Vol. 5 No. 1 (2023) Step up to strengthen the laboratory system and prepare for patients care

Commonly, weaknesses in the laboratory system, underscore a need for policy changes to improve the country’s infectious disease respons. The laboratory and p physicians collaborate to implement systemic changes to improve the monitoring and tracking of highly transmissible diseases. Laboratory testing helps identify a disease in a population, determine how it may evolve, detect outbreaks, and assess the impact of disease control measures like vaccination. With inefficient test execution and faulty test design. A fundamental change in how fast and accurately patients are diagnosed and treated has been made possible by innovation in the clinical laboratory. Professionals in laboratory medicine are aware that a test that is analytically perfect may not always be the best to utilize; instead, it is important to consider how it will affect patient care. The laboratory should collaborate with physicians to undertake clinical utility studies for new laboratory tests that may have an influence on patient outcomes and healthcare expenditures in order to make a greater impact. They must work together to plan and carry out these trials.
