Steps in the Investigation of a Patient
A discipline of medicine that functions to provide diagnostic tests which are utilized by physicians to assess the health of an individual.
Must more than just a “service”. Dynamic interaction with all hospital departments (Emergency (ER), Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Cardiac Care Unit (CCU) as well as physicians outside of the hospital to maximize health care through:
Consultation regarding tests to be requested
Medical students, residents
Development, Evaluation and Implementation of New Diagnostic Assays
Supporting Clinical and Basic Research
Interaction with all departments to maintain and/or improve the flow and accuracy of information (i.e test results)
Driving force is Patient Care……This must be done effectively and economically
Laboratory Medicine Program must operate as a Non-profit business
Has a fixed yearly budget to cover staff, equipment and reagents
