Some hours or days later, the father is involved in the name and the samples collected at the second time are labeled with the new name. The first results are identified with a different name and cannot be followed as necessary. The name written on the request form differs from the name reported through the Laboratory Informatics System (LIS). This could lead to errors in following the results or misidentification if a rigorous procedure is not instituted. The reduced space for labeling the blood containers increases the risks of misidentification, even more where plasma or serum has to be separated and aliquoted.

Diagnostic pathways can also help to integrate the laboratory more closely in the medical and administrative process of the hospital, which will boost the e­ ffectiveness of medical services with respect to DRG requirements. Most importantly, well-­defined pathways ensure that state-of-the-art laboratory tests are ordered, outdated and unnecessary tests are avoided, and that for identical diagnostic issues identical strategies are applied throughout the hospital. The laboratory can thus contribute to patient outcome and value creation, improve case management by faster and more reliable laboratory results, and finally support DRG coding by delivering the appropriate ICD codes, whenever a defined diagnosis can be attributed to an endpoint in the decision tree.
