Vision Statement “LIMS Meeting 2002”

“ A national electronic laboratory data and information exchange network of member PHLs working together to ensure comparability, compatibility and interoperability of Laboratory Information Management (LIM) systems. A state LIM system would be integrated within the state laboratory, would include all public health testing and would interface with local health department, hospitals, and private laboratories as well.”
