Laboratory testing affects persons in every stage of life. Everyone will have numerous laboratory tests conducted during their lifetime. Up to 85 percent of decisions about diagnosis and treatment are based on laboratory results. More than 4000 different laboratory tests are available today for clinical use, of which, approximately 500 are ordered on a daily basis. An estimated 7 to 10 billion laboratory tests are performed each year in the United States alone.
Today physicians, other health care workers and patients are finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with the tremendous amount of information being generated by clinical laboratories. The trend is expected to continue with the advent of genetic testing and personalized medicine.
ClinLabNavigator was created to help alleviate this problem. Our web site provides a comprehensive, yet practical, resource of clinical laboratory information for physicians, laboratory professionals and patients. Hundreds of up to date laboratory test interpretations, test utilization algorithms and transfusion guidelines are provided and updated on a regular basis.
Registration is free and is not required to access all of the content on ClinLabNavigator. However, registration will allow you to receive our monthly newsletter, regular updates, and allows you to submit questions in the Q&A section.
Most excitingly, you can now take ClinLabNavigator with you wherever you travel by downloading one of our iPhone or iPad apps. Other apps are in development. Stay tuned!
