The Lab Advisor is a database designed to aid in interpreting and managing clinical laboratory test information. It also supplies clinicians with information including which lab tests are appropriate for a given condition or how lab test results should be interpreted.
The Lab Advisor provides clinicians with concise, accurate, essential lab information that helps to answer critical questions when treating patients. When integrated into a HIS application, the Lab Advisor provides the answers clinicians need within their workflow.
Benefits of integrating the Lab Advisor into your HIS application include the following:
- Providing valuable clinical lab data to support your customers.
- Giving users a way to quickly answer clinical questions and then move on with their workflow.
- Differentiating and adding value to your application.
- Keeping users interacting with your application instead of leaving your application to conduct time-consuming searches in clinical references.

The Clinical Checklist database has been coined the "always do" "never do" database. It supplies clinicians with the absolute essential information they must know when caring for a patient. Clinicians use the database when they are in the process of treating a patient and they want a reminder of what interventions if implemented (or not implemented) are generally considered a serious breach of care standards. This list of imperatives may also be used to provide hospital administrators with a standard set of performance measures that clinicians can access at the point of care in either an EMR or through HCS.
This database helps provide patients with consistent care based on the most up-to-date standards.
- It is a compilation of patient care interventions that should, generally, always or never be instituted in certain clinical circumstances.
- The interventions listed are in a concise format and derived from sources including Nationally recognized quality standards;
- Guidelines published by 46 organizations approved by the Thomson Reuters editorial management team; and
- Synthesis of the best available clinical evidence
- Students in clerkships, residents, physicians, PAs and APNs
