A laboratory information system refers to a software system that stores, manages, and records data for clinical laboratories. A laboratory information system has traditionally been most proficient in sending laboratory test orders to lab instruments, then keeping a track of those orders, and then recording those results, especially to a database that is searchable.
By making use of a laboratory information system, a lab is capable of managing associated information and samples, integrating instruments, and automating workflows. In addition, one can generate credible output more quickly and is able to keep a track on the data from sequencing runs over time. It can also track data from various experiments in a bid to better efficiency.
The market is driven by need to control diagnostic errors, rise in chronic disease, utilization of LIS to enhance laboratory clinical workflow efficiency, incorporation of laboratory information system with Electronic Health Record (EHR) Systems, and increase in demand for quality & precise diagnosis.
In developed nations, the data gathered by these systems has helped in developing specific and general indicators for identifying burdens on and progress in national public health systems. The rising initiatives by governments in these regions and growing number of collaborations by public and private health systems are factors catalyzing the rapid expansion of the laboratory information system market. Improvements in healthcare services in developing and less developed economies and rapid strides being made by healthcare IT are factors accentuating the market. The high maintenance of the system and their interoperability with the existing health system pose substantial challenges to market players. These in the coming years are likely to be overcome by technology advancements and ease of configuration functionalities in the products that will be developed.
Diagnostics errors are complex, and it is very important to eradicate the errors. As per the report of the National Institute of Health (NIH), urgent change is required to address the diagnostic errors that are affecting the quality of healthcare systems across the world. Diagnostic errors continue to exist throughout all types of care, including common and rare diseases and affects the huge number of patients. In addition, the NIH stated that a person faces diagnostic error at least once in his lifetime, sometimes with the severe consequences. To remove the diagnostic errors, companies are coming up with the novel software that has the accuracy and provides true results. As per the NIH report, the concerned committee stated that to achieve better diagnostics, it is very important to collaborate among healthcare professionals, patients, and their families. The patients and their families are expected to take part in the diagnostics to improve patient care and facilitating an accurate and timely diagnosis by taking inputs from the families. This indicates that efforts are being taken to improve the quality of diagnosis. Such improvements done by the concerned committees are expected to contribute to the growth of the market in the forecast period.
However, high maintenance cost of LIS systems and lack of skilled IT professionals in the healthcare industry may hamper this growth.
In addition, introduction of novel systems and cloud-based LIS, integration of LIS with hospital management systems, and potential in emerging geographies present numerous opportunities for market growth.
The global respiratory infectious disease diagnostics market is segmented based on mode of delivery by on-premise LIS, cloud-based LIS, web hosted LIS. The cloud-based LIS segment held the largest market share due to the cloud-based setup, data can be accessed by the multiple locations and multiple systems, and from multiple branches. Thus, all these factors are augmenting the growth of cloud-based mode of delivery.
According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), in 2017, biotechnology companies in Germany spent over USD 1.43 billion annually in research and development. As research and development increases which will ultimately increase the use of laboratory information systems which will boost the market. Furthermore, reduced IT manpower, cost-effective data management, and easy deploy ability are also some of the factors for the growth of the segment.
The web hosted LIS segment is expected to have positive market growth in the forecast period. A web hosted laboratory information system has been designed and implemented to improve the timeliness and quality of laboratory data. Using needs assessment and workflow analysis tools to provide for improved patient care, increased quality control, and more efficient laboratory monitoring and reporting.
The web hosted LIS segment have a large potential to improve patient care and public health monitoring in resource-poor settings. Some of the challenges faced in these settings, such as lack of trained personnel, limited transportation, and large coverage areas, are obstacles that a well-designed system can overcome. This factor will drive the growth of the market in the forecast period.
Further, the market is also classified based on component as software and services. The software segment is held the largest market share. The prime reason for the dominance of the segment is increased in training, software upgradation, and software maintenance post-installation. Software delivers laboratory management, data management, (SDMS) and process execution/procedural ELN (LES) capabilities in a single solution. Laboratories across all industries, including pharmaceutical, food and beverage, oil and gas, petrochemical, water and environmental, manufacturing and contract testing rely on Sample Manager LIMS software to unlock the power of their laboratory data.
It is designed to help pathology and radiology labs streamline operations with custom workflows, automated communications, configurable forms, and online payments. The platform comes with a centralized dashboard, which allows real-time monitoring of activities across multiple locations. This factor will drive the growth of the market in the forecast period.
As per the survey of Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), scarcity of the skilled healthcare IT labors and professionals is the major point of concern in the healthcare industry. Developed countries are also facing the challenge of a lack of skilled labors. The US healthcare industry is facing the shortage of skilled labors in the healthcare IT sector even though the country has well-established industry and people have higher adaptability to the novel technologies. This lack of skilled labors is ultimately affecting the market of laboratory information system (LIS). People who lack system and data integration knowledge cannot operate the LIS software.
By region, the global laboratory information system market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East, and Africa. Among all of the regions, North America dominated the global laboratory information system market and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period due well-established healthcare IT sector in the region and government efforts to make access to laboratory services easy.
According to the organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), in 2017, biotechnology companies in the United States spent approximately USD 44,793 million annually in research and development. Thus, this is expected to augment the growth of the market studied over the forecast period.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, around 12,000 additional clinical laboratory professionals are required every year to meet the demand; however, only half of the number is entering the field. Thus, laboratories opt for automation to ease the work. For instance, TriCore Reference Laboratories in Albuquerque, Mexico, introduced automation in its 20% of instrumentation, which performs almost 80% of the lab's samples and displays helping the lab in managing and optimizing its functions for faster and accurate results. This factor will drive the growth of the market in the region.
The Asia-Pacific region is expected to have third-largest share due to presence of a large patient pool, availability of skilled technicians at a comparatively lower price, and a defined regulatory framework favoring expedited product approvals. Furthermore, the booming medical tourism industry in countries such as India, China, and Malaysia are expected to drive the growth of the market in the region.
