Deciding how to upgrade your legacy laboratory information system (LIS)?
Produced in Partnership with NovoPath
Anatomic pathology laboratory leaders are faced with hard decisions and conflicts over whether to keep their on-premises legacy laboratory information system (LIS), move to a hybrid model, or step up to a full SaaS (software as a service) LIS offering.
One compelling reason, among others, that labs do consider LIS alternatives is the difficulty of managing and keeping up with necessary software updates, security, sizing, and other information-technology needs of their current systems.
This white paper will assist pathology leaders in gaining a complete understanding of how a true SaaS LIS can overcome today’s pathology laboratory challenges while making key points to include in your organization’s internal cloud discussions. In addition, you’ll walk away with a better understanding of where your pathology laboratory stands with respect to its own cloud journey.
