Clinical laboratories are an integral part of healthcare industry. All the diagnostic tests, which range from blood test to genetic analysis, are performed in these clinical laboratories to diagnose different diseases. Clinical laboratories give information and services, which contribute to maximize the necessary delivery in the healthcare system such as diagnostics and tests results. It assures and provides correct and accurate test results that enable physicians to make right therapeutic and diagnostic decisions through different levels of healthcare resources. It helps professionals to start, adjust, and also stop a course of treatment, which would be compromised in absence of clinical laboratory services.
Clinical laboratory services market is in emerging state due to the increase in incidence rate of diabetes, cancer, and other infectious diseases; as the number of patient pool increases, the demand for clinical laboratory services increases. Also, these services are cost-effective, and form the least invasive method for clinical decision making. These medical technologies provide flexibility in healthcare management by early diagnosis that improves disease treatment. In addition, introduction of new technologies that provide faster analysis, and are user-friendly contribute towards the market growth of clinical laboratory services. However, factors such as inadequate reimbursements, lack of skilled professionals, and stringent government policies impede the growth of the market.
