A laboratory information system refers to an information management system which is basically based on software along with additional properties and features which support the operations of a modern laboratory. Laboratory information system furnishes various salient features such as workflow, flexible architecture and data tracking support as well as data exchange interfaces. Laboratory information system also helps in providing dynamic architecture as the requirements of the laboratory are increasingly evolving and various laboratories often possess several needs. Laboratory information system is basically a healthcare technology tool most oftenly used in recording, capturing and managing patent captured data as well as gathered during medical processes and tests.
Surge in economic growth which has been witness in most of the developing economives around the world as well as raise in the number of healthcare IT companies are some of the major factors fueling the on the whole growth of the global laboratory information system market. Uptrend in per capita expenditure particularly in healthcare in both developed and developing countries is projected to lead a surge in the overall quality of the treatment of a patient and his or her care options, thus propelling the growth of the market. However, various factors such as lack of skilled healthcare IT professionals coupled with large initial costs of laboratory information systems are anticipated to hinder the growth of the overall global laboratory information system market during the forecast period.
The global laboratory information system market can be segmented on the basis of component type, end user, delivery mode and geography. On the basis of end user, the global laboratory information system market can be divided into hospitals, clinics, others and independent laboratories. Based on component type, the global laboratory information system market can be categorized into hardware, services and software. By the means of delivery mode, the global laboratory information system market can be segmented into on premises and cloud based. Considering geography as a segment, the global laboratory information system market can be segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East & Africa and Asia-Pacific.
