Clinical Lab Environments & Objectives

The clinical laboratory environment has drastically changed over the past decade. Innovation, Automation, IT connectivity and logistics, has resulted in the emergence of large, high-volume laboratories focused on operational efficiency.

Driven by constant competition, these labs look to optimize their resources for cost-effective solutions.

Additionally, innovation in analysis technology and data management is driving for improved patient care and reduced time to result. Reference Hospital and University laboratories are subject to medical advances and cost constraints that require innovative technical and management solutions to provide high-quality patient care.


On the market, one can find multiple Technical and IT solutions to enable cost reduction and laboratory performance improvement. The challenge here is not to identify the quantity and the quality of the solutions but:

  • How do I make sure this solution is the best-fit solution for my lab?
  • How will the lab manage this change?
  • How will our people manage this change?
  • How will this change affect our customers?
  • How to ensure the new solution will benefit the lab and it’s customers rather than making things more difficult?
  • How do I know the solution I’m being promised is the solution I will receive?


These critical questions present are significant challenge to Laboratorians.
Sebia Workflow Solutions, combined with Sebia product offering and Scientific expertise, provides the process excellence and operational efficiency support for the laboratory to answer these questions.

Workflow Efficiency and Management

The primary mission of laboratories is to provide high qualiy, reliable and timely clinical results to healthcare professionals and patients while staying within budget. The primary objective of Workflow Managment solutions is to achieve quality with the appropriate resources.

The main principle is to concentrate the resources around the core mission of the lab while targeting and eliminating all unnecessary tasks with the ultimate goal of performance improvement.
