Laboratories Face Unprecedented Challenges
In an environment where there is increasing pressure to deliver higher quality of care, laboratory leaders seek to mitigate risks while accelerating turnaround times (TAT). Meanwhile, greater testing demands, fewer resources and unplanned downtime can lead to inconsistent TAT, slowing intervention and creating stress for patients.
Downtime is complex. It can be caused by any number of factors, from planned maintenance to unforeseen circumstances - any condition that interrupts the delivery of test results. Laboratories must account for them all, and that can be challenging.
