About Course

The Laboratory Information System (LIS) is a core element in our daily work as medical laboratory professional. We use it to review patient and sample data, record our test results, collaborate with other healthcare professionals, and much more. Having the ability to understand how the LIS works can help you troubleshoot more effectively when problems arise – especially useful for those nightmare ‘all-hands-on-deck’ shifts. Being able to swiftly navigate through the informatics domain will help you continue to produce accurate and timely results for patients.

Subject Matter Expert: David Fagan is a medical technologist currently working as clinical information and application specialist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. He has a Master’s Degree in Laboratory Science from Rutgers University.

Currently in the middle of a LIMs implementation project, this course has been fantastic. Though training was given at the beginning of the project, there were many aspects that were not covered. This course filled in many of the gaps, starting from the basics looking at hardware and software and takes you on a journey all the way through to go-live day. I wanted to better my understanding of HL7 messaging, which was also covered by this course.
