Developments in International Standards for the Management of Laboratory Test Results --- Sviluppi negli Standard Internazionali per la gestione dei risultati di esami di laboratorio
- 1. SIPMeL
The issue of digital medical laboratory data can be approached from two perspectives: that of the laboratory and that of the clinician. The latter is undoubtedly more important for quality and patient safety. The clinical point of view emerges strongly from international standards. The European ones are represented by the international patient summary (IPS) and the pharmacotherapy decision support system. The international ones are mainly on terminology, electronic records, data interoperability, POCT, INR and urine examination results, and artificial intelligence. CLSI makes an important contribution with AUTO17, the guide dedicated to semantic interoperability.
