LIaaS has a comprehensive, proven methodology to deliver successful managed services in the life science domain that combines all aspects of quality service delivery.
FREMONT, CA: Laboratory informatics is the specialized area of information technology to optimize laboratory operations. It is the fastest-growing application in lab related technology. With the data generation increasing exponentially in life sciences laboratories, laboratories are so tightly coupled to informatics systems and researchers so dependent on IT. IT professionals often struggle with developing and maintaining strategic roadmaps to be ready for future needs in this complex environment. To future-proof the lab, a third-party informatics vendor with expertise in laboratory informatics systems can be a valuable partner by providing Laboratory Informatics as a Service (LIaaS). Read on to know more.
When it comes to LIaaS, it is essential for having quality data. In all honesty, a lab that can’t guarantee the integrity of its data is worthless. Laboratory Informatics have no value if the resulting data can be questionable.
This is the reason why Laboratory Information Management Systems are so important to the industry. With a user-friendly and completely configurable LIaaS, the data quality will be greatly improved. Managing samples can be a big problem for many labs, especially when there are several storage facilities. The potential for an employee to quickly locate a necessary sample costs the organization money. Labs should have state of the art equipment, and a LIaaS will help with managing the samples. The ability to find the right sample rapidly is essential in this industry.
Several managed service providers are out there, but not all of them have the kind of comprehensive methodology and expertise necessary to effectively serve Life Science laboratories. Every MSP engagement should start with business process analysis that collaborates with all stakeholders to evaluate the current state, design future state work processes, and accurately captures prioritized requirements. It should also synchronize business goals with IT and business priorities, develop standardized processes, better communication, and productivity resulting in better end-user services.
