A laboratory information system is a complex information system designed for data and information management related to industrial and medical-related laboratories including clinical and analytical laboratories. Laboratory information system allows users to obtain, store, manage, retrieve and record laboratory data. Laboratory information system provides information that helps in the diagnosis, prevention, management and treatment of disease, as well as being an indicator for individual and population health. There is no standard laboratory information system designed due to the fact that client laboratories are highly diverse and have different requirements. Therefore, a laboratory information system is developed, customized and configured according to the needs of a laboratory. Globally, improvement in healthcare services is playing a major role in increasing the demand of laboratory information system. As a result, this market is expected to grow at a CAGR of about 7.7% during 2013 – 2019.
