More About This Textbook


the final volume in a three-volume series focusing on the three phases of laboratory testing — preanalytical (Volume 1), analytical (Volume 2), and postanalytical (Volume 3). With leading experts in their specialty areas as contributing authors, this series is truly one of a kind and the first to consider the entire testing process under one publication series. This three-volume series is designed to provide the laboratory community with the latest information on advances and developments in the handling of specimens prior to testing, in workstation consolidation, and in new methodologies and analytical systems as well as the expansion of point-of-care testing and the explosion of information technology. It presents the challenges and innovations that should be expected as the technology and our healthcare delivery systems evolve.
• Volume 1 provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of healthcare and its impact on diagnostic services, the evolution of technology and testing services, workflow analysis, critical pathways and specimen processing, preanalytical laboratory information systems, and preanalytical instrumentation.
• Volume 2 focuses on the use of technology, quality, and basic principles of instrumentation. Techniques and automated systems of all laboratory testing areas will be presented, including total laboratory automation and point of care
• Volume 3 addresses quality assurance and quality control issues, verification and reporting of results, postanalytical laboratory information systems and telemedicine, biosensors, the virtual clinical laboratory and artificial intelligence, and clinical laboratories in the 21st century.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Valerie L. Ng, PhD MD(Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital)
Description: This is the third volume in a series on clinical diagnostic technology, focusing on the postanalytical phase.
Purpose: This series' objective is to provide a "big picture" of clinical laboratory testing. This volume's purpose is to address important issues in the postanalytical phase. These are worthy objectives, as these issues are fundamental to the clinical laboratory's operations, and this book nicely meets them.
Audience: Anyone interested in any aspect of clinical laboratory testing would be interested in this series. This volume in particular would appeal to the "usual" audience of healthcare providers of all disciplines, as well as developers and vendors of Laboratory Information Systems (LISs), electronic medical records (EMRs), healthcare administrators (hospital, corporate, government) and policymakers.
Features: Wow, what an eye-opener of a book. Just when you think you might have a handle on running a clinical laboratory, this book comes around and opens your eyes to the many postanalytical phase issues you've been meaning to deal with but never had the time. Now is the time because now you've got the tool. The authors, all authorities in their subject areas, illuminate and clearly define common postanalytical issues. There are only eight chapters, and each is sublime. The first chapter on quality systems could stand alone as a primer on "how to do it right." The chapter on postanalytical data review, among it many highlights, will help you do "autoverification" correctly. The chapter on electronic health information networks nicely summarizes the area and delineates well the technological issues currently between LISs and EMRs. The final chapter on the "Vision" of where clinical laboratories will evolve is truly evocative and thought provoking. All of the chapters are expertly written, cover timely topics, and are full of invaluable information.
Assessment: This volume is a must-have for senior level laboratorians. This is the book you must take with you to administration (hospital, corporate, other) meetings, as it clearly and concisely makes your argument for why you have to have what you need.
