This presentation is meant to demonstrate how manufacturing and LEAN Six-Sigma tools/methodologies can be applied in clinical testing laboratories. Deploying these tools will help decrease the cost-of-poor-quality, increase operational efficiency and facilitate moving the company culture in a continuous improvement state-of-mind. The conceptual approach to leveraging LIS technology and integrating metric collection in the laboratory represents the (very near) future of laboratory operations data analytics standards.
