A generalized laboratory software package—A prototype approach

  • Boaz Lazinger


A prototyped model of a generalized table-driven software package for laboratory testing and results registration is presented. The need to computerize dozens of laboratories performing hundreds of tests, called for a radical approach which would enable the quick addition of new laboratories to the system, as well as ease of maintenance. The generalized laboratory software package (GLAB) relies on a set of data tables, maintained by users, and a menu controlled environment interfacing GLAB with the rest of the hospital's systems.
