Thelaboratory is a fundamental aspect of any given health care system.This is because it helps to show the kind of an ailment that anindividual is suffering from through diagnostics with an aim ofproviding proper intervention towards the same. The most relevantstandard that exists in the field of a laboratory is proper storageof information since it touches on a very fundamental aspect ofindividuals whose diagnostic results have been analyzed (DeChesare,DeChesare & DeChesare, 2015). There lies a great challenge in theinteroperability among healthcare organization is the lack of or poorharmonization of information that is required.
Mostof the information stored is specific to a given situation and lesslikely to be applicable in another area, an issue that brings about aproblem when it come to linking up the important informationpertaining a given health issue (DeChesare, DeChesare &DeChesare, 2015).For instance, the name of a given disease could be written in anabbreviation that is not easily recognized by a medic from anotherinstitution. Such an incident provides a great problem for thesharing of information is not only enough, if such information is notbeneficial to all the parties involved.
Itis, therefore, quite important for standard be formulated in such away that the information stored, from the findings obtained withinthe laboratory can easily be understood by personnel from otherrelevant organizations and departments. There also needs to be anonline storage of the information for ease of retrieval and accesseven from afar (DeChesare, DeChesare & DeChesare, 2015).However, extreme caution should be adhered to in a bid to ensure thesecrecy and confidentiality of information.
Amanager can help promote the issue of interoperability in thelaboratories of a healthcare institution through conducting a liaisonwith other institutions in need to create a standard format forstoring health-related data and enhancing online storage of theinformation so as to make it very relevant and applicable.
