Abstract

This report outlines the details of a project that aims to provide a system to improve the functionality of the CliniSys Laboratory Information System (LIS). The LIS currently does not automatically monitor the progress of samples as they are processed by the laboratory. With the current laboratory workload, detecting delays in reporting results on urgent samples is difficult and labour intensive. Targets for Turn Around Times (TATs) are often exceeded due to laboratory staff being too busy to run manual LIS searches and anticipate and correct delays in sample processing.

The aims and system requirements of the project address the user requirements and provide the features required to address the deficiencies in the LIS. These features are outlined and explained.

Visual examples are provided on key screens and displays. These screens are explained, and user case scenarios are given for key flows a user would follow. A high-level overview of the system architecture and implementation clearly explains the workings of the system. All important features are outlined and explained with visual representation.

Areas the project is limited by are explained and ways to overcome these limitations are outlined. The strengths and weaknesses of the program are explained and the effects that cause them are highlighted. The possible progression of the project in the future are outlined and what can affect the future of the project.
