The Service

70% of medical decisions in a hospital are made based on the evidence provided by clinical laboratories. Consequently, it is critical that the information required by healthcare professionals attending patients, arrives in a timely, reliable, complete and clinically useful manner. It is essential that central laboratories core has the capacity to provide a continuous service, focused on patient safety, in association with clinical care departments, and framed in a stringent process of quality assurance under international standards.

All outpatient and hospitalized patients treated in a medical center will undergo at least one routine study, provided by a clinical laboratory. Physicians must have appropriate tools to confirm, rule out, monitor, estimate risks or detect ways to therapeutically intervene their patients, which can be done with the help of hundreds of routine examinations provided by central laboratories.
