According to a new report from Burlington, V.T.-based consulting firm, CapSite, 19 percent of providers are planning on replacing their laboratory information system (LIS). The report, “2012 U.S. Laboratory Information System (LIS) Study, is the most recent in a series of CapSite strategic industry reports that have evaluated the impact of the HITECH Act focus on stimulating the adoption of Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Health Information Exchange (HIE) solutions. 

CapSite talked with more than 290 hospitals on the LIS market opportunity, vendor mind share and vendor market share across the U.S. The research firm looked at vendors like Allscripts, Cerner, Epic, GE, Healthland, HMS, McKesson, Meditech, Siemens, and others.

“Our study indicates that efficiency improvements are by far the primary driver behind hospitals decision to replace their current LIS.   Additionally, we found that the most important LIS product attribute that hospital buyers are looking for in a new LIS, is integration with their current EHR.” CapSite GM and senior VP, Gino Johnson, said in a statement.
