty years, diluting the development resources of software vendors and increasing costs for customers. The Clinisys Platform is LIS and LIMS agnostic. We support both approaches. We offer you the benefits of both on a single platform. We operate in both the LIS and LIMS marketplaces.
The Clinisys Platform architecture and data model is built upon our unique expertise and understanding derived from supporting over 3,500 testing and research lab customers worldwide, working across multiple industry sectors and science disciplines, handling their workflows efficiently, meeting their diverse regulatory needs and integrating with thousands of instruments and related systems.
A better choice
Achieving compliance across different regulatory requirements
Each approach was consequently designed to satisfy different regulatory and compliance requirements, each requiring different types of
An LIS is typically limited to medical and healthcare regulations, whilst a LIMS is focused upon standards and regulations for quality, safety, and manufacture in different industries, including food & beverage, water quality, public health, and environmental.
Within each Clinisys Laboratory Solution, existing workflows are available which seamlessly meet the regulatory needs of the research or testing task in question, automatically gathering test data during the process for audit or compliance. As labs explore new areas and regulations extend their scope, these pre-configured workflows are readily available.
LIS and LIMS: removing the duplication and overlap
Similarly, there are now greater points of inter-connection between previously discrete industries and the science disciplines applied within their research and test
The demands placed on laboratories have also grown — and will do so more in future — the need for increased flexibility changes labs’ traditional industry-based preferences for either LIS or LIMS.
This complexity is compounded by regional variations in how the terminology is applied. In some countries around the world what is elsewhere called
Now, lab managers can use the best of breed laboratory capabilities that are needed to excel within each discipline or
Cost effective and agile
Clinisys develops these common laboratory processes once only, for use across all our customers worldwide. This approach ensures both efficiency and resilience. We then enable and deploy them as required by each customer through our platform, meaning new features and capabilities can be developed and deployed with greater agility.
Our sophisticated data model means we are not tied to either a patient or sample centric approach but can configure our processes to
